TRIVIAL PURSUIT: WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING IS NOT A NAME FOR THE ACADEMY?

1) Camp Tecumseh

2) Boat School

3) Canoe U

4) Chesapeake Sailing Technology School

Answer at end of blog.

PLEBE STUFF: “How’s the Cow?”

Please are often asked this question and of course they need to know the answer. The question actually relates to the amount of milk remaining in the US Naval Academy Dairy container in front of the Plebe who has been asked the question. The Plebe must lift he container to ‘feel’ the contents , then puts it down and shouts:

“Sir, She walks, she talks, she’s full of chalk.  The lacteal fluid extracted from the female of the bovine species is highly prolific to the ___ degree.”

GOUGE: “Gouge” is the information you need to know for an activity/event/etc.

SIQ: Sick in Quarters. If your Plebe is SIQ, he/she will probably not participate in evolutions for the time period in SIQ.

YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE THIS

On the second day of Plebe Summer, one mother found a photograph of her plebe on mt website. When she received the print, she bought an expensive frame so she could place it on her bedroom desk. Every morning she got up and gave the frame a hug. Thanksgiving came around and her son finally come home. She showed him the photograph. He responded, “Mon, That’s not me.” The mother retorted, “Yes it is, for seven weeks  it gave my comfort. It is you.”

PLATE EATER: A Plebe who can not get enough to eat. Always hungry.

ANSWER to TRIVIAL PURSUIT: The answer is Camp Tecumseh, which is actually a nickname for Plebe Summer, not the Academy.
