Wolf!

Since the proliferation of cell phones, I have thought that church pastors, speakers, musical program directors, etc., should arrange for a phone to ring at the beginning of the event.  As everyone has likely observed, when one person is sent scrambling for their ringing phone, the rest of the phone owners in the room tend to double check their ringer level.

Either someone has a sick sense of humor, or they had a similar plan at the University of Virginia, when the student newspaper began tweeting about random dorm searches, apparently prompting a massive alcohol dump.

It isn't much of a stretch to find a motive for this sort of prank - just over three weeks until finals begin, time for students to buckle down and study, get their grades up, prepare for the school year's end. 

On the other hand, it is just over three weeks until many of the students head back home for the summer - back to parent's homes and watchful eyes.  It would be interesting to see if there is a spike in (replacement) alcohol sales this weekend.

I wonder if the school paper's reporters were hanging out by the dumpsters when they sent those tweets...
