Fun In Higher Education

So, I was walking along on the campus of Western Washington University, where I’m lucky enough to be employed, and as I was passing one of the student dormitories I looked up and I saw this:

construction-condom

No, this was not Photoshopped.

No, there are no students currently living in the building, and this, um, device, or whatever it is, is, um, deployed as part of ongoing construction.

BUT, over the next month, THOUSANDS of new incoming students and their parents will be visiting campus for summer orientation, and I wonder if I’m the only person working on campus right now worried about the symbolism here.
