2001 Wylde Q. Chicken Award Winner:
Emilia Garvey
Psychedelic Pre-Class Dancing

Audrey Wells, head of Uni's English Department, nominated Emilia:

Emilia wears a different psychedelic, kooky outfit daily. Before film class 2nd hour in the north attic, Emilia turns to a radio station playing music and dances.

Imagine coming up the stairs to class, hearing some random music and seeing Emilia as a pink fuzzy swirl - or wearing a bright green flowered smock - or some new-found, unusual, always colorful outfit - dancing away at 8:50 AM. She always stops in time for class to begin, too.

Honorable Mention:
David Sims
Functions of North America

David Sims’ Self-Nomination:

I took an algebra assignment and turned it into a satirical information booklet about functions, as if the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Functions had made a field guide for North American math students.

For Acc. Algebra II/Trig last year, we had to make a "Function Toolkit," a packet of papers describing the characteristics of 10 or so basic families of math functions. It was due at the same time as other projects, and I knew I would hate to do it if I didn’t have some fun. I sat down one night and made it a public service booklet against cruelty to functions (using exponentials as shoe-horns, for example.

The creative juices flowing from me were about the only bright spot about Algebra II last year, a relatively dry course.

Honorable Mention:
Yong-Bee Lim
Spontaneously Generated Hugs

Nomination by Audrey Wells, English Teacher

Yong-Bee is a hugger. He hugs teachers, staff, and other students.

Yong-Bee opens his arms to give a hug usually in the hallway - often when you could use it and least expect it. His hugs are warm - as hugs usually are - but also formal and not intrusive.

Yong-Bee's hugging is definitely "out of the box." It's weird at first but now I appreciate it. He’s truly reaching out, expressing affection, making peace and not war. His classmates may accuse him of "brown-nosing" but he continues. How many senior boys in any school share kindness this openly? C’mon, class of ’72, Yong-Bee is Wylde Q!

Ethan Chew & Crystal Chiang
Crazy Stories

Ethan Chew initiated a collaborative story writing group by e-mail. He nominated Crystal Chiang as one of the groups most creative contributors. The Class of ’72 decided to award an Honorable Mention to both of them.

Ethan’s Submission:

Actually, we have a store-mail group where we have one story, but everyone
writes their own parts of the story, so here is the whole story with all
of each writers' sections labled (down under there).

Key to terms in story

Superior Species (SS)-People (especially females) who have some degree of
authority over me (Seniors Diane Plewa (Diana Plewaea Supeioria, title SS
Diane) and Masha Gelfand (Mashaea Gelfea Kangarooate Supeioria, title SS
Masha)

Inferior Species (IS)-Me since my species is 'lower' than theirs (Ethanus
Chewus Boous Lizardus Lippus Ebrius Chickensuitus Crazyus Inferiorus)

C-66 Attack/Transport Cloud- Vehicle SS uses to attack IS and quell IS
revolts, also can be used as a recreational vehicle to try to pick up SS
mates. Equipped with lightning blaster and IS-seeking bombs.

Magic Chicken Suit (MCS) - A magic chicken suit the IS uses to revolt and
fight the oppression by the SS, equipped with a cloaking field, a super
head-rubber, an insta-freezer, a teleportation device, and a variety of
other hardware with unknown purpose. Also comes in seven snappy colors,
one size fits all.

Magic Boxing Kangaroo Suit (MBKS) - Like the MCS, but it's in the shape of
a boxing kangaroo and SS Masha uses it for her own purposes. Orgin
unknown.
