Yes, GC music folks do seem to be into tattoos,
piercings, and other
bodily mutilations, but, strangely enough, it appears to be only the girls?!
(Man, it looks like Zorro is back at it with the foot thing.)
Mary, Allison & Michelle
(When they realized that their photo was going to be taken, each
quickly removed the additional four or five slices of pizza from their plates.)
Upperclasspersons Adam and Brian seem to finally have a handle
on finger foods. Congratulations, gentlemen.
First-time picnicker Joanna falls for the "invisible pizza" gag.
Musicians and pizza ... ahhhhh, nirvana.
For some unknown reason, the ham pizza wasn't moving
quite as well as we had hoped.
Tiffany correctly suspects that the innocent-looking Melissa has just
laced her slice of pizza with cycloprenzabassovox--a fast-acting muscle
relaxant that lowers the vocal chords of sopranos by at least
two octaves for as many weeks.
Hmm ... the ol' shrunken head in the ice chest gag--always good
for a few screams.
Dr. Lewis and Old Testament Scholar Dr. Redditt
chuckle over Brian's grades in Religion.

Ms. Lewis, Dr. Lewis (wishing he had worn stripes after all)
& Dr. Tilford
Olga and Algae, the department's sopralto twins
go "Mary Kay" on us.
Paige, Ken & Tyler
(In 2007, Paige will invent brownie-flavored dental floss
and become independently wealthy.)
(In 2012, Ken will invent cavity-resistant, brownie-flavored toothpaste
--his name becoming a veritable household word in A.D.A. circles.)
(Quite fond of brownies, himself, Tyler never brushes his teeth again and in
2016 gets listed in Ripley's has having the world's worst case of gingivitis.)
Those who participated in the pizza fight were immediately incarcerated
in the Band Van (which, unsurprisingly, smells like sweaty cows
on a Texas cattle drive).

A little hard of hearing after singing with a rock band, Jessica
misunderstood when it was announced that the theme
of this year's picnic would be "Show Us Your Scar."
Adam demonstrates how mid-Atlantic migratory water fowl
can become entangled in the refuse of thoughtless duck hunters.
Faux volley ball
(We couldn't find the steenking net!)
Igor, the ever-shy, outcast music student who shows up every year
at this time--and who does not know his key signatures, by the way--

deciding it more nutritious to simply resume snacking on the bugs
that ate the leaves.
Annual mystery of the vanishing volley balls solved ....
In high school, Victoria and Katie were voted as the persons
most likely to fulfill their thrill-seeking fantasies
via portable industrial food carts.
One should never leave shoes unattended at a music picnic.
... A close-up of this pair just before paper napkins were
firmly crammed into the toes. ... Was gonna do pizza or brownies,
but remembered the danged Golden Rule at the last minute.
Collin & Missy ... only moments before the runaway lawn
tractor put a "damper" on the picnic.
"Doctor, is it Blow Pop Tongue?"
"Egad, miss, it's not as you suppose. You have the most pronounced
case of Geographic Tongue that I've ever seen!"
Dr. Campbell eventually decides to give up choral conducting
for an embarrassing, though lucrative, career with the Bolshoi Frisbee Ballet.
