FMOTQ 101: Pick-Up Puns

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

“The time has come, the Sophomore Class Cabinet said, to talk of many things.

Of PSETs and football and dormcest, of awkward hook-ups and flings.”

The Master (get it?!) of infidelity himself.

Welcome to October 22, 2013.  A day (or rather, night) that shall live on in infamy.  Known to some as Full Moon on the Quad and known to others as a “Moonlight Makeout” (…if it’s on SparkNotes, it must be legit?), FMOTQ is a Stanford tradition that has freshmen and seniors alike worrying about their dental hygiene.

So grab your mouth wash and your sparkliest spandex (for girls and guys alike), because it’s time to enjoy some food truck grub, watch student groups (Mendicants / Alliance / DV8) strut their stuff, swarm with the truly incomparable LSJUMB, and get down with DJ Lumo.

And, of course, kiss that special someone.  Or maybe multiple someones.

To help you find that sketchy grad student, innocent freshman, or subsequent box on your bingo chart, here are some Nerd Nation-appropriate puns to keep you in the game:

  • On a scale of 1 to America, how free are you tonight?
  • I wish I was your derivative so I could lie tangent to your curves.
  • If I were an enzyme, I’d be helicase so I could unzip your genes.
  • I don’t have a library card, but do you mind if I check you out?
  • It doesn’t take a genius to see how attractive you are, but if it did, I would be overqualified.
  • Baby, if you were words on a page, you’d be what they call FINE print.
  • I wish I were adenine because then I would be paired with U.
  • You know, it’s not the length of the vector that counts… it’s how you apply the force.
  • What’s your sine?  It must be pi/2 because you’re the 1.

…and perhaps the most appropriate for our CS 106A, Silicon Valley-loving undergrads:

Hi, I’m writing a new make-out program.  Would you like to join the beta test?

Be sure to stay sober and keep it classy, though.  Nobody wants to see you come into your dorm like a wrecking ball.

Happy smooching,

TUSB

Three Quarters Moon on the Old Union…on a Monday

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Imagine this, but dark and with lots of people making out.

This year’s FMOTQ is neither a full moon nor really on the quad. The real full moon was on Saturday–which, by most people’s standards, would be the perfect day to have an event. But instead of holding it then, FMOTQ is instead on Monday (which also happens to be right in the middle of midterm week).

Additionally, instead of being on the Quad, most of the festivities are being held at Old Union. There is a concert until 11, after which people will amble on over to the quad. On the bright side, this means the amount of time spent awkwardly milling around before midnight is reduced to an hour or less.

Full Moon has certainly done its share of morphing over the years (see the Daily’s retrospective here). Far from its humble origins, the more recent university-sanctioned incarnation of the annual event is very different. But it’s still, well…something.
