Thanksgiving in July


This morning we received an e-mail with a subject line that read: "LPS office closing early for Thanksgiving Break." Sending an email five months in advance? Suspicious, we decided to actually read this one:

The College of Liberal and Professional Studies will close at 3:00 pm on Thursday, July 2 and will reopen at 8:30 am on Monday, July 6.  All offices of the University of Pennsylvania will be closed on Friday, July 3 in observance of the Independence Day holiday.
Yes, you can eat turkey on Independence Day, but no LPS, you can NOT rename it. A correction e-mail followed about an hour later, but it still made us giggle.
