An outbreak of “Eskimo kisses” in the center-right corner of the Hodson Dining Commons has Taylor University women on the lookout!
These kisses, considered by many female students to be a form of harassment, take place exclusively on Tuesdays, and occur when a man surprises an unaware woman by rubbing his nose against hers.
The perpetrators are almost exclusively members of The Brotherhood floor of Sammy Morris, while the victims are generally the most attractive woman nearby.
While men seem to regard the act with some amusement, many women are less than pleased. “I think it’s adorable, you know, when couples do it, or children!” said Bethany Fisher, a freshman. “But Sammy guys make it awkward!” She admits to being Eskimo-kissed and said “if it’s a choice between going hungry and going over there, I don’t know; I’ll probably go hungry.
The men of Morris have a slightly different perspective. “Eskimo kisses are awesome because they’re kisses, but they don’t touch the erogenous zones.” said Brotherhood freshman Samuel Wright. “Oh, wait, they do. Maybe a different zone, a different flavor?”
In any case, the threat of Eskimo kisses seems to have had a noticeable effect upon meal choices. The Sandwich Bar, normally very popular with girls, becomes heavily male-dominated on Tuesdays.
Brotherhood freshman Jonathan Keur spoke for the floor regarding the future of Eskimo kisses. “We Broho’s don’t need women to make us a sandwich! Since the Brotherhood doesn’t let traditions die; Tuesday will always be ‘Eskimo Kiss Tuesday’!”
