A handful of students took to the Boston Common Saturday to have some fun tossing around piles of dirty snow residue.
According to witnesses, the students could not help themselves from taking part in some friendly competition, pelting each other with balls of half mud, half three day old snow.
“Ahhh I think I swallowed some!” Tony Patel yelled as he spit out 7-8 ounces of the splatter picked up off the Boylston Street sidewalk.
The gravy-colored soupy liquid coated the students clothing for the remainder of the day, reportedly dripping through each of the campus’ residence halls.
At press time, students were complaining of a gritty sensation in their teeth later determined to be rock salt that was laid down on the sidewalk early Thursday.
