Oberlin College, my delightful alma mater, put some more distance between them and some recent ugly news by changing into "Meowberlin" for the day.

Meowberlin is an apt nickname for the liberal Ohio school. Also, everyone loves cat pictures. That's what the internet is for. Other than changing "Oberlin" to "Meowberlin," the text looks unaltered, but Oberlin did match the pictures to the text. Well, mostly with this one:

"Green issues are of critical importance to us." Very clever Meowberlin. What's that cat doing anyway. If it's thirsty enough, to be scooping water out of a vase, maybe someone should give it a drink.

"Meowberlin has been on the front lines of changing the world for almost two centuries, often serving as the prototype for progress even in the face of strong resistance." Where "the front lines" are lines on a sidewalk and "the face of strong resistance," is the face of a chicken. Not mocking, chickens are pretty tough to deal with, especially if you are an animal about the same size.
