"As an engineering school, it might be a bit embarrassing if we present this as the world's largest drum. Has anyone compared this to any other drum in the world?!!"

Let's go invent a worldwide system of near-instantaneous communication so that we can show everyone a picture of the cake we made! #NailedIt

"Wow, this entry should definitely win the Purdue Indianapolis Extension Drum Model Competition! It's just great! The next entry is WAY off the mark. It looks like a ladies purse--what were they thinking?"

Fellas, the claim on this drumhead is a bit of stretch if you ask me.

So, how exactly are we going to cut this while it's standing up?

"Thank God it's a kick drum, since the previous engineering model amputated my hand ... are we sure we want to sully the Purdue name with this Indianapolis nonsense?"

Kind of makes me wonder about Purdue Global ...

Never mind the drum--what have they done to the drummer??

I've thoroughly examined this drum, and........you guys can't be serious! OMG, you are serious!

Hmm...Let's look under the table to see what's keeping it from just rolling off the edge?

I'm assuming this cake is not to scale?

What is this, the world's largest drum for ANTS?

"Do you think the world's tiniest drummer is going to pop out?"

I'm all for miniaturization, but I think the Boilermakers have gone too far this time.

IU's merchandising team shows serious reservations about the upcoming university merger with Purdue in Indianapolis.

Do you suppose there's a teeny tiny football team hiding inside?

Submitted by ecgarris on Mon, 01/10/2022 - 16:22

Purdue needs a better marketing team.

World's biggest drum? Well, it's big enough to distract this guy while I pick his pocket!

Is that the World's Largest Knife in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Not quite what I expected...
