What Is Horsejackery?

The act of slowing productivity and/or causing a commotion.

A reference to an event in 1934 when a local farmer’s horse got loose and wreaked havoc in the building that is now Stovehouse. The legend suggests he galloped wildly past the stoveline causing several skittish workers to flee the building. Following the event, it was declared that any act affecting safety, productivity, or business-as-usual, would henceforth be known as “horsejackery”. 

At Stovehouse, we expect and occasionally encourage an acceptable amount of horsejackery. Excessive horsejackery is strictly forbidden.

Examples of excessive horsejackery include and are not limited to:

Vandalism, fighting, name-calling, bad jokes, intolerance, drunkery, excessive flatulation, general stupidity, wine-wasting, use of comic sans, derringer brandishment, “Free Bird” shouting, moon landing denial, mansplaining, sprinting in heels, and insubordination to campus hosts.
