UW janitors cleaning the Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) made a grisly discovery last week. At the end of a rarely used basement hallway, staff found what appears to be a shrine dedicated to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
The shrine featured a 3D-printed bowl which leaked a “foul smelling” combination of what was found to be Soylent and Monster before a photo of the Tesla co-founder. Also present were piles of printed code, which even experts considered indecipherable.
“We would have never known about it had we not caught whiff of this strange rancid-coffee odor emanating from the basement,” explained janitor Steve Chin.
“People mostly would go down to the shrine to make offerings in hopes of our lord and savior, Elon Musk, granting us things like a well-paying position at Amazon or a Tesla or a girlfriend who looks like a less alt version of Grimes,” An anonymous male CSE student explained.
“Most of the female CSE majors, well, they don’t get what’s so special about [the shrine]. They just think it’s weird and gross,” added the student when asked if only the male CSE students were involved with the Musk Shrine.
Female CSE major, Shelby Hobbs, reflected this sentiment, ruminating that the shrine was “weird, gross, and pretty sad.”
While the Musk shrine was deconstructed by janitors, whether or not it will be revived waits to be seen.
“I can’t say anything about that,” commented the anonymous CSE student, as his face convulsed in what appeared to be an attempted wink.
