UT Decides Longhorns Have Been Pranked, Will Rip Out Maroon Bluebonnets

Maroon bluebonnets, at best an oxymoron and at worst a deep insult to the Austin community’s burnt-orange sensibilities, are slated to be removed from the University of Texas main campus.

UT officials would prefer not to announce the exact date the offending plants will be taken up, said Markus Hogue, the university’s program coordinator for irrigation and water conservation.

“We anticipate soon,” Hogue said Wednesday. “We’re trying to make it as discrete as possible, and we’re trying to capture the seeds. Next year, we’re going to pull any maroon bluebonnet as soon as we see it.”

No one has confessed to secretly seeding two beds in the shadow of the UT tower with Aggie maroon bluebonnets, but Hogue said he suspects it was the work of Texas A&M supporters.
