Throwback Thursday: An early April Fools' Day treat

You didn’t think you were the only one with a sense of humor? This Throwback Thursday, we’re here to prove it.

Ahead of April Fools’ Day, we thought we’d share a photo from the 1907 Baylor University Round Up yearbook.

Taken from the School of Medicine’s section, students snapped a picture of a skeleton in repose in the dean’s office. Is this what happens to students who hunch over their desks for too long? Is it punishment for disobeying the dean? Perhaps it’s just a skeleton taking a lunch break?

We like his sense of occasion and those dandy detachable cuffs.
