Push Core for New Roll

Location: Weisner Building (E15)
Date: May 9, 1989
Perpetrators: pika

The Weisner Building, which houses the MIT Media Lab, is a large white tile building. The large collection of white tiles makes it resemble an inside out bathroom -- a feature which has made it the subject of many jokes and a few hacks. One of the artsy features of the building's architecture is a large arch over its entry way.

Hackers thought the arch was, perhaps, the bathroom building's empty toilet paper roll holder. To underscore the resemblance, they decided to label the holder in a manner familiar to most people.
