Engineering professor Subhasis Nandi gets schmucked in the face by a whipped cream pie, courtesy of the UVic Engineering Order of Pi, a student group holding its ninth annual charity drive for the Queen Alexandra Hospital and Mustard Seed Food Bank. The drive, called “Cream Pie a Friend for Charity,” runs March 3–7 during National Engineering Week. Anyone can have a friend put on trial for a minimum $10 donation, and when a charge is laid, the Order of Pi (whose motto is Splaterominous Quam Plurimi) sends out a team of “monks” to put the accused on trial. A guilty verdict leads to a face full of pie. In this case, Nandi volunteered to set an example. For more information call 721-8822 or go online to
