Fussy birds 

A note on our university announce list this AM:
If you eat oatmeal from a 42-ounce Quaker Oatmeal box, please donate your box and its lid to the art department when you've polished off the last of it. Other brands and sizes don't work. Photography students make pinhole cameras out of them. Some complain that they don't want to buy it and throw the contents to the birds because they hate oatmeal.
I can't figure out if the students have decided that because students hate oatmeal the birds must too, or if they have received some notes from the crows: "Jeepers! Oatmeal again! When do we get the Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs?"
