From the mid 70's, and not me but a friend.

For parents' weekend, a buddy of mine put on a legit white turban, fake full beard, and his Dad's graduation gown, shorts, and a pair of white slippers. At the intersection of Rugby and U Ave., he stopped people on foot and in their cars waiting for lights, asking urgently for directions to "Montechickello" in a horrible Indian accent. Some cars completely missed their green light cycle. Chaos at the intersection for 20 minutes before the U police stepped in and ushered him aside. They had no idea what to do with him. He slipped away when they got distracted. We all watched in amazement from the edge of the chapel grounds.

Charlottesville was a lot more fun back then, at least for some of us.

I still chuckle about it.
