Obama’s victory makes the toilet paper fly at Auburn’s Toomer’s Corner oak trees

Gone are the halycon days when Cam Newton, Michael Dyer and Nick Fairley led the Auburn Tigers to the BCS National Championship over Oregon back in 2010. Nowadays, Chizik’s 2-7 record isn’t giving anybody much to smile about. Or, if you’re an Auburn student, their smiling equivalent of throwing toilet paper at specific (and endangered!) oak trees. But Obama did just that when he beat out Mitt Romney for the Presidency on Tuesday night.

A live feed of oak trees! Oh, 21st century. You’re so quirky.

The city of Auburn’s live video feed of the historic corner showed that plenty of toilet paper remained in the trees on Wednesday morning and according to a report from The Auburn Plainsman, the campus chapter of College Democrats were celebrating near the trees when Obama was announced as the winner on Tuesday night.

This happened because of Obama once before, back in 2008 (below). And if he keeps getting elected, who knows how many more times they’ll toss those rolls in his honor. The question is, what would happen to the trees if Romney won? Death by fire?
