Two unnamed male students were reportedly involved in a violent altercation at a F.O.L.D.(Flying with Origami, Learning to Dream) event on October 10.

Hexaflexagon. I looked it up.

Scissors were reportedly used as weapons in the altercation.

The event was a modular workshop held by the student group in Sidney Smith Hall, and was planned with the intent of teaching students how to fold hexaflexagons and firework origami designs.

The altercation allegedly escalated from verbal exchanges to physical violence. Witnesses tried to intervene and an ambulance was called. The two students went to the police station and could face charges.

Susan Cui, F.O.L.D. president, declined requests for comment. “The situation is still under investigation. At this moment we cannot release any information and will be unanimously declining an interview,” Cui said.

I’m not surprised by this. Not at all. After all, where do tensions run higher than at origami events? Origami events are cutthroat, man. Everybody’s carrying weapons and looking for trouble. And hey, when you’re learning how to fold hexaflexagons and firework origami designs everything is ratcheted up a few more notches. And scissors were used? No surprise there. That’s the traditional weapon of choice for Origamians.

On a related note, how the hell do you “unanimously decline an interview”?
