There seems to be a lively debate as to Quales legitimancy as a "real" tiptradition, however no one can deny that Quale spreads joy throughout East campus. Perhaps in the future Quale will be more widely accepted as a tiptradition.
Quale was brought to Tip in 2008 and and the sheer delight this inflatable killer whale sparked amongst tipsters was passed down to the next generation of tipsters. The keeper of Quale said the passing down of Quale was because "we all need an inflatable something in our lives." Due the amount of love that is constantly bestowed upon Quale, this statement seems to hold true.
