I'm curious

Why were a bunch of people walking around campus with black paint smudged on their foreheads today?

edit: Thanks guys, for explaining the Ash Wednesday thing, but holy shit, I hate this community. I just got like 15 comments all with the exact same answer.

And for the record, no, I'm not retarded. I just don't know dick about Catholicism. I actually thought the smudges on people's foreheads were either A. Some Mardi Gras thing, or B. Some bizarre kind of protest thing.
