The Morning Link: Lifetime Statistics That Should Be Kept for Everyone…OH MY GOD IS THAT ME

oh my god

Oh my god. Oh my god.

I was browsing through a Cracked gallery post to link to this morning (23 Lifetime Statistics That Should Be Kept for Everyone) when I came across this entry.

That’s me.

Let me explain. I used to run a now defunct blog in college where I wrote about student life but mostly made fun of the Greek system, frats and sororities and such. It kind of became a big thing (5,000 students a day read it and it was votedUS News’s Best College Blog in the Nation), and there was a manhunt to find out who I was because I was writing anonymously. It was a crazy, fun time, and how I ended up doing what I do today. I’ll have to tell the entire story some time, if anyone would care to hear it.

Anyway, I ended up continuing to write afterward even with my identity revealed, and ended up posting this picture for my final farewell article where I pretended to be a stereotypical frat douche to give readers a laugh.

Now, apparently, this picture comes up when you search for something but I can’t figure out what. “Douche,” “frat boy” and “frat douche” haven’t turned up anything, yet here I am. Fun fact, I can’t shotgun a beer. No comment on the other stats. I do appreciate being named after an Arrested Development character, however.

Anyway, I thought this was hilarious. Go here to see the gallery.

    Reading through your farewell article made me think that it must’ve been a pretty awesome blog. Always nice to learn a little bit more about the backstory of the founder of Unreality.

      Yeah it was fun. In retrospect I could be a little mean, but that’s why people tuned in I guess. Definitely made my senior year of college a great time.

    Hilarious. It’s amazing how small the internet, and even the world, really is. Also, way to be the Gossip Girl of U-M.

    I’d really be interested in hearing that story as well. I just returned to college and am making a serious go of it, so I’ll take inspiration anywhere I can find it.

    I tried REALLLLLLLLY hard to figure out the google search my friend. No dice. And now HR has more reasons to investigate my internet browsing haha

    I read that same article yesterday and thought it was you, I just dismissed it as I couldn’t picture a scenario where you’d be all ‘douched out’ like in the photo.

    This is so meta.
