Ya Know? The Fat One?

Written by

Overheard in New York’s humor generally relies on the fact that readers are missing context. One of yesterday’s posts, however, relies on the fact that any Columbia student worth their salt knows exactly who they’re talking about.

Guy #1: Which one did you make out with?
Guy #2: I dunno, I can’t tell the difference. Whichever one is Jessica.

–Pearl’s, Amsterdam Avenue

    sorry, we don't all get freshmen jokes

  3. still in the dark

    I too am not worth my salt. I don't know any carman twins. Most non-freshmen probably don't know either. Explain!

  4. not a freshman joke

    wow. times have changed. i guess they're seniors now, but there's a pair of twin sisters that lived together in carman and took all the same classes..

  6. not a freshman joke

    and continue to dress close to identically... was a big campus joke for a long time......

  7. For those who are confused.

    Consult the November 2005 issue of the Blue and White . The Fileri twins did an excellent writeup of them.

  8. freshman

    thanks for the clarification!

    is the roger rabbit reference part of the original post, or just the bwog's own rapier wit?

    slightly confused gets points for using the word "rapier"

    the joke is so well known that you don't even need to use the Carmen modifier. "the twins" is more than enough.
