John Jay Carpet Caper Flummoxes Freshmen

 Photo by Jon Hill

A Bwog tipster has sent in a report of dastardly doings in John Jay.

Last Monday, unsavory characters entered the 10th floor lounge and made off with an 8-by-10-foot flokati rug.  JJ10ers point out that “the carpet is extremely heavy,” making it difficult to move very far or very fast, and considering the rug looks like a prop from a Liberace TV special, it’s also rather conspicuous.

Though the freshmen congratulate the Carpet Caper mastermind on the fiendishly filched furry fabric, they also really want their rug back.

“We are not fucking around,” reads one wanted poster in the dorm.

This sounds serious, so please send any information regarding the rug or those holding it hostage to or or telephone (832)-366-4074 or (203)-285-4346.  If you fear the wrath of 2012, you can also email; we don’t bite.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous the biggest tool is the person who gives a shit about this even if it does not affect him/her directly.

  • Don't worry Donny says:

    @Don't worry Donny these men are nihilists.

  • the says:

    @the rugmunchers eated it =X

  • Tool says:

    @Tool That’s what you are. Whoa, The person just told a story and you try to act like some superior being. You fail at life and are out of your element among normal people. Go back to trying to one-up people in Lit Hum.

  • or. . says:

    @or. . whoever stole the rug coud just put it back in the lounge in the middle of the night and not get in trouble for it

  • Important says:

    @Important So the rug was initially taken out of someone’s room without their knowledge as a prank and it was gone from the lounge within 24 hours. The owner of the expensive rug is pretty bummed. The pranksters feel very guilty and all around it is just a bad situation. If you know who has the rug, please send an anonymous email to the people on the flier, because it’s pretty awful that friendships on JJ10 are being affected by someone thinking that they are funny.

  • and says:

    @and youre out of your element

  • Ahhh says:

    @Ahhh I remember my freshman year when someone stole a suite armchair (we found it on the side of the street, no there were no bedbugs). We managed to track it down by a simple run through of Wallach. Then we spent a few hours watching the suite and asking some questions…long story short, we stole the toaster of the person who took it. Nothing makes toast more delicious than a thick spreading of vengeance.

    1. whoa says:

      @whoa you are such a joke

  • i know says:

    @i know who has it. they actually live in wallach, but i can’t say anymore than that.

  • noo says:

    @noo how about not putting your allergenic, ugly crap in the COMMON lounge

    admittedly it’s not as bad to put stuff in the lounge than it is to steal stuff from the lounge, but either way both actions are incorrect

  • why says:

    @why After being pissed, vomited and sexually “purified” with love juices that rug needed to go.

  • that rug says:

    @that rug realy tied the room together dude.

  • sos says:

    @sos they also appear to have stolen the octopus.

  • well says:

    @well why wait to alert public safety? first of all what can they do and secondly youd want to give the thief as little time as possible to get rid of it/get away with it/hide it right?

  • ... says:

    @... I’m not giving it back. I like it. It really brings my room together, plus it’s soft.

  • yeahhhh says:

    @yeahhhh STOP SNITCHIN

  • JJ6 says:

    @JJ6 Someone/people took away our ugly couch and traded it with two uglier chairs. They aren’t even armchairs. Asses.

  • I want to know says:

    @I want to know how many poor tauntauns were sheared to create that rug in the first place.
