Joke’s On Us

OK! You got us.

As you may (or more likely, may not) have realized, our April Fool’s Day joke was to turn Bwog into Bwog for Mt. Holyoke, the all-women’s college. You may have noticed the Mt. Holyoke tower behind the Bwog nameplate, and the women’s sign on Home tab. We’ve been reporting on the day to day happenings of their campus. We posted about their speakers, their lunch menus, and their crime problems, all very real (as the links will show) and happening now in the town of South Hadley, MA. But alas, readers…you didn’t get the trick! Nostra culpa.

So it’s back to Columbia bwogging as usual! Now that we’re all back in Morningside Heights, in the spirit of bad April Fool’s Day jokes we’ve collected signs of foolin’ around campus. If you have any better jokes, overheards, or April Fool’s tips, please post ’em in the comments.

    @LAME Why would you take it down already? I never got to see it . . . is there a link to the older version?

      @Anish Click the “Bwog nameplate” link in the article.

    @Anonymous Maybe this is the joke.
    Considering the idea of turning Bwog into Mount Holyoke’s Blog funny, is way funnier than actually doing it.
    If that was the point, then kudos.

    @Anonymous April fools jokes on the internet are not known for their subtlety. Next time, go all out, new colors and shit.

  • april fools... well played. says:

    @april fools... well played. The Spectator has an article out about turning Low Library into a giant Starbucks, which is funny mostly because that would be the single most awesome thing to happen while I was at Columbia. If only.

  • yeah says:

    @yeah that was stupid. seriously, bwog. you’re smart people. at the very least, you should have made it about Cornell…

    1. yeah says:

      @yeah that would have made more sense. I’m not sure most Columbians are particularly knowledgeable about Mount Holyoke

      1. Anonymous says:

        @Anonymous more like we know NOTHING about Mt. whatever.

        1. Anonymous says:

          @Anonymous though Mt. Whatever isn’t exactly a shitty school… I mean, we’re obviously awesome, but joking to be a Holyoke blog isn’t exactly insulting our intelligence. (Besides, the straight ladies and non-dudeish lesbians are hot- my cousin’s a student and so I visited last year)

    @classicist You mean \nostra culpa\.

    1. Hans says:

      @Hans Nostra culpa!

  • Never... says:

    @Never... I never even noticed Low Library behind the template anyways.
