Bwogger and SoCal resident Nicki Camberg has some questions, namely: what are duck boots? What is she supposed to do when it snows? Is sledding an actual thing? These aren’t rhetorical please help her.

There’s trouble afoot on the internet today, namely over at right-wing web blog/apparent Matthew Arnold fanzine Sweetness & Light. It seems they’ve taken none too kindly to a certain magazine’s Controversial cover image — and it’s not the cover image (or the magazine) you’re thinking of! No, their bone to pick is with the Jester, […]
A bunch of you have sent us this Jezebel-by-way-of-other-blog post about how old-timey folks conducted surveys that assumed Barnard was full of hussies — just like you kids today joke about!

(page 9) The most useful thing Jester has ever published (page 14) National stereotyping, with […]
The 2006-07 school year has contained multitudes. In fact, it may just be the most eventful year Columbia’s had since… well, the year before. Remember Matthew Fox? The Chung-Diamond “scandal”? “Don’t Be a Pussy”? “Epilogue to Our Crime & Punishment: A Petition“? Bwog certainly does, so step into the Wayback machine – you’re about to […]
The Columbia Undergraduate Science Journal has fired another salvo in their ongoing feud against Jester, claiming responsibility for the recent disappearance of 700 issues of the most recent Jester issue. They’ve placed the once-missing issues all over campus, and attached a message: “Jester Promotes Scientific Fallacies.” The full-page manifesto contains many of the CUSJ grievances, a […]
Jester is not happy. All of Jester‘s remaining new issues–at least 700 of them–have disappeared from the Student Government Office, where they were waiting patiently for distribution on Monday. If anyone has seen Jester‘s issues, please let them know, and if you yourself are the culprit, well then shame on you. What are you going […]
