After a week of campus imploding in nearly every way possible (still waiting on a legitimate protest of anything, though) in the midst of finals, Bwog thinks we all need a moment to give into that tingly feeling in the pit of your stomach, lean your head back, and just scream. That’s right, tonight is […]
In case you missed the opportunity to achieve immortal kleos at last night’s pillowfight, Bwog invites you to relive the madness with this gratuitous gallery of gory photographs: Two combatants reflect on their conquests: Girl 1: ”OUR PILLOWS ARE STAINED WITH THE BLOOD OF THOSE WHO CHALLENGED US” Girl 2: ”But like, actually though….I’m not sleeping on […]

Remember the last pillow fight? That was epic. Facebook says 864 people […]
