    Jamie P has definitely been working on his butthole. It is so much

    rounder than last year.

    Laura F.’s butthole is looking real tight and dark. That’s a top ten butthole

    if I’ve ever seen one.

    This is Jamie’s older brother, so maybe good buttholes

    just run in the family. This thing is so nice it even has an echo.


    7. Austin K.

    Austin’s got the fundamentals down: round, tight and dark.

    Nice butthole, Austin!

    Austin Y.’s butthole just edged out Austin K.’s butthole

    for style points. Way to keep that butthole fresh.

    Wow, Sharon. That’s gotta be the roundest butthole we’ve

    seen on this list so far. Take note, campus.


    4. Sandy P.

    Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 2.11.28 PM

    She’s Donny and Jamie’s cousin. I don’t know

    what it is, but the Ps just manufacture amazing buttholes.

    That’s straight up coal mine potential. Noice!

    Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 2.11.35 PM

    Can we get someone to check if this is a real butthole? This looks

    too dark to be real. No, but seriously, nice butthole, Colin.


    2. Anna C.

    Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 2.11.42 PM

    Cowabunga! This butthole just does not stop! It’s gonna be

    hard to top your butthole, Anna!

    Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 2.11.47 PM

    I can’t tell if I’m looking at a butthole, or the butthole of God. This is one divine butthole. Phil, I have no words. You have got the best butthole on campus.

    Op Ed: Don’t Ban Branding

    April 5th, 2015

    Recently, AD has come under fire in the national media for a branding scandal, after one new member got an infection after being branded on his buttocks.  The college has vowed to crack down harder on “hazing” activities such as this one, but I, and many others, feel that this action is grossly misguided.  Banning all branding is not the solution.  If we outlaw branding, branding will only be driven further underground.  Instead, the college needs to establish safe branding practices, and public, college sanctioned spaces for ass-branding, to ensure infections like this never occur again.

    Let me be clear.  Dartmouth is a college, and college students are always going to brand each other’s asses.  There’s no way around it.  If you put together a lot of young, intelligent people, away from their parents for the first time, the natural conclusion is that they will start ass-branding. Even in the most repressive environments, teenagers will find ways to create lasting and permanent burn marks on each other’s butts, even without the proper branding tools, and all too often this means using unsafe branding techniques such as irons or hair straighteners.  Unfortunately, brands created with these methods are likely to become infected, and students who iron each other’s buttocks in secret are unlikely to seek help for such injuries.

    The  real problem is that we teach young people that ass-branding is something illicit that should be done in secret.  Studies have even shown that even something as simple as branding the family crest into a child’s rear end at holidays or family gatherings makes them more likely to practice safe branding practices in the future.  Unfortunately, with its zero tolerance policy, Dartmouth is encouraging the same repressive attitudes towards branding that lead to unhealthy behaviors. 

    Another common misconception is that the incident that happened at AD happened because of the fraternities.  People mistakenly believe that, if it were not for “pledge term”, this young man’s ass would have escaped unscathed.  Unfortunately, this is far from true.  When we get rid of frats, the branding goes underground, to the freshman dorms, in what are known as “room branding parties”, unsupervised orgies of debauchery and sizzling ass cheeks.  Unfortunately, in unsupervised environments such as this one, safe branding techniques are rarely practiced.

    So, instead of the draconian measures proposed by the college to end all branding of asses, a measure which is unfortunately unfeasible, I propose a system where safe branding is allowed, and even encouraged by the administration.  I imagine Phil Hanlon taking a hot iron to an incoming freshman’s ass during orientation at a branding mixer in Collis Commonground, and a new system of BIPA’s, brand infection peer advisors.  Branding is simply a fact on college campuses.  Either Dartmouth can embrace this, or it can continue its zero tolerance policy, driving branding even further underground.

    Acceptance Speech

    March 23rd, 2015

    I’m proud to accept the Marketing Professional of the Year Award and there are so many people that I would like to thank. My boss for pushing me to succeed, my friends for supporting me every step of the way, my parents for raising me to be the man I am today, and of course the haggard ghost of Benjamin Franklin, who has haunted me since I was a young boy.

    I guess you could say I’ve been preparing for this job my whole life. Ever since I was little I was always more interested in pretending I was making posters to show off my make-believe business, while long dead founding father Ben Franklin cast his unearthly gaze toward me, instead of just playing sports or action figures with the other boys. Then as I got older you might say it was Ben’s bony hand on my shoulder guiding me or maybe my own sense of vision, but I knew I wanted to study marketing.

    It takes determination to succeed in this world, determination and just following your gut. You don’t rebrand one of the biggest fast food companies on the planet, the great Mickey D’s, without knowing when to listen to your gut. Ol’ Ben taught me that when he would point to his bony insides through the ethereal rags he wore and told me that “The ideas are here my child. Right here. When the crows feed this is where they will go first.”

    The only other day that rivals this in importance for me is my graduation. I could see how proud all my family members were of me. Even my Dad, strong ex-marine that he is, shed a tear. Hell, I remember on that day Ben rose up into the sky and let out a blood curdling scream that ruptured the heavens; henceforth large drawings of his greatest inventions fell from the sky and warped like origami to form the phrase “Congratulations, my greatest disciple.” It was truly a special day for me.

    Finally ladies and gentlemen I would like to say that I haven’t reached all of my goals at this company. No sir I have big plans going forward in the world of marketing and I hope you’ll all join with me. Now as Ben comes up to the stage I want to thank you all again for helping me realize my dreams. With this knife I drop my blood onto this contract, signifying that Ben and I can become one being as he always planned. As his ghostly form envelops me, the ritual can be complete and FINALLY WE ARE ONE, WE ARE THE LIGHTNING THAT YOU CANNOT TAME. TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG. TOGETHER WE ARE THE FUTURE. TOGETHER WE WILL BUILD A NEW WORLD. WE LOVE YOU MOM AND DAD.

    ‘18 Enters TDX Basement in Search of Lifelong Friendship

    March 1st, 2015

    Sources close to Mike Peters ’18 confirmed that the freshman entered TDX last Saturday night in hopes of forming close relationships with fellow partygoers in the fraternity’s crowded basement.

    “Everyone is always telling me I’ll come away from Dartmouth with friends that will last a lifetime,” Peters explained, pausing momentarily to introduce himself to a couple grinding near him, “And TDX seems like the perfect place to start. Just look how many cool and social people are in this very basement!”

    As he pushed his way through the sweaty entanglement of gyrating bodies, even a failed attempt to make small talk during a stranger’s keg stand did not discourage Peters from seeking out the kind of college friends that he’d been told would one day make up his wedding party.  Intrigued by the wide range of social possibilities that the basement offered—including fighting fellow students for access to a limited beer supply and holding a girl’s hair back as she vomited in a corner—Peters continued to look for opportunities to form lasting bonds with the people around him.

    “I can’t believe how many interesting Dartmouth students I’ve met in this basement,” Peters told reporters, “Just look at that guy over there in the jersey.  He told me he’s already had 17 beers tonight.  And that girl in the green shirt? She apparently likes dancing.”

    Although Peters had only interacted with a small percentage of the party’s attendees by the time the basement cleared out, the night wasn’t a complete failure.  Peters returned to his room content with the knowledge that the unidentified girl with whom he had briefly made out would one day become his wife.

    Wifi Outage Impedes Learning

    March 1st, 2015

    The Dartmouth Secure server, the main source of wifi for campus, unexpectedly went down at midmorning yesterday. The unexplained outage lasted from approximately 11:05-12:43. Economics 10: Statistical Methods, taught by Professor William Trentos, meets during this time and experienced the dramatic fallout of the wifi failure.

    Firstly, most students in the lecture experienced a state of denial. Many reported constantly refreshing their respective Facebook pages, Pintrest boards, Youtube videos, Reddit threads, and in the case of creepy Carl who sits near the back, their Pornhub pages. After a few minutes, it became clear to most class members that there was indeed a wifi outage. Students then had to face the incredibly difficult task of engaging with the Econ material for the remaining 50 minutes. Reactions from members of the class were mixed.

    Jack Smith, ’18, comments that around minute 12 without Reddit, he began to shiver and sweat, reporting an acute headache and shakiness.

    Cynthia Cross, ’15, stepped out of the classroom pretty soon after the outage, commenting that once she “actually started listening” she “realized that this was not French 2.”

    Ben Miller, ’17, says the outage forced him to leave a lot of the Buzzfeed quiz he was working on unfinished. Now, he said, he has “absolutely no idea which Sex and the City character I am” but instead has “like a pretty good understanding of probability theory.” He said that he hopes the administration will realize that these DartmouthSecure outages have “real consequences.” In fact, he says that because of this distraction he will now have to stay up pretty late catching up on videos of dogs that look like the cast of Scandal.

    Justin Michaels, ’16, counts himself as among the lucky few in the class that were unaffected by the outage. He was spared by the Sudoku game he had pre-installed on his computer. Michaels says he was “super relieved”, commenting that 45 minutes of unadulterated focus on Professor Trentos, the award-winning Economics author and researcher, would have been “literally horrible.”
