TwitPenn: Not Penn State Edition


So you know how every time something’s in the news, comedians try to poke fun at it? Sometimes they’re successful, and sometimes this happens:

@billmaher: I used to confuse U Penn and #PennState, now I have it: U Penn is private, PennState is where u can anally rape ten year old boys
But Donald Trump Jr., reppin’ Penn, replied to Maher and said what most were thinking:
@DonaldJTrumpJr: Yea I used to think our “Not Penn State” t-shirts were obnoxious… Now, not so much RT @billmaher I used to confuse U Penn & #PennState
Do you have thoughts on Maher’s tweet?  Tell us in the comments!

People Being Sued By People Who Went To Penn: Herman Cain

Last year we wrote about Gloria Allred, hotshot celebrity attorney who went to Penn. Well, she’s back in the news because she’s involved in a sexual harassment lawsuit against GOP front-runner Herman Cain.

While our friends across the state are dealing with their own scandal, Allred’s stirring things up in Penn’s waters. Her client claims that Cain “suddenly reached over and he put his hand on my leg under my skirt.” Cain’s response is that “the Democrat machine in America has brought forth a troubled woman to make false accusations,” and his withdrawal from the presidential race “ain’t gonna happen.”

While all of this legal stuff sorts itself out, we’re left to speculate about the real reason for Allred’s suit against Cain: she’s clearing the way for Penn’s finest to make it to the top.

TwitPenn: Trump-Huntsman Showdown Edition

This week has been filled with a war between two Penn alumni.  It all started this Monday, September 26, when a spokesman for Jon Huntsman tweeted:

@Timodc: Hoping Romney wins the Trump endorsement today. Birtherism, trade wars, & helicoptering to press conferences really resonate in NH.

TwitPenn Volume VII

Twitter may have done all sorts of weird stuff since we last posted (really, what is going on with the new layout?), but #upenn is still going strong. We’ve noticed an outpouring of hate towards our parties, some really obvious observations, and a lot of stuff we straight up don’t get.

O-Penn-Book

Everyone knows Penn prefers Scrabble to Minesweeper scores, but will accept FreeCell if you play with at least two colors.

It’s like TwitPenn, but with weird people on Facebook! Thanks to the help of Openbook, we can see what people are saying about our school in their statuses. Totally creepy, but totally fun.

While most this week were full of graduation plans, we did manage to find a few gems amongst the proud parents on Philly pilgrimages. Check ‘em after the jump!
