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.”
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.
Do you love drinking games (done
right)? Do you enjoy making fun of mainstream television? Do you absolutely hate Bentley?
If you answered yes to any one of these questions, then shake off that case of the Mondays and keep reading. A new episode of The Bachelorette is on tonight, and we’ve come up with a few ways to make it

For a humbling, historic moment, Penn students sure are, well… here are some tweets.
If you haven’t messed around with yes.thatcan.be, the website that takes bits and pieces from your tweets to create beauty, consider this our distraction gift of the day. See if your tweets can end up rhyming like ours.
According to, um, all the tweets, @diggy_simmons, son of “Rev Run” and rap artist, is performing here January 2nd. So we didn’t actually bring ourselves all this fame. A 15-year-old rapper did. And no one will actually be here for his show. Cool, social media!
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. Don’t miss our new section, “Tweets That Speak For Themselves!”
Finally, people have stopped tweeting about #upenn #graduation #2010 (it’s those same damn grandmas who figured out Facebook), allowing us to bring you a new heap of tweets. Behold, the summer thoughts of Penn’s lovers, haters, and people who maybe shouldn’t be allowed to use the internet.
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!
