Caterpillar Rejects Becoming Beautiful Butterfly, Chooses to Die in Hill Cereal Bowl

In case the image isn’t quite clear, THIS IS A CATERPILLAR THAT WAS  FOUND LITERALLY IN THE FOOD AT HILL. It’s been a long time since first grade, but we don’t  remember our teachers saying that a chrysalis is often best constructed from tuna noodle casserole. Will this tasty lil’ larva ever become a beautiful butterfly? Unclear. But all we can do besides never set foot in Hill again for the rest of our lives is hope for the best. Godspeed, insect friend, godspeed.

Worst and Best of Fling Tanks 2k14

Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 8.54.46 PM

For those of you too drunk to remember, there were a plethora of Fling tanks this year, as always. Some were actually amusing. Some were unpleasantly boring. Some were desperately unclever. We get it, you wanted to stand out, and for better or worse, we noticed you. So accept our awards and comments with honor and pride, or remorse and defeat, we don’t know your life. Firstly…

NYT Declares Penn Super Relevant

Screen shot 2014-04-16 at 3.03.36 AM

Who needs to be first place in academics or athletics when you can be first place in popularity? A recent article in the New York Times reported that the number of applications to Penn this year rose by 14.4%, the highest of all Ivies. Apps to Dartmouth decreased the most, by 14.2%. While Dean Furda attributes this newfound popularity to greater outreach efforts, we can’t help but think it’s because of the Qdoba on campus. At least this increase in apps explains the unwelcome hordes of naive tour groups invading campus every day.

Tax Day Discounts Are A Thing

It’s raining because the nation is crying that we needa pay The Man. Or your mom does. Or accountant. Even if you’re too ignorant to know it’s Tax Day, certain campus eateries are giving deals to all for this fateful financial occasion. And by eateries, we mean the above Boston Market two meal deal. And for those turned off by the strip club on Chestnut, get over it…or go for McDirty’s Big Macs, which are buy one, get one for 15 cents. There may be more out there. Sounds like it’s time to…make it rain!

Your Fling Photos Are In: Reliving Spring Fling 2K14

flingstanleyAs we collectively wallow in this rainy post-Fling Tuesday, we can only hope ya didn’t have to untag too many pictures or explain to your parents why they received a Dominos pizza delivery at 2am on Saturday (It’s a long not even a long story).

Either way, this moody weather gives us the perfect excuse to reflect on what transpired this past weekend, and there’s no better medium to do this than through the contemporary photograph. Without further ado about nothing, here’s our roundup of the Fling photos you sent us, or hashtagged with #flingstagram:

Penn Law Somehow Nominated For Webby

Webby LogoFor the second year in a row, Penn Law’s website has been nominated for a Webby, the “Internet’s highest honor” (which is a real life thing). A Webby is apparently the “leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet” and not what we imagine fans of Charlotte’s Web call themselves.  Last year, Penn Law won the People’s Voice Webby Award in the Law category so basically they are killing it. Even we have to admit, the site it pretty. Look at the colors, the scrolling columns, and the tabs- so many tabs! No wonder why they are the ONLY law school nominated in the Law Category. Penn Law, keep doing you, and if you want to support, vote here.

Chasing Amy: Philly’s CoverGirl

Yaaaaas A-Gut yaaaaas. Take a moment out of your Tuesday to adoringly gaze at Philadelphia magazine’s April 2014 cover girl, Madame President herself. The publication’s “POWER.” issue features its 75 Most Influential, and look who’s front and center! Not that we even noticed the men flanking her with her blonde locks gloriously gleaming. Justice has been served, PhillyMag – but don’t think we’ve forgotten all your past faux pas.
