This fire hydrant gives a whole new meaning to “bra burning.” After what we presume must have been a pretty steamy night of second base under the stars, the evidence remains for the public to see. Speaking of (36-)Cs, head out to Hamilton Walk to retrieve your lost-and-found before your parents do!
Climb down from that blue ivy tower and start jumpin’ (jumpin’) because studying for art history just got a whole lot more exciting.
2012 College grad Leigh Silver has combined one thing we love to hate and another we hate to love: studying and Beyoncé. The former English major who currently works at HuffPo crafted a new website, BeyonceArtHistory, that mashes up lyrics from Beyoncé songs with Van Gogh paintings of (Sasha) fierce women.
Sure, the meme craze is kinda over, but Silver’s fusion of Art + Queen B is convincing us that she runs the world.
Now, before you ring the alarm and fall crazy in love with the site, know that your study time is irreplaceable. Checking out Mrs. Carter in Rennaisance-chic might make you fall dangerously in love all over again!
Free Coffee -- Just like every other semester during finals, Bridge Cafe in Huntsman is giving away free cups o' Joe from 9PM-12AM, starting TONIGHT! Seniors, these may be the last dining dollars you ever spend!
The wee hours of the morning in Huntsman Hall may trick your brain into seeing a mirage, but this is one possibly-Photoshopped image that you won’t be able to get out of your head: a naked woman standing on the Forum steps.
If you’re thinking this must be a money-making scheme, you’re not so far from the truth. Senior in the Huntsman Program Sarah Meyohas launched a website tonight, businessnude, to sell postcards with NSFW (Not Safe For Wharton) photos of classmate Danielle Swanner posing nude in JMHH.
Each souvenir is yours for only $5 (or $15 for the whole collection), assuming you gain access to the password-protected site (hint: getnaked).
Between spamming listservs, changing her cover photo, and posting in the Class of 2013 Facebook group, Sarah is trying to go viral. In her words, “The project is about distribution, its currency as image, especially material.” Huh?
We’re sort of speechless. All we have to say Sarah (and Danielle) is…add us on Snapchat?
Free Ben & Jerry's
-- If you couldn't bear the thought of waiting in line last week
, here's your chance to get free ice cream (REPEAT: FREE ICE CREAM), courtesy of Hillel. What's the occasion? Israel's 65th birthday! Go to College Green at 11am: it's never too early for a Late Night Snack
I pledge allegiance…to the band…of Mr. Kweder–or so he hopes.
Kenn Kweder is the latest to jump on the crowdfunding bandwagon, trying to raise money Kickstarter-style to make a documentary about his life.
“An icon” and “a pioneer” in the Philly music scene (according to his website), but more accurately a cross between Mr. Schneebly and a fratty Bruce Springsteen, Kweder is looking for your support. A 5 dollar donation buys you exclusive production updates while they shoot the film. 50 bucks gets you a digital copy of the film. $1000 earns you a private house concert.
Let’s rock today!
There are always a few of you each year–the select bunch who haven’t mastered the art of drunk blogging for Writing Seminar. While the rest of campus is praying to the gods of Pong and Porcelain, you’re holed up in a Huntsman GSR…which is why we present you with:
The Anti-Flinger’s Guide to Fling
1. Start your Fling Friday in the VP Stacks, where we’re sure an Independent Study (if you know what we mean) won’t do it for ya. Booty call a friend, describing your location with the Dewey Decimal System.
2. How desperate is too desperate, you ask? Rising freshmen are fair game. 11th-graders are a no-go–unless they’ve broken a 2100.
3. On the off-chance you start to envy red cups and the people who hold them, remind yourself that you are classy. Take swigs from the bottle of Poland Spring (without the label, of course) that you snuck into the library, cringing with each swallow. Remind yourself that it’s only water.

According to current forecasts, Tyga may have his way. Things aren’t looking pretty for Fling weekend, with a 70% chance of rain for Friday (and that nasty 14MPH wind to the northeast). Don’t fret! You can camp all day inside a Freshman’s room in the Quad…unless, of course, you happen to be a Freshman.
In case none of your Facebook friends go to Penn, or if you’re just colorblind and thought that campus has been unusually dusty lately, then we suggest you get into the Holi-day spirit! After Saturday’s cross between a paint party and color war, we have one casualty: our beloved Button.
The glowstick explosion over campus was cause yesterday for a scrubdown of our namesake, restoring it to its *virginal* alabaster.
Want a free coffee every day (EVERY DAY) until the end of the semester?
That’s the prize for winning Williams Cafe’s coffee concoction contest, running through Sunday. Submit your original idea for a coffee–all syrups, hazelnut shavings, and spices are fair game–on Facebook, Twitter, or in person, and the best cup will win a place on the menu (and a helluva lotta caffeine!).
We’re not Joe-king about this one!
