Fartlog



This is an absolutely hilarious parody of dartlog. I got it from Joe who got it from Julia. I really want to know who writes this "fartlog," and you will too. Here's a sample post of the top-notch satire that awaits:

Dartmouth Was Better in the 1930s By Virtue of Being in the 1930s

There's just something so charming about Dartmouth in the 1930s, that makes it so much better than the Dartmouth of the beginning of the 21st century.

First of all, there were only men, and there were very few automobiles and buses, so transportation from Hanover was difficult. This was better than it is today because it was old-fashioned and traditional.

Secondly, all of the men wore suit-jackets. This added a very aristocratic flair to the campus that was pleasing and nice.

Thirdly, there were only white people. This handled all of the problems of discrimination, because there were no non-white people to be discriminated against.

Fourthly, all of the men smoked cigars, drank port, and talked about cribbage and croquet.

Fifthly, football was played with real leather-style footballs.

Sixthly, Indians, with their big silly headdresses and animal savagery, were our mascots.

And lastly, everything was in black and white. I deal with things much better when they're black and white. That's why I work so hard to bring back all of the great things about the Dartmouth That Used To Be, the way it was when my great-grandfather Theodore Herbert Dexterhouse was on the Board of Trustees.

  1. Aaron Schlosser '07 is the creator, as discussed on Dartlog.

    He is also author of "Locke's Natural Right to Property
    A Critique"
    on Anti-State.com: Market Anarchism Online, and some Free Press articles, and he was the valedictorian of his class at Proctor Academy, which looks like a pretty ridiculous school.
