Cry-Bankers, Yale Bashing, and a Naked Guy, Oh My!
Fall ’08 in Retrospect

grinchHere’s wishing happy holidays and long winter breaks to our readers, especially to those poor souls who attend Harvard and Princeton, where fall semester final exams occur after winter vacation. Nassau and Massachusetts Halls: Thou art a Grinch.

We’ll be back on January 5. Until then, how about some premature nostalgia and self-reference? This year saw our redesign and tech upgrade at the hands of nimble-fingered Tech God Zach Ozer, to whom we are constantly indebted. Also, the addition of several new writers and editors, all of whom are obscenely talented and frighteningly dedicated to this wretched little blog. They created the following Top 10 Fall ’08 stories, listed here by pageview:

The rest of the top 10 + assorted tidbits, time-wasters, and arbitrary “Best Of” designations:

Two old stories crept into this year’s top 10: Lena Chen and the Case of the Naughty Nudie Pics is not only our most-viewed story of all time, but technically this semester’s #2, with 12,000 views. Kitchen Sex Is the New Shower Sex clocked just under 7,000 views despite being so old, Nick Summers wrote it. Vintage!

As for comments, our brief foray into the world of registered commenting succeeded/failed miserably, depending on your perspective. The semester’s most-commented:

A few other gems, handpicked by the editor:

The two funniest videos of the year just so happened to be the funniest anti-Yale videos ever created (unless you count the Bush family’s entire televised existence). Your move, Yale. Where’s that Drama School when you need it, anyway?

Answer: Helming the greatest school musical of our time.
