Welcome Back, Dane Cook

Who else was mad when Dane Cook didn't get nominated for an Oscar for Employee of the Month? I wasn't mad either. When Dane Cook first stepped into the limelight, I'll admit that I thought he was funny. Then something happened. I would watch one of his specials on TV, and then the next day in class I would feel like I was watching it over and over again. Every fratty bro felt the need to repeat Dane Cook quotes over and over and over and over.

7 Ingredients for a (Ranked) Party School!

The Princeton Review recently published their rankings for the top 20 party schools in the U.S. Lots of the schools chosen also made the lists for other rankings such as "lots of beer" "jock schools" and "lots of hard liquor."

Glamour Says the Darndest Things: January Edition

January's Glamour cover claims that it's the happy issue. Coincidentally, this is one of the lightest mags I've ever picked up. I found this issue uninspired at worst, and bland at best.

Top Ten Misconceptions About Guys (By a Guy)

I’m often referred to as a “guy’s guy.” I like drinking and sports and hanging with the fellas. My third book, which is about being single when all your friends are couples, is entitled I’m Having More Fun Than You and features me on the cover with five models. This Friday, November 19th, Comedy Central is premiering my first one-hour stand-up special, AARON KARO: THE REST IS HISTORY.

Greek Speak: Frat Guys, An Insider’s Perspective

To say that frat guys don't have the best reputation is like saying that that I only kinda like Diet Coke. From movies to TV shows to their very own indiscretions (like the most recent events at Yale), on a scale of douchebaggery, they fall somewhere between Spencer Pratt and Tiger Woods.

Weekly Wrap Up: Oh August, It’s Getting Hot in Here

Wow, August has been a steamer. And it makes me so lazy. I can't do anything. And I'm not kidding. I could barely make the trek to my freezer this morning to have a struggle-fest opening the wrapper off of my fruit popsicle before I proceeded to the center of my family room, turned on the fan and spread out like a star fish on the ground.

In Defense of Bros

Yes, I know. This already seems like I’m going to be writing an article pleading with chicks to “give bros a chance, YOU DON’T KNOW THEM LIKE I DO!” etc and so forth. Or that I am a bro in disguise, infiltrating a website for the ladies to spread my bro-paganda. But I’m not either of those things. It’s true, bros are some of the most infuriating people on the planet.
