College Hoodie Season

We didn’t have any content ready for our usual Wednesday slot, so our good friend James Deegler offered to step up and write something for us. He last guest hosted the site in 2013. Take it away, James!

I love the Fall for its cool weather, as it allows me to break out my extensive collection of college hoodies. Now, I’ve never actually attended college. In fact, I’ve never left the city of Philadelphia. I managed to amass this collection courtesy of my Uncle Chuck, who would always send me these little gifts from his work trips. He was a university development consultant, and he’d never leave a campus without popping a hoodie and a note about the school to me in the mail.

As a tribute to him, I thought I’d share some of my favorites from the collection:


From Orgasm University. Purchased in July 2006.


From Asshole U. Purchased September 2009.


From Illuminati State University. Purchased earlier this year, shortly before his sudden and unexpected demise.


From Douche Community College. Purchased in August 2012.


From Virgin Christian University. (Fun fact: this is his ex-wife Aunt MaryAnne’s alma mater.) Purchased in December 2004.


From the University of No Homo. Purchased in April 2010.

If you see me walking the streets in one of these hoodies, feel free to give me a honk and a wave. It’s what Uncle Chuck would’ve wanted. That, and a drink.
