The latest GQ lists out America's 25 Douchiest Colleges this past issue and it really is hysterical. But for some God-known reason they threw in Yeshiva University as an honorable mention for “HOME OF: The Excessive-School-Pride Douche”
Excuse me? Excessive school pride? Is this a joke? If it is, it is briliant. If it is serious, GQ has completely missed the ball on defining the Yeshiva University douche.
I mean don't get me wrong here, I can personally go through dozens, if not hundreds of complete douches who graduated with a Yeshiva U. BS degree (and I dont mean Bachelor's of Science here) you know who they are…conceited as all hell (religious ones included here) consistently unfriendly, probably work at some BS hedge-fund/company their father-in-law owns and undoubtably pronounce the word Finance, fiNAHNCE. They are douches, they have the clothes, the prick attitude, the refined midos of a complete schmuck. But yet no YU douch has ever had school pride, let alone excessive school pride. I mean real school pride – goyish style – involves a football team, bumper stickers, a basketball coach, a consistent NCAA tournament bracket spot, way too many body painted frat boys, blonde cheerleaders and a lot of overworn sweatshirts…or it needs to be Ivy league, it needs involve a sick SAT Score, an emblem imprinted on every tshirt worn by the alumnist, his kids and distant relatives from ages 24-95 and an associated “club” someplace in New York City. It requires, at the very least, to be effortlessly/consistently dropped in virtually every conversation/job interview/date/comment-about-the-weather the alumnist has, and it must be the first and only choice of schools for his/her kids.
Honorable mention or not, no one in the history of the world has ever bragged about going to Yeshiva University. Ever.
GQ needs to get their douches sorted out – fast; otherwise, chas vchalilah, readers might consider YU a goyishe douch school with an actual football team! Nebech on Klal Yisroel.
