I am a grad student in the sociology PhD program at UC Davis. I share an office with a few other grad students and we like to laugh and joke around. One day I started putting up a “Bad Joke of the Week” on the dry erase board on the wall, which eventually evolved into this blog because I wanted to save my jokes every week and also have more to work with, like pictures, both of which you can’t really do on a white board.
I know these jokes are very esoteric and I know they are really cheesy. I am OK with that. Humor has been a powerful weapon (and activism of course!) for dealing with much of the bullshit that is grad school (and the UC system… my first quarter was this.)
I haven’t touched this site in two years… but I started another blog with my more political and UC activism based thoughts.(Check it out if that sounds interesting to you.)
