It was an election that, let’s face it, we all probably could’ve called. Last week, ever-hating local blog The D.C. Shitlist created a poll, asking its readers which D.C. school educates the most obnoxious bunch of young scholars. The results are in, and guess what, Hoyas: It’s us.
Not only that, but it’s overwhelmingly us. Of the 346 votes cast by Shitlist readers, Georgetown received a whopping 216. And while there’s a good chance that at least 50 of those were cast by the various aliases of Steven R. Brown, we can’t ignore that a good number of D.C.-ers still think we’re more annoying than our peers.
And, to add insult to injury, the blog also lists the ways by which we’ve been able to add this to our fine University’s list of accomplishments. Apparently, we “believe all of D.C. resides on M Street,” and engage in “occasional primal cheers of ‘Hoya Saxa’ when intoxicated.” The first we can take issue with, but let’s admit it, we do love us some drunken, celebratory chanting.
But don’t fret, annoying students of Georgetown. Despite our status as the most irritating, Shitlist insists that they “love having all of these universities in the District, and believe having them here contributes a great deal to D.C.”
And hey, if you think we’re annoying now, just wait until we get in on the new Brooks Brothers Collegiate Collection.
