The Rogers & Littleton Guide to America's Douchiest Colleges Paperback – July 20, 2011
Top Customer Reviews
Excellent (I didn't say "superb"). But you can't give five stars to authors whose objectives were so easily attained.
From "Squad Drill," Sgt. Mickey Sullivan's Civil War memoir: "Wallschlaeger & Thomas proved to be good soldiers... [but Thomas]... 'couldn't shoot & hit a barn if he was within it..."
Rogers & Littleton were inside the barn & "couldn't miss."
Oh really? Bink! Went the first half of the 5th Star. The Bard College satire commits the cardinal sin of comedy - it's as boring & sterile as the self-righteous drones that infest the campus!
The focus of the piece should have been the complete destruction of the campus's original beauty after Fisher-Soros had given them millions of dollars, subsequently squandered on the construction of indescribably hideous buildings (blueprints of which were created at Fisher-Price).
Why not mention the typical visiting 50 year-old father of a student, parading along on Stone Row Boulevard (elevation 250 feet above sea level) who's conscientiously informing the entire campus of his incomparable significance, via a 93-decibel cel-phone conversation?
But no. Some schlub on a unicycle in front of the Richard M. Nixon Memorial Library (not even a Bard student - he got lost coming south from Albany on the Taconic!) - got the ink & the snap.
More time was wasted satirizing Steely Dan for being "soulless." This is like trying to make fun of Eddie Murphy because you think he's a WASP.
Another half-star was lost due to an innocent but unpardonable oversight - the infamous Mark Gerard was not listed as a Cornell graduate. Come on. guys - read the obituaries once in a while!Read more ›

the douchiest is a scream! it totally takes the pretense out of pretensiuos colleges. This has to be read by entering freshmen and the new poor who are paying their tuition.Published on August 23, 2011 by gorlaw
I just graduated from one of the colleges listed in this book and there are tons of ways to make fun of my school, but this book totally ignores those and actually made things up. Read morePublished on August 3, 2011 by twizzler
