So I graduated from McGill University with a B.A. in English Literature and History on June 3rd.
“I propose an actual orgy. We’ll get a hotel room near campus, some champagne, condoms, lube and make a night of it.”
It started eight months ago, with a post on the online community of /r/mcgill.
A newly created account, under the imaginative name of mcgillorgythrowaway (now deleted), made a text post asking the two thousand /r/mcgill members to join him in an orgy.
my new year's resolution is not to make any new year's resolutions so I don't hate myself

Last year, I wrote a satirical article for Leacock’s about how discriminatory Movember is.
This year, the McGill Daily published a serious article about how discriminatory Movember is.
Below, I have compiled a list of quotes–half of them are from my satire, the other half are from the serious Daily. Try and see if you can tell which are satire, and which are real.
Movember is a racist, misogynistic, ageist, geneist and militantly atheist institution that propagates a despicable supremacist ideology.
For the few of you who have yet to be contaminated by this vitriolic propaganda, Movember is an annual event that takes place every November, where men grow moustaches to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Movember fanatics, or “mo bros” as they call themselves, believe their moustaches make them superior to those without moustaches. They have created a month-long event where they can spout their hate speech, while the general population are forced to tolerate–and even support–their unabashed bigotry.
I just got my first ever e-mail for my blog address!
It’s nice to know that at least one human/sentient robot read my blog, and that you’re not all web spiders.
Also, it took me like 10 minutes to figure out to pixellate text in Photoshop.
You can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or send me a problem to be in my (not yet existing) advice column.
Since signing up for Twitter in 2008, I’ve tweeted 1936 times.
That’s 22,385 total words and 4790 unique words.
You can see a word cloud I created of my Twitter archive above. So what do I tweet about?
“It depends on what your definition of ‘controversial’ is.” – Queen Arsem-O’Malley, coordinating editor of the McGill Daily
As a responsible McGill student and a morally good human being, you try to read McGill’s various publications. That means Leacock’s, as well as theTribune, the Daily, the Bull & Bear and so on. After all, student journalism is the most effective way to keep abreast of current events and issues relevant to your school and community. Also, it’s a good way to procrastinate without feeling too guilty.
