Stanford Called One of the "Douchiest Colleges"



    Stanford's band has plenty of reasons to celebrate.

    "Douche" can literally refer to something dirty or not so literally as a university full of a "brainless" individuals.

    A new book by H. L. Rogers and Peter Littleton, Ph.D. -- somehow we are doubting their Pd.D. credentials -- ranks the "douchiest colleges in America."

    Now thanks to our friends at GQ, we get a sneak peak of the top ten douchiest schools in the country from "The Rogers & Littleton Guide to America's Douchiest Colleges."

    And like any good top ten list, the Bay Area is well represented.

    Making the cut as the No. 4 douchiest college in the country is none other than our very own Stanford.

    Andrew Luck aside, the school is called the home of the "it's not actually a network, it's more of a cloud" douche.

    The book says the school's core belief is "you are above California, even though you do love the weather."

    It goes on to explain the farm's "douchey affectations":

    Because you can't be bothered with "fashion," you wear old Gap jeans, Havaianas flip-flops, a T-shirt with the name of an obscure tech company that ends in a y—Blippy or Swipely or Smackly or Webbly—underneath a Stanford sweatshirt. You have 17,000 Facebook friends, some of whom you've met before, and you plan on starting a company and getting filthy rich someday so that later you can "do good." But, you know, first you have to get filthy rich.

    The No. 1 douchiest school turned out to be Cornell because not even Stanford pretends to be a "fake Ivy League" campus.
