Best Yik Yaks Of White Out Weekend

Four years after being shut down, Yik Yak has returned. The app allows users to post anonymously and shows all other posts within a five-mile radius.

On a college campus as large as Penn State, this yields both entertaining and sometimes just plain stupid results.

With the influx of excitement and people in town for the White Out, Yik Yak was busier than ever this weekend. We compiled some of our favorite posts from the past few days.

“Damn this place really is in the middle of nowhere”

Bold statement coming from someone from *checks notes* Alabama.

“I just hope both teams have fun”

Now, this is the wholesome content that we need. I’d bet money that the Nittany Lions had fun, but I can’t speak for the Tigers…

“Beaver Stadium has me taking out mortgages for water and chicken baskets”

I hate to admit this, but I haven’t even had a chicken basket yet because I think $12 is utterly ridiculous. And just install a few water fountains, please. We’re begging.

“Hey Allison”

We’re not sure who Allison is, but hey!

“I keep setting my TV to record ‘The Biggest Loser but it only records Auburn games”

I mean, is there anything more to say?

“In search of a good Amish woman to settle down and do life with”

Hmm…If you’re visiting from Auburn, you might have a bit more luck about 100 miles east in Lancaster. Not that there are no Amish women nearby, you just would get a better selection over there.

“Where’s all the Amish Nittany Lion attire I was promised”

What is being said in the south about Penn State and the Amish?! Did they expect to show up and have to share the roads with horses and buggies and live off the land for the weekend?

“Anyone see me on the big screen? I’m the one wearing white”

I tried really hard to look for this fella, but it was like there was almost no white in the crowd on Saturday. Strange.

“Eric Barron, cancel classes on Monday, you coward.”

Everyone’s Sunday Scaries definitely carried over into Monday, and it was visible walking to my 9 a.m. organic chemistry class. Take it easy, drink lots of water, and rest up. We’ve got another one on Saturday!

“No cap PSU campus is a nice place”

Yeah, we know; we’re pretty proud of this school. Thank you for noticing. Hope you had a great time in Happy Valley, Auburn fans.
