Now for the less serious, parody accounts that fill my Twitter feed with hilarious nonsense. Here is where the real fun begins.

@BCCheeChees

Ah Che-Chi… the man, the myth, the legend. Who’s Che-Chi, you ask. He’s an extremely crucial part of your freshman year.  Che-Chi runs the “authentic hot Italian sausage stands” on both Upper and Lower Campus. Okay, so I’m not sure if the guy who works there is named Che-Chi, but I just assume that he is. Anyway, there were an embarrassing number of weekend nights when I went up to the stand just to chat with Che-Chi. There was actually a point when we were on a first name basis. This parody Twitter account is a very authentic representation of “Che-Chi’s” voice (I would know).  His hilarious commentary on BC students’ weekend activities is unsettlingly accurate—as you will soon find out.

@BCBiddie

I hate to encourage BC Stereotypes, but I think this account is too funny (and sometimes accurate) to ignore. The biddie, a rather interesting species, is found all over the BC campus. Get constant updates on the trials and tribulations of being a Lululemon-and-Ugg-wearing biddie.

After a few months on campus, you’ll start to notice certain problems that all BC students acknowledge. Whether you can’t deal with the disgusting-ness of the Plex or the line at Hillside that is out of hand, Boston College Problems is a great reminder that you’re not the only one dealing with these issues.
