Big photos below.
I love CU-Boulder so much that I send most of my money there (for my daughters' tuition). But there's no doubt plenty of folks on the Interwebs feel differently. There are loads o' mean CU-Boulder jokes out there (on sites like this one and this one and this one), with consistent themes including pot, stupidity and the ineptitude of the football team. We've collected and photo-illustrated ten of the most memorable. Will they amuse you or piss you off? Depends on where you got that diploma.

Number 10: Weed gets in the way

Q: What do the University of Colorado and pot have in common?

A: They both get smoked in bowls!

Number 9: Bad hygiene explained

An accountant, a lawyer, and a cowboy were standing side-by-side using the urinal. The accountant finished, zipped up and started washing and literally scrubbing his hands... clear up to his elbows... he used about twenty paper towels before he finished. He turned to the other two men and commented, "I graduated from the University of Michigan, and they taught us to be clean."

The lawyer finished, zipped up and quickly wet the tips of his fingers, grabbed one paper
towel and commented, "I graduated from the University of Colorado, and they taught us to be environmentally conscious."

The cowboy zipped up and as he was walking out the door said, "I graduated from the
University of Nebraska, and they taught us not to piss on our hands."

That Nebraska one actually made me laugh... Kinda like Nebraska does! :-P


I agree with Utligirl. I have been nothing but impressed with the caliber of the academics at Boulder, the intelligence of the students that go there, and the impressive research that is being conducted. And I chose it for graduate work over the University of Minnesota and University of Washington. Sure, there are some airheads, but that's not unique to Boulder. You can find dummies any where you go.

The saddest joke is to borrow $200k to get your gender studies degree only to realize no one wants to hire your clueless butt.

How many did you hump on your way to an A ?


The bowl ones are awesome but the academic ones are clearly bad re-writes. Say what you want about Boulder athletics; the academics are some of the best in the state. They have some mighty fine TAs up there.
