NYU Students Are Mocking Goldman Sachs Interns on Yik Yak
New York Magazine ^ | 6/9 | Kevin Roose

Posted on 06/09/2014 5:43:43 PM PDT by nickcarraway

I'm too old to understand Yik Yak, the anonymous sharing app that is taking over (and ruining) high school and college campuses. But students at NYU seem to have found a novel use for it: making fun of fellow students who are interning at Goldman Sachs this summer.

In the past few days, Yik Yak posts on the NYU network have included lots of "GS intern" jokes. Internships at Goldman are notoriously hard to get — only 2 percent of applicants are accepted — but you wouldn't know that from the anonymous humorists of NYU, who have turned Goldman intern mockery into a meme.

What's mockable about Goldman interns, you ask? Maybe their fashion sense.

NYU sux...but so does Goldman.

This is the pot calling the kettle black.

Oh noes, not black...African-American or dark versus light...or thick versus thin or...I give up to the American purveyors of political correctness.

They control the language and my thoughts.

In the end, "FU" mind controllers...I would rather die than give in to you.

Yik yak is more bathroom wall graffiti stuff for socially inept callow youth.

However, I would like to see FR have ‘like’ or ‘recommend’ or ‘vote up’ buttons for posts added to its venerable design, especially as I would like to +1 your post.

Yes, but we are talking of interns here, not partners. Go tell Wal-Mart workers how many billions of dollars the various members of the Walton family makes and see how much better that makes them feel.

Why would anybody want to wear socks with sandals?
