I’m 25 Years Old And Yes, My Mom Still Schedules My Dick Appointments

Yes, I know what you’re thinking: I’m 25 years old, I have a full-time job, a 401k for God’s sake, and I’m just yet another millennial that still has their mother book their dick appointments for them. It’s so embarrassing, but it’s the one part of “adulting” that I haven’t gotten in the habit of doing on my own just yet! I think one of the reasons why I don’t schedule my dick appointments myself is because I’m a busy woman. Between work, exercising, and keeping up with an active social life, y

Baby Names Mary And God Considered Before Settling On “Jesus Christ”

For all new parents, choosing a name for their newborn is one of the toughest tasks. Little do people know, even Mary and the Lord himself mulled over many names before deciding on ‘Jesus Christ’ for the Son of God after one of their favorite musicals, “Jesus Christ Superstar.” See the list of names Mary and God were deciding on before the Light of the World was born. 1.) God 2: Little known fact: if God wasn’t the Lord Almighty, he would have liked to be a big shot movie executive, so like the

5 Self-Care Remedies For Your Distressed Jeans

You think you’re stressed? Your jeans are literally distressed. For all they do for you, indulge your distressed jeans with a few of these self-care home remedies that will lift the spirits of any type of jeans, no matter how ripped, patched up, and trendy they are. 1.) Stretch them out at yoga class.

Jesus Beginning To Feel Like Third Wheel Lodged Between Two Grinding Tweens at Middle School Dance

Jesus Beginning To Feel Like Third Wheel Lodged Between Two Grinding Tweens at Middle School Dance Numerous claims coming out of Holy Cross Catholic Middle School report that unfortunately, Jesus Christ is starting to feel a little bit like a third wheel after local horndogs Sarah Bunker and Mark Austings were scolded to have the Son of God “join them” in the five-inch space that separated Austings’ Nike sport polo from Bunker’s triumphantly-trying A-cups at the Holy Cross Catholic Middle Schoo

Point/Counterpoint: Ohio Corn Is Better Than Indiana Corn, And Therefore, Our Boys Are Better At Football Than Them

Since stupid Penn State gave Ohio State a run for its money last weekend, we’re all hoping and praying that this weekend against Indiana goes more smoothly. Considering the fact that Ohio corn is totally better than Indiana corn, we at The Black Sheep are pretty sure that that automatically makes us better at football too. Right? Let’s look at the facts. Point: According to statistics, Ohio corn tends to have a 47% higher kernel count than Indiana corn. What does this have to do with football

Following 5-Year Suspension, AEPi Excited to Welcome Recently Bar Mitzvahed 7th Grader

Jacob Goldberg, a current seventh-grader who just got bar mitzvahed this past weekend, is looking forward to being the next pledge in Alpha Epsilon Pi at The Ohio State University after the fraternity, along with Sigma Alpha Mu, was recently placed on a five-year suspension by the university, and will not be allowed back on campus until 2023. While the historically Jewish fraternity will no longer be able to recruit new members, Goldberg believes he is a good candidate for AEPi’s next pledge cl

Brutus is a Manwhore

On campus, bumping into Brutus the Buckeye is an immediate mood booster. He’s our mascot, buddy, and motivator. Overall, he’s the epitome of a team player. But one thing that many Ohio State students don’t know, is that Brutus is a leading player on an entirely different field as well. At the age of 50, Brutus Buckeye…is a manwhore. In light of this news, several hundred people came out Sunday night to meet in the Shoe for a support group of all of those who were screwed over by Brutus Buckeye.
