Imitation is the Greatest Form of Flattery

In hindsight, we should have seen this coming.

When Pinhead Nation began to grow from a fad to the pop culture icon that it is today, it was just a matter of time before an inferior knock-off came down the pike. Like "New Coke" and all the "Survivor" rip-offs, it was not a surprise that someone is attempting to copy the Utopian, but exclusionary, brotherhood that is the 'Nation.

I bring you a group who call themselves "BU-Nit". The best I can tell, this group consists of four or five low-class Boston University students who have gone out of their way to emulate Pinhead Nation. In between taking turns giving eachother "high sticks in the crease" and giving themselves a good grab to a 1978 photo of a plaid-jacketed Jack Parker, these "male friends" do their part to enrage or ridicule the greatest institution on the face of the Earth, Boston College.

As always, it's great to be an original, not a cheap carbon copy consisting of uneducated hooligans who, because of low S.A.T. scores, find themselves attending classes at the dirty end of Commonwealth Avenue and preparing for a career in the fast food industry. What can I say, although I do feel that some Boston University alumni can beat the odds and go on to live normal and quasi-successful lives, most, will simply take jobs requiring them to wear name tags or begin a work interaction with the phrase "Can I help you?"

If any of these BU-Nit(wits) want to do something meaningful, they are welcome to come to Pinhead Nation Headquarters and sweep our floors or answer the phones...

ps- It's the holiday season, so don't forget to pick up one of these for a special friend who had his heart broken last October.

First, we are not BU-Nit. It is BUnit. Secondly, BC sucks. Thirdly, you mention that we are imitating you - I can only assure you there is nothing further from the truth. Why imitate a bunch of Continental Tire Bowl attendees (I know I'd rather be at the Motor City Bowl than a bowl sponsored by a tire)? Speaking of a lack of originality, some loser on the USCHO messageboard first referred to us as the BUnitwits. He was from UNH. Not only is Pinhead nation uncreative, but they also copy off of "hillbillies" from New Hampshire. Now that's something to be proud of.

Also, one of the founding fathers of BUnit is from Connecticut - the state with the highest average IQ in the country. This information makes you look really stupid.

That's right - you can't spell Bad Hockey without BC.
