Points in Case is an online comedy publication featuring enlightening and irreverent comedy articles daily. PIC began in 1999 as a college humor column posted in the dorm bathrooms of Emory University, and grew to showcase a wide range of comedy stylings from writers everywhere. Our goal is to make you laugh; if that also means rubbing you the right way, the wrong way, and a new way, our apologies, we thought you were a genie.

PIC Timeline

2016: Celebrated Sweet 16 by unveiling a majorly redesigned site, nicknamed “PIC 3.0” by exactly 4 people.

2012: 10,000th comedy article went up, and at some point the 25 millionth reader went clicking around.

2010: 10th anniversary! Staff writers throughout the years awarded each other superlatives and wrote tribute articles.

2008: Nathan DeGraaf published The Snippets and the Impure Tour, the first book by a PIC writer, based on his “Snippets” feature.

2005: 5th Anniversary Prohibition Party was held in Atlanta, and “Anti-Chuck Norris Facts,” a response to the internet fad Chuck Norris Facts, went viral for almost a year.

2004: The first six columnists began writing weekly columns.

2003-2006: “Courtjester5000” managed to dupe millions of AIM users into thinking they were chatting with an automated messaging bot.

2003: Court Sullivan and Amir Blumenfeld were voted 3rd best IMers in America during Yahoo’s “IM Live Contest.”

2000: What’s black and white and red all over? PIC, when it first went online in December this year.

1999: The first issue of Points in Case (so named for its observational tone, and the ambiguity of the phrase “case in point“) was taped to the inside of a bathroom stall.
