Points in Case is a comedy publication featuring enlightening and irreverent humor geared toward college students and post-grads. Our articles are thoroughly edited and completely uncensored, because anything less would be unprofessional and anything more would be too civilized.
Points in Case began in September 1999 as a college humor column posted in the dorm bathrooms of Emory University. From there, it became an email column sent out monthly and passed around the nation during the fervent forwarding days of the late 90's. In December 2000, the issues of the original Points in Case column were posted online, along with the dumb-funniest quotes submitted by college students everywhere. In May 2003, the first five columnists began writing for the site.
Today, Points in Case showcases all kinds of comedy, including funny guides and lists, satire and parodies, college and observational humor, and personal essays in our articles, columns, blogs and quotes to over half a million readers a month. We are also a founding member of Break Media, the single largest creator and distributor of male-targeted content online (and the largest humor site, Break.com), reaching an audience of 200 million people through video and editorial content. But we couldn't have done it without super-talented comedy writers and enthusiastic commenters and contributors like you.
Our number one goal is to make you laugh. If that also means curing your boredom, helping you procrastinate, or spurring your imagination, then so be it. You'll find that we are mostly comedic, somewhat sophomoric, often sarcastic, and always strangely insightful or inexplicably delightful. We hope to have you around for many articles to come!

Assorted PIC Tidbits
Points in Case was so named because the phrase "case in point" seems like it should be reversed for proper meaning (see "Case in Point vs. Point in Case"), and because of the observational humor tone of the original Points in Case column (i.e. here are some points to consider in case this happens to you).
Every article and column contains 3-6 hand-picked phrases that are linked to other relevant articles on the site, essentially turning Points in Case into one big maze of comedy goodness. Feel free to get lost in us.
