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.
