Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern
The Dartmouth Jack-O-Lantern (also known as the Jacko) is a college humor magazine, founded at Dartmouth College in 1908. The Jacko publishes print issues approximately four times a year, as well as regularly updated online content and occasional video productions. The magazine devotes one publication cycle each year to a parody of the campus newspaper, The Dartmouth. One of the magazine's oldest traditions is "Stockman's Dogs. " In the October 1934 issue, F.C. Stockman (class of 1935) drew a single-panel cartoon of two dogs talking to each other. That same cartoon has appeared in virtually every issue published since then, always with a different caption. The magazine is alluded to in the opening lines of F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story "The Lost Decade," which was first published in Esquire in 1939. Jack-O-Lantern writers Nic Duquette '04 and Chris Plehal '04 invented the unofficial Dartmouth mascot Keggy the Keg in the fall of 2003. A 2006 video prank by the Jack-O-Lantern on a Dartmouth College tour group entitled "Drinkin' Time" was featured in an article by the Chronicle of Higher Education, posted by AOL on the Online Video Blog, and was mentioned by The Volokh Conspiracy. As of December 2009, the video has garnered over 445,000 views on YouTube.
