Today’s Best Tumblr Asks: Why the Hell Does Every Bro at Duke Wear Pink Shorts?


At Duke University, a startling new phenomenon: every bro is wearing pink shorts.

They may call their pink shorts “salmon” or, better yet, they may call their pink shorts “Nantucket red,” but the fact remains. Pink shorts have overtaken the campus. Brah.

One funny Tumblr, aptly called “Why Do Duke Boys Love Pink Shorts?” recently sought to document the pink virus. The number of photos it’s been able to post in just a few days is alarming.

Seriously, has there been a fire sale at the Durham J. Crew recently? Or are these the colors for the world’s least intimidating gang? Anyway, see the whole Tumblr here.
