Welcome! You have stumbled upon New York University’s best kept secret, The Plague Magazine. We are NYU’s most beloved and sole humor magazine, and this year we’re marking 40 years in print and 100 years on the Internet. This website contains an archive of every issue of the magazine to date, and we encourage you to go through them all, dissecting every word of every issue, tracking all the ways that humor has changed over time. When you’re done, you can print out the issues and observe that all the pages form a map of The United States of America. Pretty neat!
If you’d like to submit to our magazine or say hi, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New members are always welcome, whether you’re an ambitious comedy writer currently climbing the ranks of Saturday Night Live, a energetic political speechwriter looking to humanize your resume with a college humor publication, a jock, a princess, a head case, a private investigator who’s been tipped off about what really goes on around here, a nerd, or even just an ambitious comedy writer currently climbing the ranks of Seinfeld (a show about nothing).
We meet on Mondays at 6:30 post meridiem in Rubin 110. If you’re interested in coming to a meeting just begin slipping on the trail of banana peels we have set up from your residence to our door.
