39 Signs You’re The Chapter Clown


There’s no greater feeling than laughing, except making other people laugh. Seriously, it’s addicting. There’s a thrill you get from making other people laugh so hard, they double over. Your sorority is made up of a ton of different girls who are all amazing in their own way, but you’re known as “the funny one.” You’re loud, sometimes obnoxious, and you can make an entire room crack up during a serious ritual. These are some other signs that you’re the chapter clown:

  1. You are one of the first names that the new members know.
  2. Not just because you are funny, but you are the least intimidating.
  3. Even when you try to be intimidating, everyone still laughs at whatever you say.
  4. The chapter won’t let you hold any leadership position besides “Joke Chair.”
  5. And even then, they’re a little concerned.
  6. You are always volunteered to participate in sweetheart competitions or any event that involves a stage.
  7. You are in a domestic partnership with your best friend on Facebook.
  8. Sisters’ family members know who you are.
  9. Some have even come up to you to introduce themselves and “put a face to the name.”
  10. Your Halloween costume is a pun or an elaborate recreation of your favorite, and most likely unsexy, TV character.
  11. Similarly, your themed social outfits are elaborate and accurate with no emphasis on cuteness.
  12. People document moments when they make you laugh.
  13. You can eat a whole pizza in one sitting.
  14. Because somehow humor and hunger go hand in hand.
  15. People look forward to your comments on the chapter’s Facebook page.
  16. As soon as you stop smiling for a second, someone asks you if you are okay.
  17. Your friends’ favorite past time is embarrassing you.
  18. But you take it like a champ.
  19. You’re no pussy, after all.
  20. You can get away with doing ridiculous shit just because you’re you.
  21. Like sing an entire ritual song with a lisp.
  22. Or give gruesome details about the last trip you took to the bathroom.
  23. Or bringing snacks in your pockets to a pregame.
  24. You’re either chronically single or dating another chapter’s “funny guy.”
  25. Because other guys just can’t keep up with you.
  26. They love you, but they’re not “in love” with you.
  27. Oh well. Their loss.
  28. You are a bitch to people’s face and they assume you are kidding.
  29. You’re not.
  30. You are known for your unflattering snapchats.
  31. That you shamelessly post to your story.
  32. If you go missing during the night, no one looks for you because they assume you’ll wander back eventually.
  33. You don’t like being serious, even when you’re supposed to.
  34. So you try and think of the funniest thing to say in the most unfunny situations.
  35. It doesn’t always work out well.
  36. You’re the best storyteller, and all your friends look forward to your retelling of their weekend debauchery.
  37. You consistently win superlatives your mom would not be proud of.
  38. You say more inappropriate things than appropriate things.
  39. You don’t have to worry about what you look like, because you’ll always just be “the funny girl.” But that’s alright by you.
