February 27 – March 4
The more substantive posts on BJC now have their own category, Creme de la Creme, which appears along the top menu.

That asshole Drake submitted his first column, in which he hit on an Argentinean and ran away from a cab driver. Conan called out Da Peng, and Da Peng responded in kind. Jeremy Lin got sexually defiled; did you know he shares a character in his Chinese name with rising star Chris Tang?
Wang Shu became the first Chinese to win the Pritzker Prize, China Daily wrote a cover story on art schools after Lola did the same, and a commenter named Scott posted about a dozen times on BJC. We salute you, good man.
Here are some illustrations of Red Guards doing naughty things.
