Yes, this is a knock off.

Many of you may have heard of the hilarious blog-made-book Stuff White People Like. If you haven't discovered it yet, do so: http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com. The list is so accurate (for white middle class 15-30 year olds), its ridiculous. It has left several readers crying at their computers, and rolling in bookstores. These readers are both white, and not-white. Reading the material leads an individual to think of the more specific idiosyncrasies in his or her own life and culture—this being the case, it seemed only appropriate to create a blog dedicated to the strange but true things BYU kids "like". While, there are several groups and sites dedicated to the "you might be a BYU student if" motif, a blog allows for a more in depth exploration and flagrant mockery. It can also teach those not of BYU culture, how to integrate themselves into this lifestyle, and maybe even possibly, pass as a BYU student.

If you have a blog you would like 'published' on this URL (that is relevant to this blog, of course), just send an email to byukids@gmail.com. Feel free to send insults and suggestions as well, or just post them publicly.

As a disclaimer, this has been created by a current BYU student, who does not mean harm in any way. It should be viewed as friendly jest, because really, life is too important to be taken seriously.
