History

The Beginning

The Georgetown Heckler was founded as The Georgetown Lampoon by a group of friends at Georgetown in January 2003, under Editor-in-Chief Justin Droms. The Lampoon was created as an online humor magazine located at georgetownlampoon.com. The publication quickly became popular with students. After eight issues, the semester ended, and the senior founders, including Droms, graduated. 2003: January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December A timeline of events in the news for January, 2003. ...

The McGrane Years

After the graduation of the first editor-in-chief, Droms, Madeline McGrane was named his successor. McGrane led the Heckler in its second and third years (Fall 2003 - Spring 2005). This was the period of perhaps the greatest prominence for the publication, and was certainly the most prolific period. The Lampoon (later the Heckler) continued its popularity with the campus population and released nineteen issues.[2] 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Wearing Your Collar Down is for Poor People

The satirical opinion article Wearing Your Collar Down is for Poor People appeared in the February 2004 issue of the Lampoon, said to be written by I.M. Adick, III (it has been a tradition at the magazine for writers to use pseudonyms in article bylines). It is a biting caricature of college students from wealthy families who flaunt the status symbol of the "popped collar." It has become the publication's most popular article, being featured on Collegehumor.com and raising debate at elite U.S. universities.[1] "The collar article" was even plagiarized in an edition of The Penn, a publication at the University of Pennsylvania.[2] The article can be found here. 2004 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December- → // February 29, 2004 Jean-Bertrand Aristide resigns as president of Haiti and flees the country for the Central African Republic. ...

Dispute with the Harvard Lampoon

With the national publicity of Wearing Your Collar Down is for Poor People, The Georgetown Lampoon caught the attention of the Harvard Lampoon. In June 2004, Tyler Chapman, the lawyer for the Harvard Lampoon, demanded that The Georgetown Lampoon "cease and desist" from using the name "Lampoon," which is trademarked by the Harvard Lampoon, and threatened to sue. The Georgetown Lampoon complied. “Since the Heckler's assets total about $3 … We didn't really have any other option but to comply,” Justin Droms said at the time. After a request of the staff for submissions on a new name for their publication, The Georgetown Heckler was chosen, suggested by writer Andrew Leahy. The name was “actually much more fitting,” according to Droms.[3] The renamed magazine responded with an article under the headline Harvard to Sue Georgetown for Use of Word "University".[3] 2004 : January - February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December See also: June 2004 in sports Deaths in June • 28 Anthony Buckeridge • 26 Naomi Shemer • 26 Yash Johar • 22 Bob Bemer • 22 Thomas Gold • 22 Francisco Ortiz Franco • 16 Thanom Kittikachorn • 10 Ray Charles • 5 Ronald Reagan...

Decline and Rebirth

After McGrane's graduation in 2005, Mike Vipond took the reigns of The Georgetown Heckler. After the release of eleven issues in the third year, the fourth year saw a sharp decline, seeing the release of only three issues, put together by just a couple of writers.[4] After Vipond graduated, Jonathan Rapoport became editor-in-chief for the Heckler's fifth year. The fifth year brought four issues, including the release of the magazine's first print issue in April 2007. More issues are planned for this sixth year, including print issues[5], and The Georgetown Heckler saw the first major redesign of its website in May 2007. 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...
