The Eggplant was founded in January 2014 by Aubrey Burrough and Houston Barber, on popular tween website Tumblr dot com. With the dedication and talent of its founders and a few more funny people, the publication became a real life website with Facebook fans and everything. Since then, The Eggplant has become one of the top college satire websites in the nation and a source of #good #content for Seminoles and - unsurprisingly - another thing for Gators to attempt to imitate. 

The publication is currently run by a team of six yellow lab puppies in a trench coat.
