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.

Gil Damon is majoring in Psychology and Political Science in an effort to be doubly unemployable. As our Wakulla County bureau chief, he will steer all conversations toward the Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin' Festival or that one time he chased away an alligator armed only with a mop. If you pay close attention, his breathing sounds like a cool ocean breeze, his heartbeat feels like the cascade of waves against the sand, and his eyes appear to contain a glowing sunset above a placid blue seascape.
