Bashing on D.C. interns, Lady Gaga-style

Jenna Johnson

Bashing on the worst-of-the-worst interns is almost like a sport in the District. Intern screw-ups are laughed about at happy hour and documented in status updates on Facebook and Twitter. There's even a blog dedicated to the topic, Spotted: DC [Summer] Interns.

And now there's a Lady Gaga-inspired You Tube video. Set to the tune of "Alejandro," two "interns" (one in a super short skirt and blond wig, the other in khakis and a blazer with an American flag pin; both showing off their badges) sing about interns "On the Metro."

One of my favorite lines: "You're not a star. You're not a catch. No one cares about your badge. You work for free, don't brag to me. On the metro."

Campus Overload is a daily must-read for all D.C. interns. So, make sure to bookmark http://washingtonpost.com/campus-overload. You can also follow me on Twitter and fan Campus Overload on Facebook.
