In ‘How Many Kropogs to Cape Cod?‘, we learn about Kropogs, so I thought I’d tell you more! A Kropog was a unit of distance specifically made up for Gilmore Girls. You might think, like with many other things, that it was a pop culture reference to something real. This time, however, it is not! The writers of Gilmore Girls made up a 1944 Yale alumni, Maxwell Kropog, who was said to be the originator of this unit of distance – it was based on his short height.
Trivia question: how many Kropogs is it from Rory’s dorm to Logan’s dorm?
