We’ll take a page out of the Brotherhoods’ favorite piece of art, Animal House:
Otter: Flounder, I am appointing you pledge representative to the social committee.
Flounder: Gee Otter, thanks. What do I have to do?
Otter: It means you have to drive us to the Food King.
As the winter cold-streak fades away, we remember just how much of a role the weather plays in pledgeship. The spring pledge class has one overwhelming advantage: Spring Break. Taking a week off is a blessing. I don’t care if you go skiing, on a cruise, or get laid every single night on Spring Break. No matter what, you won’t enjoy your spring break as much as a spring pledge will. It’s peace, quiet and a week of lovely nothingness. It’s impossible to appreciate unless you’ve experienced it.
It’s not hazing. It’s brotherhood.
