Summer session is coming to a close, and the brotherhood awakens. This weekend an anonymous source filled us in on a rather unique hazing experience. While the submitter has chosen to stay behind closed doors, his story does all the talking. Coming from the University of Buffalo at an unknown fraternity, this submitted story gives slip-n-slides a newly-found shot of life.
Check out the anonymous submission below:
“I can’t tell you the frat I am in. Buffalo pledging (off campus) is known as some of the hardest shit in the country. I’ll tell you one of the more enjoyable things I had to do. It was a sunday night and all the pledges (including me) were lined up in a basement. We were all blindfolded and had no clue what house we were in. They take the blindfolds off we see a slip n’ slide. We all know some slip n slide story but this one was insane.
Anyways then a frat bro comes downstairs and is holding ketchup, mustard, anchovies.. name it it was in the bag he had (garlic onions etc). He poured it on the slip n slide, and then handed a random pledge a bottle of olive oil, and he has to chug it. He did as told then puked it on the slip n slide. Then that same guy had to go down the slip n slide fully clothed. In his own puke and all that shit. Worst part is, he had to wear that shirt every weekend and was not allowed to wash it. He was allowed to wear clothing over it, which he did a good job covering the smell using a ton of cologne and axe.”
Well, there you have it. Just one of the many reasons why we cherish the ritual of hazing so much. You have to picture a group of hammered bros sitting around their backyard with a slip-n-slide one summer afternoon. With the more drinks they pound down, the better their hazing creation becomes. Come Fall, their summer hazing idea becomes a reality. It’s amazing what dreams can come true with a few pledges to work with.
I’ve got to imagine that the actual event isn’t nearly as bad as wearing the same damn shirt every weekend for the rest of the semester. As always, hazing becomes an Olympic sport. The brotherhood inspires you to try new foods, loose weight and stay athletic all at the same time.
Too much? Not at all. Welcome to the brotherhood.
