— LauraW. You know how it is. You're at the local pub, pounding suds before a roaring fire, gazing boozily into the flickering flames, and BAM.
"Why, hey there, look at the poker sitting amongst the coals," you mutter to yourself. "It's glowing a delightful cherry red, innit?"
Always seems like a good idea at the time, doesn't it?
Heh, I know, I know. If I had a nickel for every....look, just don't ask.
Thanks to Eddiebear.

fraternity pledges when he was at Yale -- and presumably had done to
him when he was a pledge.
Everything comes back to Bush, eventually.
I'm sure copious amounts of alcohol were involved in the Yale incident as well.

I know, Bob, it's such a common practice as to be a dog-bites-man story.
What can I say? Slow news day.

Back when I was at OU, in the Dark Ages of the 80's, the black fraternities used to brand their pledges with red-hot coat hangers fashioned to spell out their greek letters. Generally on the outside of their triceps. Dunno if this still goes on.

Obama went to Columbia and Harvard Law, not Yale. It's about time we broke this long string of Yalies.

Yes, I can see that there's a WORLD of difference between one group of Ivy League pricks and another.
(And I say this as an Ivy graduate.)

Weren't Kerry and Bush both in the Skull and Bones?
I just had a terrifying vision of Kerry....eww.

IIRC, some of the Dallas Cowboys of the 90s (Emmitt Smith and one of their linemen) had those things.

That's the funniest thing I've ever seen. Tell us another one.

I've already told you that I don't care about you.
You may call me a liar if you wish but that would be par for the course for the sad, insignificant person you show yourself to be.
I pity you.

Oh, you said suds.

Actually, this sort of thing happened to me.
We were at the local pub, pounding puds before a roaring fire when I said, "Hey, why don't you guys shove that poker up my butt?"
Tim thought I said, "shove your poker up my butt".
I never got branded though.

C'mon now...Let's look at this, logically and realistically.
You have the option of a $400 tatoo of Betty-Boop, or........?
Betty Boop?...Free brand with a red-hot poker?
Free brand, every time

What? Is this turning into letters to the Forum of Big Boi Butts for Men from Bob Munch?
Posted by: dlm at January 31, 2008 08:54 AM (wxBdh)
I don't know. I managed to survive six years in the Marines with no brands or tattoos. I watched enough Rawhide to figure branding was permanent and painful. Tattoos look to be about the same.
Although I knew this girl...

I'm from NC.
I don't currently live in NC.
I couldn't stand the smell drifting northward and had to move.

I never get tired of Bob's 17 year old wit.
