There's been an illness in fratboys since the dawn of time, that illness is being a farkin' jack-ass.
 
2002-04-09 12:00:28 PM  
Probably aids, from their circle-jerks.

That kid who drank pond water for extra credit sent some to his older brother who happened to be a frat boy.

Mystery solved.

"They could have spread it to others, person to person," by sneezing or shaking hands, Finton said.

Looks like it was spread peron-to-person at the banquet...they all ate each others tube steak.

Ba-ZING!

"They could have spread it to others, person to person," by sneezing or shaking hands, Finton said.

"Or, they could have spread it amongst themselves back the way we used to do it when I was in college," Finton added, "by trading bodily fluids while wrestling around on the floor. Ah, college - the good old days." Finton then looked wistfully out the window and sighed.

I first read this as "Mysterious illness spreads among flatboys, and it's not the crap". Does this mean that I have been turning Japanese?

This fraternity isn't the usual fraternity, like young white anglo males with lots of their parents money to drink with. This is a business fraternity, I think co-ed too. Like a society that would look good on a resume if one was a business major. They were at the fraternity's 'job-fair'. I-Tappa-Kegga wouldn' have one of these.

I'm sorta glad my University doesn't have Frats; we're arrogant all on our own! QUEEN'S U REPRESENTIN'!

"Fulton County health officials do not know what made them sick. All of the students stayed at the Omni Hotel in downtown Atlanta for a Pi Sigma Epsilon marketing and sales profession fraternity convention."

Marketing and sales, right... How many call girls and amplifiers were rented for this "convention?"

How can a fraternity be co-ed?

Do the boy scouts admit girls?
 
2002-04-09 12:12:22 PM  
"They reported nausea, vomiting and diarrhea."

That's what binge drinking does to you...
 
2002-04-09 12:14:29 PM  
Their only called fraternities because they have greek names. There are honors, law school, business (as mentioned), etc types that are a more 'get involved' in your major type thing. Not like the usual fraternities that everyone thinks of, hence the frat bashing...

My college was "non-Greek" and we didn't have frats or sororities---except for these crappy co-ed service/business things. It would crack me up when I'd hear someone say "I'm going to party with my frat brothers for spring break" and they're wearing an Alpha Phi Omega shirt. Party usually meant building a habitat for humanity house. Some do it for the resume building of it all but most are just wannabees.

Article::...Pi Sigma Epsilon marketing and sales profession fraternity convention...

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Would you like fires with that? HAHAHA!!!
 
2002-04-09 12:19:04 PM  
Forgot about the service ones...

I remember a Gamma Gamma Gamma one were ALL the chicks were fat. I thought for a while that it was some weight loss frat/sorority for a while.

"They are also examining stool samples from the students to see if a virus or bacteria may have caused the illness."

Examining the stool of Fratboys? Finally, someone has a worse job than me!

It's not so bad -- just a quick inspection of the lips, tongue and throat...

Sales Conventions always make me feel queasy....

""It's a mystery, and I don't like mysteries," said Bob Finton"

I think Steven King is overrated , myself.

"They are also examining stool samples from the students to see if a virus or bacteria may have caused the illness."

Maybe if they look close enough at the samples, they'll find $100 dollar bills.

"They are also examining stool samples from the students to see if a virus or bacteria may have caused the illness" I think this guy needs to go back to med school because I think ALL illnesses like these are caused by bacteria or viruses.

Sure, the boy scouts were sued to allow girls in because the GS didn't offer some things a few girls wanted (ignoring the sex jokes). I've always wondered what would happen if a boy sued to join the girl scouts? Hey! THAT'S an idea! Instead of volunteering to teach wilderness skills to young boys in the BS, I could volunteer to teach young girls in the GS!
 
2002-04-09 12:35:24 PM  
Sounds like stool-pusher's disease to me. Frat-boys, HA!
 
2002-04-09 12:38:18 PM  
Uh, do people not read the articles when they create their headline?

This wasn't a fraternity. This was a group of dorks in a business club.

Learn what the fark a real fraternity is, suckos.
 
2002-04-09 12:40:39 PM  
I farked them all and I didn't get sick.
 
2002-04-09 12:41:23 PM  
It's from all the ass to mouth cumshots they were taking.
 
2002-04-09 12:49:07 PM  
"It's a mystery, and I don't like mysteries"

Hehehe, for some reason, i find that line funny.

"This wasn't a fraternity. This was a group of dorks in a business club." - TLBreer

I don't think this fact is too important in this situation. I don't know about the other farkers reading this story - but the way I see it...a frat is a frat and a homo is a homo. Any frat is going to get ragged on - at least on this site.
 
2002-04-09 12:52:10 PM  
Uh, it's fraternity and not frat.


Why would people rag on the social fraternities anyway? Is everyone jealous of the "successful campus leader" anyway?
 
2002-04-09 12:53:26 PM  
Not so much jealousy... more like pity.
 
2002-04-09 12:53:56 PM  
This illness smells like justice.
 
2002-04-09 12:55:30 PM  
50 guys living in one house? I'm all for alternative lifestyles, but these frat things sound far too progressive for my liking.
 
2002-04-09 12:55:47 PM  
Too many games of soggy biscuit.
 
2002-04-09 12:56:03 PM  
They reported nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

several bottles of cheap tequila and one visit to Taco Bell.
sounds like a college right of passage.
 
2002-04-09 12:56:24 PM  
right = rite ?

All you motherfarkers are gonna pay, You are the ones who are the ball-lickers. We're gonna fark your mothers while you watch and cry like little biatches. Once we get to Hollywood and find those Miramax farks who are making that movie, we're gonna make 'em at our shiat, then shiat out our shiat, then eat their shiat which is made up of our shiat that we made 'em eat. Then you're all farking next.
Love,
A concerned Frat Boy

"Finton said health department investigators are examining food samples to see if food at the hotel may have made the students sick..."

"...Three of the students were sick before they arrived in Atlanta, Finton said."

Call me what you will, but that seems to rule out anything relating to the convention as being the cause, no?

That movie blew goat. Never quote it again
 
2002-04-09 01:24:59 PM  
Die, Fratboys, Die!!! Once all the fratboys are dead, then we shall rule!
 
2002-04-09 01:29:36 PM  
Unlike true fratbiatches, I don't rent my friends and I don't count on dateraping drunk girls for getting laid.

Isn't the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention located in Atlanta? Is it JUST a coincidence that a mystery epidemic breaks out ALSO in Atlanta? I THINK SO!

I was in a business fraternity in college, but I called it a professional business organization. I think that social fraternities resented the fact that business fraternities had greek letters. We did have some kick ass parties though. The co-ed factor was a real plus.
 
2002-04-09 01:44:09 PM  
Crazy_girl--My college didn't have frat/sororities either. We had "social service clubs".
We had cool frat looking Tshirts too. Except our formals were actually a dinner and some sort of non sexual non offensive entertainment and then back to the dorms for curfew.

OBB, Queen's doesn't have a greek scene? are you sure? I'm in Tau Kappa Epsilon at Carleton in Ottawa.....

Uh, I didn't have to pay for my friends or date rape women, either, and I was in a fraternity.

I like mysteries....perhaps he hasn't found the right author yet. I suggest some Patricia Cornwell.
