Stupid College Activities

Remember this post I did yesterday, on a new funding model for universities? Well, this genius is Exhibit A on why it won't work:
A college student claims he was injured when a fraternity member in a "drunken stupor" decided "that it would be a good idea to shoot bottle rockets out of his anus," and did so, "but instead of launching, the bottle rocket blew up in the defendant's rectum, and this startled the plaintiff and caused him to jump back," and fall off the fraternity's deck.

Louis Helmburg III sued The Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity Inc., of Huntington, West Virginia, and Travis Hughes, a fraternity member, in Cabell County Court...

Helmburg says Alpha Tau negligently failed to supervise its guests and members, "such as defendant Hughes, and other under age persons, from consuming alcohol on its premises, which leads to stupid and dangerous activities, such as shooting bottle rockets out of one's own anus."

As for Hughes, Helmburg says, "Defendant Hughes also owed plaintiff and others on the ATO deck a duty of care not to drink under age, or to fire bottle rockets out of his anus."
Louis Helmburg III. Good ole Lou Helmburg. Think this kind of publicity is going to help you get a job one day, Lou?

At least he's not the guy lighting bottle rockets in his butt. That would be one Travis Hughes.

Thank God my kids didn't join Greek organizations. While some do good things, most of the time they are petty selfserving party organizations. This is hideous behavior, but sadly, it is nothing new.

A bottle rocket went off in his ass, eh? Anyone check to see if it caused brain damage?

Louie the 3rd isn't the culprit, it's Louie Jr who is likely driving this b.s. lawsuit. I wonder how many beers it takes before shooting a rocket from your butt sounds like a good idea?
