I was going through my weeknight routine of singing Toto’s “Africa” in a bathtub when I stumbled upon a gem in the Dartmouth student newspaper.
The TL;DR version of the article is that there was a Dartmouth fraternity that lost all of its brothers to graduation, save one. We’ve all experienced massive house membership overhaul due to graduation, but the situation that Yovany Jerez faced was ridiculous…ly awesome. Take it from someone with younger siblings who spent his childhood dreaming of all those little turds getting kidnapped before they could snag my inheritance: being an only child is what brotherhood is all about. At least the lone remaining brother doesn’t have to worry about anyone blackballing him.
Anyway, long story short, I was about to do a write-up on the story for TFM News, until my thick-haired colleague Roger Dorn astutely pointed out, “Yeah, we’re gonna pass on this one seeing as it’s a 12-year-old story,” then called me a moron under his breath (probably).
Real stickler for details, that guy.
But some ideas are simply too good to let trivial little things like “facts” get in the way, and if you don’t believe me, just ask my man George Dubya. So, myself and The DeVry Guy teamed up to kick out some Total 1 Man Frat Moves.
You nerds got your own T1MFM’s? Feel free to leave them in the comments.
