No doubt....that is the most "brah" (or bro) of all law schools.....maybe Duke next

This is relatively new. Unfortunately, it hit my campus with about a week left of my undergrad career.


I feel the same regret.

Frat culture, in which the total lack of decent humor causes jokes to live ten times as long as they should.

This is what bro-ness is all about. Doing things that make no sense to a casual observer, and sound outrageous when considered out of context, yet somehow are fun and hilarious at the time.

I feel like this 'bro' thing is like a tackier version of New England WASP culture.

/not that there is anything wrong with that.

Exactly.

From Deadspin (a sports blog):
And if you are one of these people going around surprising people with your broriffic ice attack, just know you are a dipshit who uses annoying drinking challenges to cover up for the fact that you are an uninteresting person who is unable to simply sit and drink and have a normal, useful conversation. You probably go to Holy Cross.

If you show up to your interview with these cuff links, you will get a job, because they will know you are a bona fide bro that was born to ice, ice, baby.

Speaking of, I'm moving into my apt this fall a few days before my roommate. Should I put a Smirnoff Ice in his bathroom medicine cabinet?

I fail to see how playing a game invented by advertisers is any of those things.
