Animal House

And Who Among Us Has Not Thrust His Exposed Manhood into the Face of a Drunken Freshman Girl?

Well, me for one.

I attended an Ivy League college in the 1960s. We all knew which social organization was our college’s version of Animal House. We all knew that if you went to a party there, you were going to see a lot of alcohol-fueled testosterone overloaded transgressive behavior.

I believe that many of the young women who attended parties there more or less knew what to expect, and that they enjoyed it, or at least one side of their personality enjoyed it at the time. But that wasn’t true of all of them.

So, if you are an Animal House alumnus, the very last thing you want is to have the FBI, armed with Section 1001 of Title 18, to be closely questioning you and your thuggish buddies about what went on in your misspent youth.

With that background, I think you will find this very informative—unless, that is, you think it is irrelevant to know whether the good judge used to be a drunken lout:

Key points for me:

  • Brett was a big part of Animal House culture at Georgetown Prep and then at Yale,
  • the exposed penis incident was widely known at Yale at the time it happened, and widely discussed among Yale alumni this summer.
