Dudes are strange. They’re obsessed with butt stuff, they find humor in the most childish things, and they like to physically fight one another “just for fun.” But Kennesaw State’s Pi Kappa Phi has taken strange to a whole new level with the recent shenanigan they pulled.
Sentinel photo editor, Matthew Boggs, caught a bunch of Pi Kapps chilling in the sewer reciting strange poems. From the KU Sentinel:
“I was walking across campus on a night photo-walk when I thought I heard voices coming from behind me. I turned around and there was no one there,” said Boggs. “I realized it was coming from the drain and I first thought it was echoing from somewhere else, but then I saw a cellphone underneath the drain grate and I knew people were down there. It sounded like chanting and it was very unnerving.”
Luckily for us, he recorded some of it with his phone.
The members begin by chanting the names of their founders in unison, “Anthony Pelzer Wagener, Theodore Barnwell Kelly, James Fogarty…” and continue on with a poem.
And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to a mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say
For it isn’t your father, your mother or brother
Who judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Aaaand then the dude stopped recording, because he has no respect for those of us who can’t live our lives on a cliffhanger. The next line, for those who care, reads “Is the one staring back from the glass.” It’s a passage from “The Man In The Glass,” a really nice poem written by Dale Wimbrow if you care to read more.
The fraternity has given no comment regarding why its members were chilling in a sewer reciting weird, ritualistic poems, but they did (at least temporarily as the tweet has been deleted) view the press as a good opportunity for a theme party.
I so hope that still happens..
