Gen X Man Errors in Judgement, Gets Paddled on the Rear by Young Whipper Snappers

Real deal, or satire?

When someone from Generation X, or the older generations, talks about getting paddled when they were younger, it’s usually by someone that was older. If we committed a serious enough action that dictated a butt whoppen, we increased the chances for a butt beating.

Well, a 45-year-old man exercised such error in judgment, and ended up getting paddled in the rear by members of a younger generation.

I was in a social fraternity during my first attempt at collage, going through the pledge phase, then initiation into the fraternity. No paddles were involved, but we had a wading pool outside the fraternity house that we constantly got tossed into… Regardless of what part of the year it was.

Although fraternity life was fun when I did it, I wouldn’t do it now, at my age… I’m older than the guy featured in this article.

Of course, at 45, he should’ve known better even if he never had fraternity experience. He has a couple of teenage sons, and he had to remember his mindset when he was a teenager, and when he was a young adult.

He was doing the equivalent of being a senior NCO that decides to “go native with the privates”.

From the New York Post:

A middle-aged Brooklyn man told cops he paid a painful price for pledging a fraternity at the ripe old age of 45 — by getting whacked on the backside hundreds of times with a wooden paddle, police sources said Friday.

Well, let’s see. He decided that he wanted to join a fraternity. He goes through the process, and ends up with young whipper snappers whacking his backsides with a paddle. The bruising was serious enough that he went to the hospital to get treatment. Then, this led to him talking to the police.

Didn’t he see Animal House?

That’s when they went more medieval than Greek on his heinie, whacking it up to 200 times with the paddle and their open hands, according to the sources.

Well, in certain sectors of society, “going Greek” means a back-door entry via the pooper. So, this guy would’ve been f’ed either way.

On a side note, Pew Research has decided they will use 1996 as the last year that Millennials were born. This means that the youngest millennial will turn 22 before the ball drops this coming New Year’s Day.

So, chances are that there were those among the paddlers who are members of Generation Z.

Because of the nature of what happened, I’m entertaining the possibility that this could be satire. if not, we’re familiar with “Teh Stoopid”.

    Not only a dumbass, but a SORE dumbass. Not only gave these kids a chance to whup a newbie pledge, but how many you think were getting a little pay back to their dads for whuppings they got as kids?

    What college I got was from night classes. Even if I would of had an opportunity for traditional college life, never had a desire to go “greek” in any form. Disclosure. Did have a visit to Greece during a TDY Training/firing mission to Crete. The folks there were real nice and treated us Army troops real well. Damn oouso bit the hell out of us.

    Generation X?

    Nah….

    Tony called the cops because he thought he was pledging Lambda Lambda Lambda (Tri-Lambs), led by U.N. Jefferson…

    What did he think he was pledging, Delta Tau Chi at Faber College?

  4. Mason says:

    I hear the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change and the US Supreme Court have similar initiation rituals. All probably originates from the Stonecutters who really run the world.

    Hack Stone is starting to have serious doubts as to the legitimacy of the Vice President of the proud but humble woman owned business checking new employees for hernias.

    Paddling is not only for the young. WAR STORY ALERT: We used to spend our three day breaks in London’s Bayswater District with some friendly lasses who liked partying with Yanks. One girl had a an older distinguished gentleman “client” who paid her to chase him around the bed paddling. Didn’t want sex, just the paddle. No joking. I was in the other room one time.

  7. (not that) Mike says:

    Pledge, or Rush? I can’t imagine they accepted him into their frat. I’m not clear on all the distinctions, as I never felt the need to share girls with my friends, but I’m pretty sure there’s a difference.

  8. My, My, My says:

    May I have another….

    Anyone 45 years old and wanting to join a Greek letters fraternity is in need of a mental health clinic not college. Even back when I was in college no guy that wasn’t an arrogant affluent a-hole wanted to be in a fraternity. Maybe this man is gay and was hoping to pledge lambda lambda whatever for some cream of sum yung guy soup.

      Depends on the school and the chapter. Couple of the houses on our campus would have had to be toned down considerably to become ‘Animal House.” Pledge class president missed rush week facing ADW charges in the city nearby, we had three dealers one guy whose girlfriend lived with him in the house for a semester. And yeah, paddling could smart some – when exchanging swats with my older brother he hit me hard enough that the pocket watch I was carrying in my front pocket broke. Dean of Women blacklisted three parties to freshman women; two of them were ours. All fraternities are no more alike than all service units.

    • J.R. Johnson says:

      You have to consider that the listed fraternity, Omega Psi Phi, is an all black fraternity. These are the guys that like to get brands of the Omega on their arms (the more the merrier), and usually consist of a few athletes. 200 swats that left him in a state to be hospitalized were not a friendly game of trading swats between big and little brother. This was hazing by definition.
      Fraternity rituals usually evolved from some game of trust, and devolve to hazing when the understanding of the purpose is lost. Clearly no-one had the pledges interest in mind when they blindfolded him and started.
      He obviously missed the opportunity the first time around, and thought he would be experienced enough to avoid things like this from happening this time around…he was wrong.

    Maybe his mistress beat his ass and he needed an excuse so his wife wouldn’t leave him….

    Because of the nature of what happened, I’m entertaining the possibility that this could be satire.

    Indeed this smells really off from the cheap seats. Could be hoax, could be true, just smells “off”, I’ll be waiting for more information. There are far too many idiots these days so it sadly could be a real story, but the whole idea that the apartment is now locked and boarded and the dude’s not answering his phone for the cops smacks of some asshattery.
