It really is dumb.

Honestly, why would you risk charges of theft and all that, when they could have gone to any of the local lakes or retention ponds and nabbed one the good old-fashion way.

It is not exactly hard to find an alligator around here.

Oh Lord.

Well, SAE got the boot from your collegiate neighbors two semesters ago. They were known as being the dumbest of the frats on campus for a long time, and they they got busted. This is where the lovely gem of "mangled hot-dogs" came from.

I am sure you got to hear the local coverage for that little incident:

"The inside of the common area reeked of beer, urine and vomit."

This and other startling statements were included in a UCF Police Department report released Thursday. The report detailed the Oct. 26 incident that led to the suspension of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, which was upheld Thursday.

 UCF police reported that officers responding to a call about possible hazing arrived at the SAE house shortly after midnight Oct. 26 and heard "agitated and aggressive screaming," profanity, and "weeping and moaning."

In the report, UCF police gave the following account of the incident:

SAE members at first tried to deny police entry because they were performing a "ritual," but "fearing for the safety of the people inside," police entered the house.

Inside, police found men "sobbing," "practically naked," and dressed in costume, including one man wearing a rainbow-colored wig and diaper, and another man wearing "women's bras and panties."

Police contacted Orange County Rescue when some of the men were deemed in need of medical attention, citing that one man "appeared to have trouble breathing." Another man received assistance in order to "keep him from lying in his own vomit," and one "could not walk under his own power."

Police found "numerous" beer cans and bottles, one mostly consumed bottle of rum and "numerous mangled hotdogs" scattered on the floor of the SAE house.

Last year some time I read about an animal preserve in Australia that had a missing alligator or crocodile. They had named the beast Mr. Crankypants and couldn't imagine why anybody would bother with the trouble of taking it. They found it abandoned in a nearby swamp two or so days later.

I've seen them around campus. My roommate is acquainted with all of them. According to him, they're not too bright.

What the article isn't telling you is that they're all in the frat Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and that the frats have been up to stupid crap for the past few weeks for their new members. While this isn't part of it, I'm sure their interpretations of that craziness went terribly wrong.

All I know about it now is that the administration must be extremely pissed right now. Chances are, SAE is going to be kicked off campus as a supported student group.

Click here to see the gator Robbery surveillance video

Daytona Beach Shores Police Officer Mike Schoenbrod says he was patrolling the Congo River miniature golf course early Thursday morning, when he noticed the teenagers had climbed into the alligator pool.  Schoenbrod says the men were trying to lure a gator out of the pool with palm frond and duct tape.

The teenagers ran when they saw Officer Schoenbrod, but were caught a short time later.

Police say Jesse Ramos, 18, George Grampp, 18, Craig Devries, 19, Eric Tatki, 19, and Thomas Shaughnessy, 19, are all students from Embry Riddle University in Daytona Beach.

Police say the teenagers confessed that three of them were posted as look outs, while the other two tried to grab the gator.

The students were booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail with a bond of $1000 each.  They all posted bond Thursday and were released.

The alligator was not hurt.  Congo River says it will conduct an inventory of their animals to make sure none are missing or injured.


Tolgak, don't you go there? You know any of these bafoons?
