Some Quick Purdue Highlights

  • As I mentioned before, there are no Purdue bloggers. This will make it tricky for my standard Q&A and Friday Night Lites, so I might just have to pull in a random Big 10 expert. Shame on you, Purdue, and shame on your indifferent fans. You'd think with all those engineers there would be one pasty dork with way too much free time to carry the torch. Sigh.

  • In my first ever post on this blog, I broke down the overwhelming mustachitude of Purdue's coaching staff. Well, turnover is a bitch, and this year's staff is a very clean-shaven bunch, with all of the mustaches purged except for Tiller and my personal favorite Brock Spack. New Defensive Line Coach Terrell Williams does sport a 'stache, but it's an underwhelming little ditty that looks like it was drawn on with an eyeliner pencil. Weak.

  • The 2005 game in West Lafayette was the most beautiful game I have witnessed in person. I think we all remember very vividly the infamous Ron Franklin quote:

I have a friend who loves Miller Lite, is pretty funny, and knows everything there is to know about Purdue football. He doesn't have a blog, but if you're interested in interviewing him, I could ask.

There are a couple of poorly updated blogs and I'm an alumni and plan on discussing them on my blog (feedingthegoat.blogspot.com) as soon as I get to actually watch them play more.

I just noticed that all of the "Purdue" blogs that FanBlogs and CFR link to (and therefore I link to) are actually ND blogs. When did that happen?

If you're really desperate, you can talk to this kid, who flamed me after Purdue's win in 2004:



Good game this weekend, Kid.

Students raise a stink at PU.

Dateline: 2/20/07, West Lafayette, Indiana, Purdue University

Written by; Mit Vergessin, Independent Correspondent

A disturbing new practice that is gaining momentum on today’s college campuses was brought to light recently in West Lafayette, Indiana, when a female student there was taken to a local hospital emergency room for treatment of a head wound.

She had been at a “gassing party”. As sick as it may seem, students all over the USA have discovered that inhaling one another’s farts can administer a potent buzz due to the methane content of the expulsion. The young female student’s head wound was not life threatening, but the incident shed light on the growing trend of gassing. The girl was apparently at a gassing party where she was about to indulge in her 15th “hit”, when she passed out, slamming her head against a statue of Danforth Quayle that stood in the hall of the frat house where the smelly party took place. The hospital staff dressed her wound, rinsed her mouth and had her sent home.

While he thought of inhaling an expulsion from another’s butt may be appalling to many, a check around campus found that ill attitudes about Gassing are in the minority.

I spoke to many students that shared their views on Gassing with me. Many of them had the same spin on the new craze: “Pot is expensive, booze is hard to get, and you can’t get arrested for sniffing a fart”. “The high is incredible” said one leather clad co-ed. “I can’t get enough of it”.

The local White Castle restaurant has seen an increase of sales on weekends because of this new trend. Manager Cody Boxell said that his store’s sales have reached an all time high, especially on the weekends when the Gassing parties take place.
“They come in droves and buy Crave Cases 6 or 8 at a time. That’s when we know there will be another gassing party. I call the campus police right away”.

Students have been known to seek out foods that will produce a large volume of gas for the least amount of money. The local grocery stores have seen an increase in canned refried bean sales as a result. Aldi food store manager Bunny Sander told me “ I hate these little bastards. If they buy gassy stuff like beans I call the authorities as soon as they leave my store”! “ I want ‘em to know that something bad is gonna’ happen”.

While conducting interviews with “Gassing aficionados” I learned some of the jargon they use in their hobby. Terms like: a wet betty, squeezer, corn slapper, splatter, cluster-bee, super cluster-bee, cheek-smacker, bare-back, fog horn, and tubing-it.

The normal mode of inhalation is administered by using a toilet paper tube (tubing-it), and the hardcore huffers go mouth to source (bare-back), but only after a good shower, or so I was told.

One student told me that “the high is great but the smell is pretty bad”. Another stated “It’s not too bad with the tube but bare backing with another guy is just gay”.

A recent check with the local hospitals showed that 23 people have been treated for Gassing-related injuries. A staff hospital member confided in me that at least 2 or 3 of the patients were Purdue professors who wished to remain anonymous. He said “I can understand students experimenting, I mean, what the hell, we all did stupid stuff when we were kids. But when I seen these teachers being brought in here, passed out and stinking like an out-house I really felt sick. The one woman teacher had a stain on her face that made me gag. I told my boss that the whole thing stinks and if it keeps up I’m gonna’ quit and get a job somewhere else”.
