Super Frat Battles Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld on Spring Break
By M&C News Apr 4, 2006, 17:17 GMT
Super Frat, the webcomic based after the adventures of Ryesmore University's fraternity Lambda Sigma Rho, has launched their second annual "Spring Break Special" online.
The special posts each day from April 3rd to the 7th on the Silent Devil. This year, the strip features special guests Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld on Spring Break in Daytona. The White House has had yet to comment on the strip.
Campus Army Recruiters Fight Super Frat
Meanwhile, in the regular online webstrips, Lambda Sigma Rho Treasurer Ira Flenstein continues to battle army recruiters on the Ryesmore University Campus. Citing the ease at which the dim-witted, politically unaware student body can be fooled, Flenstein argues that the recruiters have an unfair advantage. Rumors continue to persist that Dean Calfinch has encouraged the recruiters to target members of Lambda Sigma Rho, but this cannot be confirmed. Although most members of Super Frat acknowledge that their super powers could be used to put down the insurgency, they were quoted as saying the Iraq War "totally sucks major ass". Pledgemaster Dick Warblerson reaffirmed this statement by belching loudly and then vomiting onto a pile of recruitment brochures left in
the Student Union.
Silent Devil Stands Behind Webcomic
Silent Devil continues to deny rumors that it has been pressured to cancel Super Frat. The publisher recently won a hotly contested lawsuit against Ryesmore University over the portrayal of the fraternity's antics. Several well-connected alumni of Gamma Iota Alpha (Lambda Sigma Rho's rival fraternity) including two Senators, have denounced the webstrip for being lewd, vulgar, indecent, disgusting, graphic and tasteless. A third senator that denounced the strip withdrew his comments on Friday when it was revealed that his daughter had voluntarily appeared in the first Spring Break strip topless. Silent Devil publisher Christian Beranek continues to stand by the webcomic and has already scheduled a Super Frat comic book graphic novel to be released in September.
Illustrator Chris Moreno and Biographer Tony DiGerolamo were unavailable for comment as they are accompanying Lambda Sigma Rho on their Spring Break while producing this week's webcomics.
