Okay, so after much deliberation I’ve decide to join…


“The Holy Philanthropic Order of the Knights of Columbus”


Like most fraternities, they have an initiation ceremony. The details of which are kept secret by an Oath of Secrecy. This Oath is also a part of members’ religious/knightly duties.

I’m kinda scared though. I’ve seen too many psycho-suspense thriller movies. I’m afraid of what they may make me do. I’m afraid they may tie my hands behind my back while I swear some weird-ass oath, or put a hood over my head while someone wails on me, or hold a knife or sword to my throat while being made to swear an oath, or walk across hot coals (walking across coals would be pretty awesome actually, cause then I could brag to myself about it). I’m afraid they may make me do some scary-ass shit like that.

I’ve personally never joined anything near anything like this sort of thing. If any of y’all have been, are, or have recently joined, anything at this level of weirdness, if y’all could tell me what kind of stuff the initiation is, and penalties for leaving (if at all). I don’t want personal experiences, just something so that I can get an idea of what to expect. Also this way too, I wont be driving home from the ceremony crying like a little bitch.

Oh, by the way, it’s also too late for me to back out. Again, I’m really scared you guys.

*I’ve already submitted my application and am awaiting interview before the Grand Council *

When I joined my frat, there was one particular ritual called the elephant walk. If you hear anyone mention that, run.

Knights of Columbus are pretty well known here. They do charity stuff and sell tootsie-rolls. You probably already know all this, but I feel like procrastinating from homework right now. Most people here like them or don't mind them.

Edit: I may be thinking about a different Knights of Columbus...

Make sure you watch the whole movie, alone. Don't even think about slightly attractive girls.

Quote by Urban Dictionary
A group dance, generally used as a hazing activity. Put one thumb in your mouth and the other in the asshole of the person in front of you. Everybody does this so that it forms a loop. You proceed to dance around in a circle. Should anyone's thumb become dislodged from the ass of the person in front of them, they must switch thumbs.


I weep for you, Shinysides.

No, its the same ones.

Although theres a knights of columbus in ACTUAL Columbia (like South America Columbia) that worships Christopher Columbus as a warrior-godess born in present-day Columbia.

I read somewhere on-line, so I doubt its true. But still, even if that's true, its still hilarious as hell.

I laughed at that.

Also, I dont care for Stephen Colbert. He's too much of a smug-ass douche.
He only makes jokes, for the sake of making a joke. Frankly, Colbert is creepily nationalist.

I like John Stewart better. When John Stewart makes a joke, it actually has a meaning behind it.

I have a friend who goes to UT he says that once they are initiated they cant talk about it so that adds a creepy molester touch to it. (pun not originally intended)

We have a uni in the UK that basically sets you up to get raped in a field, so that's the kinda thing you'll be up against.
