We used to have a name for dumbasses like this:

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) - Two former fraternity brothers were sentenced to community service - but escaped jail - for stealing and eating a jumbo goldfish at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The men were drunk when they snatched the 18-inch koi fish, which was referred to as both Midas and Goldie, that lived in a university-owned pond. The men fried the fish and fed it to fraternity pledges last year.

The incident was filmed for the MTV series "Fraternity Life," but never aired. Prosecutors used subpoenas to obtain out-takes.

Seventh year juniors...

Santa Cruz is just across M... (Below threshold)

Santa Cruz is just across Monterey Bay from me. This was a very big news story here. Seeing these guys on the evening news and listening to them speak almost had me throwing things at the TV. They are typical frat boy morons. One of the guys actually said that he felt he was being targeted because he belonged to a frat!

What I have a bigger problem with -- and this seems to be ignored by the press -- is that MTV supplied these kids with booze and got them dangerously drunk. I don't know why the producers of the show weren't dragged into court and put on trial for their part in this.
