Ahh. The fam settled down to watch TV tonight, and we came across a classic of modern cinema...National Lampoon's Animal House. Oh sure, it's about a frat of drunken baffoons, and it was made by a company that has a reputation of being quite vulgar and neanderthal-ish, but damn they do make a funny arse movie.

In actuality, I'd like to think that Animal House is not promoting the existance of frats, since in the end the enemy frat gets slaughtered, rather it is showing how misfits, attempting to interact and be accepted by the mainstream (i.e, the misfit Deltas attempting to establish themselves in the Greek system against the snooty Omegas and failing miserably) then getting justice when they are not taken in. One could argue that it is actually celebrating nonconformity, anarchy and creativity.

Or it could just be about people who drink a lot and whose ultimate goal it is to finally touch a boobie. I could be wrong. But for now, it's really funny when Kevin Bacon repeats "Thank you sir, may I have another?"
