Re: “Frat

The scenes of abuse in hell week seem more fitting in Abu Ghraib than a Southern college. Frat boys stripped to their underwear, blindfolded, spat on, screamed at, and eventually beaten -- you know, mere child's play.

Are there jokes? Yeah. "Did you like that? I was channeling my father." But it's not "silly", it's uncomfortable. You're set immediately on edge. Perhaps what's silly is that we're so desensitized to violence that the protrayal of these abuses can ever come across as such.
