Sorority girl 1: Look at how cute our pledge is. She has to walk around campus wearing a bumblee costume and singing "Stars are blind."
Sorority girl 2: Yeah, we should make her eat dog food later. After pledging we don't even have to let her in.

a ridiculously lazy shit who literally spends his working day doing nothing and then gets promoted for no explainable reason. Likes to have fun and verbally abuse people for shits and giggles. Has a receding hairline that seems to make him look like a young Peter Sutcliffe
"that gentleman who stares at his computer and does sod all has been promoted again"
