University of Tennessee student denies 'butt chugging' reports, claiming he's a Christian...
NY Daily News ^ | 10/3/12 | By Erik Ortiz AND Anthony Bartkewicz

Posted on 10/03/2012 2:55:23 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

There’s no butts about it.

A University of Tennessee student who allegedly binged on alcohol by “butt chugging” denied that he was hospitalized for the dangerous activity, claiming he’d never do such a thing because it would violate “God’s law.”

In a rambling written statement, 20-year-old Alexander (Xander) Broughton said, “I am a Christian who would never desecrate my body in that manner.”

“That manner” would be consuming alcohol through a rubber tube inserted into his rectum.

Broughton, of Memphis, was taken to a Knoxville hospital Sept. 22 with a blood-alcohol level at a life-threatening .40, according to reports.

The scandal led to the suspension of his Pi Kappa Alpha frat chapter through spring 2015, outraging his frat brothers.

It probably happened, as kids do stupid stuff.

I just hope he learns to not do it again.

Sounds as if he needs to consider changing his name and moving far away where no one recognizes him

well, it would enable the kid to save money (one presumes it is unnecessary to purchase the expensive booze if consumed in this creative manner?). With BHO's depressing economy, saving money on any purchases is becoming more and more necessary... (smile smile)

So his story is he is a drunk who passes out and craps his pants but denies butt-chugging because it’s not Christian. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.

What’s sad is that breweries work so hard at creating beer that tastes good—apparently, it’s a waste of time.

claiming he’d never do such a thing

How would he remember what he did - Alcohol level .40
Perhaps the hangover cured him of his wild oats

Just because you call yourself a “Christian” doesn’t mean you can’t also be a butt-chuggin’ mo-ron.

The press conference his lawyer gave is a laugh a minute riot.

Look, he’s a PIKE! They’ve been doing stupid stuff since my college days 35 years ago. When I first heard this story and they said he was Pi Kappa Alpha I thought, “figures”.

Butt chugging is better for you than drinking. When you drink, the alcohol is absorbed by you small intestines, and follows the blood circulate directly to your liver. When you butt chug, the alcohol is absorbed by your large intestines, and is circulated throughout your body before it gets to your liver. That is why many drugs are administered via suppositories.

These college kids are so smart!

I know you're joking (well, I hope), but...

...just to be clear, alcoholic enemas are VERY dangerous, because it bypasses the toxin filtering mechanisms contained in the upper GI system. Hence toxins, as well as alcohol, pass directly into the blood stream, to dangerous effect.

At least Yander is not gay. I am sorry, to have a press conference where his lawyer threatens to sue everyone involved because poor little Yander got drunk and nearly died....its just comical.

My chapter got into some trouble (regarding drinking, of course) about 45 years ago as well.
