Question [Sep. 22nd, 2005|01:22 pm]

Well, I'm about to be rocked by a hurricane. But amidst the chaos and mass gas station and Kroger swarming, I have a question.

I need to preface this by stating that I go a Major University. Despite its reputation as the "non-party" school, it is still college, there are still frats, and there's still lots of drinking and partying. Now I'm not much of a partier myself, but I can understand why people do it, and I'm not one of those "DRINKING IS EVIL!" types—I just don't feel like it. Basically, I don't really give a shit either way.

But I've never been able to figure out one thing. Invariably, at every party, there's one guy (or girl) on the lawn who shouts "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!" repeatedly the whole night. He or she is almost never joined by other participants, or I could chalk it up to the drunken partygoers' attempt to make a chorus or lure more guests. No, this guy is always alone, and the other participants always awkwardly sidestep around him.

What's up with this guy? Is this some sort of fraternal mating call? A Freudian expression of the id? Can someone explain this phenomenon?
