Ok, maybe they shocked some people. The rest of us just looked like this:

Three 19-year-old students at the University of Mississippi -- members of Sigma Phi Epsilon -- decorated a statue of the first black student to ever attend Ole Miss, James Meredith, with a noose and an old version of the Georgia flag that incorporates the Confederate flag.

They got the boot from their frat, and the chapter has been suspended. In the meantime, the three idiots men have lawyered up. Which might be the only smart thing they've done in the recent past.

For the record, Jamed Meredith's wife says the only thing shocking to her about this is that it didn't happen sooner.
