Super Frat Crossover with Dick Masterson!
â€œThe story was inspired by Dickâ€™s recent visit to Ryesmore University,â€ says Lambda Sigma Rho biographer, Tony DiGerolamo. Â â€œThe boys had lost a keg of beer and Dick helped them find it, so we decided to do a detective story. Â Turns out the keg rolled into a local sororityâ€™s shower. Â Took forever to get it out.â€
Using his chauvinist detective powers, Dick Masterson helps Super Frat when they are framed for a campus prank.
â€œYoung men today need a role model that understands the inferiority of women,â€ said Masterson. Â â€œAs that role model, I travel from town to town spreading my vision of a Utopia where men can watch football in peace, the ‘friend zone’ is a thing of the past, and the highest career aspiration any woman can achieve is as a headlining stripper.â€
The Super Frat/Dick Masterson Crossover begins in October. Â Visit Super Frat at www.superfrat.com and visit Dick Masterson at www.menarebetterthanwomen.com.
