Other common, identifiable 1970's clothing styles have made a comeback, so I guess that 'bad' one can, too.

Wait....were butt letters around the 1970s or am I misunderstanding your post? I remember butt letters being from the late 1990s and early 2000s!

They certainly lasted much longer than the early 2000s, as I remember them well - and recall many conversations had here on GC about them - and I was initiated in 2004 and joined GC in 2008.

But yes, perhaps I misunderstood as well. Either that, or butt letters have been a thing for much longer than we realized!

ETA: it's late, I'm tired, I've had a couple glasses of wine, and now I suddenly can't stop laughing at "butt letters"

Oh yes, I wish I still had photos to prove it. Butt letters were in use in the Midwest in the 1970's. Now you're making me wonder whether they were in use during an even earlier era!

While driving back from DC to NYC yesterday, saw an Alpha Gamma Delta sticker on a car (with a CT license plate).

At Rosh Hashanah services this morning, I saw a guy wearing an AEPi yarmulke.

A few months ago I was at the clothing store I work at. A lady came up to buy something and had an Alpha Kappa Alpha shirt on.

Seriously, this came with the following email:


I have attached a little humor for you from Iraq. It's actually what
spawned my inquiry into the old chapter. One of my responsibilities out here with the Iraqi battalion is overseeing construction projects in support of the unit. I am having a fort built for one of my Iraqi companies and have a local construction contractor working for me. I was out at the construction site a couple weeks ago and saw one of the workers wearing an odd article of clothing that looked familiar. I called him over (which is a task when no translator is handy) and saw that he was wearing a sorority sweatshirt!! I about lost it. I yelled for my translator, then made him explain the sweatshirt and its meaning to the worker. Needless to say, he was not pleased to be wearing a "girl shirt". I explained that it meant he was part of a club (easier to explain club than "sorority") of a LOT of beautiful women, knowing first hand since I dated a few in my day, but he was still not pleased. So please, pass this on to the appropriate sorority sisters you know, and tell them that their rush efforts in Iraq are seriously slipping. This isn't the caliber I remember of their sorority at ASU. It might even be worth posting in the IFC office for all to enjoy.

I hope to talk to you again and see you at one of the events this fall.

ITB,

If you right-click on the "kitten picture" and select "view image" (on a Mac at least), it takes me to your original PhotoBucket site, but still only shows the kitten. In the URL bar, it shows that the photo file was called, "ADPi_in_Iraq.jpg". I then went to Google and searched for "ADPi_in_Iraq.jpg".

You're welcome.

Finding greek letters somewhere you didn't expect...in an old newspaper photo of a football crowd at an Alabama/LSU football game, a young lady was wearing identifiable Kappa Delta greek letters.

Oh this is amazing! Imagine there being people wearing greek shirts and such in other countries if they were donated.

Last winter, I was sorting donations a women's shelter would use for domestic violence victims, and the rest went to their thrift store. Someone donated letters (Delta Zeta). I don't think any of them made it into circulation (poor condition, dates on event t-shirts).
