When a dead whale washed up in Atlantic City near the Central Pier, it was just asking for some purple graffiti on its belly, like the guy who falls asleep at the kegger and gets Sharpied. The local press noted that the symbols "were not gang-related," but "appeared to be Greek letters," which are their own (traditionally whiter) kind of gang sign.
A close look puts the blame on Tau Epsilon Phi, which is headquartered in Voorhees, New Jersey, and has chapters at nearby Rutgers, Penn, and Rowan. In addition the fraternity markings, there was also the number 94. Yes, people born in 1994 are in college now.
Sad story. This whale washed up on shore & was then 'tagged' by someone under pier at Tennessee Ave in Atlantic City. pic.twitter.com/Nw0sAQZdW9— FOX 29 (@FOX29philly) May 1, 2014
