Cool Young Rand Paul Was Secret-Society Prankster In College

by Jack Stuef

These five people and two glasses of Pepsi are a SECRET SOCIETY.Anti-statist Senate candidatista Rand Paul didn’t actually finish college because he did well on his MCAT and got into Duke Medical School, which is actually sort of “bad-ass.” Now, according to Gentlemen’s Quarterly, it turns out “Randy” Paul was part of a SECRET SOCIETY at Baylor made mostly of LIBRULS who smoked POT and did PRANKS and put out a SATIRICAL NEWSPAPER criticizing the university administration. Nowadays, that sort of thing would segue you into a high-paying management-professional job at your Wonkette, but back then it turned you into an ophthalmologist. Interesting.

And so the NoZe Brothers would perform “Christian” songs like “Rock Around the Cross”; they’d parade around campus carrying a giant picture of Anita Bryant with a large hole cut out of her mouth after the former beauty queen proclaimed oral sex sinful; and they’d run ads for a Waco strip club on the back page of The Rope. In 1978, the Baylor administration became so fed up with the NoZe that it suspended the group from campus for being, in the words of Baylor’s president at the time, “lewd, crude, and grossly sacrilegious.” During Paul’s three years at Baylor, according to former NoZe Brothers, if the administration discovered a student was a member of the NoZe, the punishment was automatic expulsion.


The strangest episode of Paul’s time at Baylor occurred one afternoon in 1983 (although memories about all of these events are understandably a bit hazy, so the date might be slightly off), when he and a NoZe brother paid a visit to a female student who was one of Paul’s teammates on the Baylor swim team. According to this woman, who requested anonymity because of her current job as a clinical psychologist, “He and Randy came to my house, they knocked on my door, and then they blindfolded me, tied me up, and put me in their car. They took me to their apartment and tried to force me to take bong hits. They’d been smoking pot.” After the woman refused to smoke with them, Paul and his friend put her back in their car and drove to the countryside outside of Waco, where they stopped near a creek. “They told me their god was ‘Aqua Buddha’ and that I needed to bow down and worship him,” the woman recalls. “They blindfolded me and made me bow down to ‘Aqua Buddha’ in the creek. I had to say, ‘I worship you Aqua Buddha, I worship you.’ At Baylor, there were people actively going around trying to save you and we had to go to chapel, so worshiping idols was a big no-no.”

Hmm. This woman says “they never did anything wrong,” but this does sound rather illegal. More importantly, though, will Rand Paul become the Senate’s first practicing Aqua Buddhist? [GQ]

If anyone wonders what a National Lampoon would look like if staffed by people who wanted to go to a no-dancing Baptist hellhole in the Vagrancy Capital of Texas in the first place, this expose is indispensable.

Kidnapping and implied threats of sexual assault? Now that sounds like a Republican, unlike the prankster parts.

That was the strangest episode of his college career? Lightweight. If he never went camping on acid, he doesn’t deserve to say he went to college.

Baptist womenfolk are supposed to obey men, so let’s look at the kidnapping/paganism in that light.

Hooray For Anything August 9, 2010 at 3:16 pm

[re=634963]BlueStateLiberal[/re]: Yeah. Nowhere in the Constitution does it prohibit the kidnapping and forced pot smoking out of a bong. That’s why we people who are fightin’ for Americans to be able to have a Constitution protected so that we can have the ability to do all that.

“lewd, crude, and grossly sacrilegious.”
Somethings never change.

In honor of NoZe, I will march with a picture of Rand Paul with a hole cut out of his head.

I thought the first rule of NoZe Brothers was nobody talks about Noze Brothers.

Lionel Hutz Esq. August 9, 2010 at 3:24 pm

They have a co-ed swim team at Baylor? Surely that is violating one of God’s commandments right there. I’m not sure about Aqua-Buddha…, but I’m not sure he would be down with a bunch of dope smoking heathens forcing some young lady to “bow down” to anyone.

Still, without at least the implied attempt to have sex with someone that is underage, and ideally of the same gender, I do not see how any of this will help gain Republican votes.

Terry August 9, 2010 at 3:26 pm

“This woman says “they never did anything wrong,” but this does sound rather illegal.”

Yeah. Kidnapping for a start.

Extemporanus August 9, 2010 at 3:29 pm

I believe it was Aqua Buddha who once said: “One cannot be kidnapped and forced to get high and worship me in the same creek twice.”

She requested anonymity because of her current job as a clinical psychologist? I think the words in that sentence are slightly out of order, and there are some missing words. I think it should be: She became a clinical psychologist because of that episode.

Well, as long as he is not an Aqua Muslim, I guess he is okay.

Baylor and most of Waco suck really really bad. Really really really bad.

Aqua Buddha, Aqua Velvet, Blue Velvet…

Wait a minute – was Rand Paul carrying a briefcase when all this happened?

JMP August 9, 2010 at 3:42 pm

[re=634983]stew[/re]: That comment’s a little too on the NoZe.


McDuff August 9, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Knew a couple of dudes in college who fake-kidnapped another buddy at a shopping mall and nearly ended up in jail. Some lady saw them, get their plate number, and called the cops. Cops traced the car, came to campus and found the ‘nappers, but couldn’t find the “victim” for a couple of hours since he went to the library to study in some remote corner. Turns out faking a crime is itself a crime, at least in Illinois.

DoktorZoom August 9, 2010 at 3:44 pm

Great comments at the GQ site… one commenter is certain that the blogger is a shill for International Jewry, and another is convinced that only Ron & Rand Paul can save us from “the transhumanist psychopaths” in charge. I’ll assume that means lizard people?

Extemporanus August 9, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Lift your lighters and lower your pants, everybody — the Aqua Buddha rave starts NOW!

RPPTT August 9, 2010 at 3:47 pm


You must have never attended college. People are “abducted” regularly, however, but if they really do not want to go they’re not forced. It’s part of a game.

If you truly believe it to be “kidnapping”, than by God there are a lot of people in college now and in the past that need to be behind bars for decades (the penalty for actual kidnapping is rather steep.)

Hooray For Anything August 9, 2010 at 3:51 pm

The bad news for Rand is that this doesn’t look good and will probably turn of a few Jeebus lovers. On the other hand, I’m sure Rand can make inroads now with the very important Aqua Buddhists vote.

At no point in her story was a blind fold required. She knew where she was the whole time. Its like they were just into gratuitous blind fold applying and had to think of weird things to do that would justify using the blindfold.

I wonder how Alex “BOHEMIAN GROVE LICKS THE DEVIL’S HINDQUARTERS” Jones is going to rationalize this with his sloppy manlove of all things Paul.

This would be entirely amusing, except that apparently he is going to win.

Hooray For Anything August 9, 2010 at 5:49 pm

Since she is apparently okay with this, I’m wondering that when she says “kidnapped and forced into taking bong hits” what she really meant is that Rand had some stuff from Humboldt and as he owned a 3 foot bong he named Aqua Buddha, she decided to join in. But as none of her friends knew that she secretly dropped acid at Dead Shows when touring with them, she made up the “kidnap” bit because that would explain her run to 7/11 at 3 in the morning to buy Ho-Ho’s.

sanantonerose August 9, 2010 at 6:38 pm

NoZe was (is?) an overrated group of smart ass losers who managed to produce a coupla funny editions of The Rope during my incarceration at Thee University. Elm Mott. Pink paint. Groucho glasses. Oyez.

Jukesgrrl August 9, 2010 at 6:43 pm

So, in other words, he was just a normal, sex-obsessed, dopehead goober until he was seduced by the exotic genius of Ayn Rand? And to this day, he’s still doing her bidding? Even though she’s dead??

Way too many bong hits. Maybe Brian-Wison-too many.

Maus August 9, 2010 at 7:13 pm

[re=635241]Jukesgrrl[/re]: They do call Randians a “personality cult”, after all. It only strengthens their faith when dear leaders dies (see Scientology.)

Maus August 9, 2010 at 7:15 pm

” “They told me their god was ‘Aqua Buddha’ and that I needed to bow down and worship him,” the woman recalls. “They blindfolded me and made me bow down to ‘Aqua Buddha’ in the creek. I had to say, ‘I worship you Aqua Buddha, I worship you.’ ”

I do enjoy how Paul comes off like a puka shell-wearing stoner rather than a “captain of industry”. I long for the days of the Masons.

Terry August 9, 2010 at 8:33 pm


Yes, I did attend college. The only think I ever helped to kidnap was a 3 ft tall chocolate rabbit. No matter how drunk we were, we never kidnapped a person. Maybe it’s a frat boy thing.

Waiting or the inevitable Rand Paul – Antoine Dodson mash up

Egregious August 10, 2010 at 8:07 am

The fact that Rand Paul was a Noze Brother is actually the first positive thing I’ve heard about him. If you’ve ever visited Baylor U (aka Theocracy U), you’d understand.
