- The 12 Labors (Religion, Folklore, and Urban Legends)
"So this was all part of a hazing ritual?"
"The twelve labors."
Hercules, the strongest of the Greek heroes, was tasked to complete 12 labors by the Oracle at Delphi as penance for killing his wife and children. These labors were set forth by set by King Eurystheus, Hercules' mortal enemy, and included slaying the Lernean Hydra and capturing the Cretan Bull and the guard dog of Hades. Since one of the Tritons' 12 labors supposedly involved doing shots at 12 bars, something tells me that these labors may have been a bit easier than Hercules'. Then again, achieving membership in a secret society isn't exactly on par with doing penance for killing your family.
