    I knew there was some sort of rule for this, but the Genova Convention? I've heard this before. Is it true though?
    Maybe it was for soldiers falling asleep? Oh well, it not very nice what they drew but hardly criminal!

    If the man's shoes were on while he was passed out it is perfectly legal to draw on his face. It's part of the Geneva Convention. Apparently these two did not got to college.

    I agree with you JminthePark! If it was a prank on a sleeping drunk then you don't use a permanent marker! That guy will have that drawing on his face for a long time.

    What great news!! Haven't seen this on TV.

    Does anyone know if the drawing of the penis on the face was circumsized. The readers do need all the details.....

    Maybe the idiot with a penis on his cheek should learn to hold his alcohol next time. This is why after a certain age you don't drink to get drunk. Ironic, a 31yr old acting like a tweener...this guy is pathetic.

    Oh and to the dude with the Sharpie, you're equally as pathetic (and probably a closet homosexual to boot). If you really want to shame him, you should've colored his face entirely black with permanent marker. Amateurs....

    Seems to me that drawing on the face of a sleeping man with permanent marker is also an assault. Both roommates should have been charged.
