When a high school senior used her yearbook quote to do more than just say good bye to her class, she nearly lost her speaking slot at graduation. If you are wondering how she snuck a secret message past the all powerful yearbook committee… try putting together Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium and Phosphorus. If you still can't decipher the message, watch the RidicuList.
No matter how cleverly she may have slipped in the message, what young woman with any self-respect at all would want her yearbook photo to be accompanied by a quote from a song whose basic message is that women are no good for anything except sticking their butts up so some guy can hump them?
This is a bad message as it condones acts of immaturity. There should be consequences for for those who lack maturity and discipline. The consequence of not giving a speech was suitable for what she did as being given the honor to participate in such events should be reserved for mature and disciplined people who have earned such privileges.
Paris, Way to Go! That's Awesome and so clever. Geesh, school administrators need to be focusing on the real problems on school not smart, well behaved children that come up with clever ways of getting what they want passed the year book committee!!! You Rock Paris :).. Best of Luck!
