High School Senior Suspended For “Crude” Quote In Yearbook
A Georgia high school senior who was selected to give an inspirational speech to her cohorts at graduation may be suspended after her nerdy yearbook quote spelled out “back that a-up” in letters from the periodic table of elements.
Paris Gray, class vice president at Mundy’s Mill High School in Clay County Georgia, served an in-school suspension Friday after it was discovered what her Yearbook quote actually meant, TV station WSBTV reported.
The message — “When the going gets tough just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus” — seemed innocuous enough, but after the yearbooks were distributed, administrators discovered what those elements’ abbreviations on the chemistry chart actually spelled.
She may now not be allowed to participate in graduation May 28, the station reported.
“I think their reaction was beyond what it should have been because nobody understood it,” Gray told the station.
But she insists there was no sexual innuendo involved.
“Basically, it was me just saying start all over again,” she told the station. “You have to go back and start all over.”
The school has yet to make a formal decision. A message left for the district was not immediately returned Tuesday.
“It just completely destroyed me, and my mom’s been telling me don’t let it ruin my happiness, but it’s, like, really taking a big toll,” Gray said.
That’s some ol bullisht! Her lil’ message was creative and funny.
Furthermore, we have a hard time believing, in this “tanned” America we live in, that none of these teachers or principals have ever “taken over for the ’99 and the 2000”
