    Wonderful ironic humor calling out the racial attitudes of their classmates.

    I mean, with those asterisks, it really could be anything.

    My money is on "snifter." The girl with the S was just in the bathroom.

    Other stories note the girls were suspended for five days, followed by Twitter comments that five days is the standard suspension for excessive tardiness.

    Been waiting for this to pop up here.

    My son is a senior at this high school. Suffice it to say... the social media outrage machine is a very bizarre thing to watch from up close.

    I'm guessing an extra asterisk photobombed an innocent celebration of the glorious African country of Niger.

    The photo is a lot better with their smiling angelic faces in full view.


    Such youthful joy.

    Clearly, they're big WWE fans and also the local chapter of the Dyslexic Roman Reigns fan club.

    Maybe they're big fans of Al Nipper?

    Did I miss something? When did "nipper" become verboten?

    One of the girls is a redhead and they meant to spell GINGER, but they're dyslexic.
