    A really bizarre story here:

    THIS is an unfortunate lapse in judgment but not malicious? Uh-huh.

    Anybody else find it really odd the school requested the heads all be the same size with eyes all at the same level?

    I remember when I was in high school, hearing about another school (somewhere out of state) that had a yearbook come out that divided everyone not by class or anything like that, but by stuff like "Jocks, Preps, Freaks and Geeks."

    It went over like Sergeant Slaughter's Iraqi sympathizer heel turn in '91.

    They're trying to make me an escape goat.

    No offense, but who gives a flying fuck?

    I might be compelled to part ways with a flying fuck if I paid what HS yearbooks are going for these days, only to get something like this.

    Yeah, someone got fired over that.

    Agreed. How in the world did this become a story anywhere outside the cafeteria of Shithole High in Texas?

    Uh, perhaps because we've seen plenty of stories of the "yearbook staff kiddies fuck up" variety. This time, it's either the company that prints them or the school itself that fucked things up, not the yearbook kids.

    If I shelled out whatever these kids paid for to get a yearbook, I'd expect them to be quality. I don't remember what I paid to get both yearbooks my senior year, but it sure as hell wasn't cheap for a broke ass 17-year-old kid.

    Perhaps newspapers will look as awful as this yearbook did before long.
  12. I found it interesting, as some others obviously did. Let's not start shitting on a journalism topics thread. If you don't like the topic, don't post here.
