On the YouTubes: School's In.... Forever

So school opened yesterday, and our BFFs at Reston Patch were there with one of those fancy "video cameras" we keep hearing about. Maybe our own attitude about school is to blame, but we especially enjoyed the bluesy soundtrack, which reinforced the idea that heading off to school is just another example of working for the man, only with naptime and chocolate milk. Oh, wait -- apparently chocolate milk has been banned. What's next -- tetherball?

On the bright side, Fairfax County appears to have outsourced scoliosis screenings, saving the current generation of children the indignity of queuing up to have a school nurse prod vaguely at their backs and mumble something about poor posture, the end.


  1. OMG --- that's more Kool-Aid than Jim Jones!

    "the sun is ALWAYS shining" GAAAAG!!!

    Smyers Save Me!

  2. Ah-- Sunrise Valley -- where the smiles are perfectly aligned and there are no children from section 8 housing to mar the landscape. Diversity at its sanitized best...what a shock when they get to Hughes and South Lakes.

  3. did that assistant principal pop some Quaaludes before coming into school?

    and call me crazy, but nothing turns me on more than a middle aged woman wearing a thick lanyard, I'm hot for teacher
