Free the SNOHOS!

In a major victory for political correctness and a boon to the ever-oppressed Laplandic wimmin of direct vendor street level entrepreneurship, football players at Snohomish High School will no longer be able to wear t-shirts that say "SNOHOS."


Vice Principal Robynn Harrington told Patrick the shirt "didn't seem appropriate" for school and that he needed to cover it up. Patrick said that when he protested, Harrington called in another vice principal to confirm that the shirt violated the school dress code, which prohibits any display of words, pictures or references to alcohol, tobacco, weapons, guns or sexual innuendo.

Frustrated, Patrick said he walked out of the office and returned to class. When he was called back by a security officer the next period and was again told to cover up the shirt, Patrick said he lost his temper and used "a few choice words."
He got a one-day suspension for dress-code violation and sexual harassment and a second day for "gross insubordination."

Patrick's father, Barry Patrick, regrets that his son lost his temper with a school official. But he also can't believe his son was suspended for adding an "s" to a common abbreviation.

How much are you willing to bet that the other Vice Principal she consulted had the last name of "Glasscock"?

Which of course means the creation of the "FREE THE SNOHOS" campaign.

Personally, I think we should start an internet groundswell to buy every kid at Snohomish High School a "SNO BALLS" T-shirt:

We'll leave the final word to that great revolutionary leader of the proletariat, Twinkie the Kid:

I hate asshat administrators, and they deserve all the derision that will be heaped on their narrow shoulders and shiny Sears suits.

Yips from Robbo: They've already come for the Snohos. You and I, Steve-O, know who they'll be coming for next.

Is she going to ban pantyhose, or Ho-Hos? She better hope that one ice skater, Irina Slutskaya doesn't show up at the school.
