West Fargo School Suspends Kid For Wearing Camouflage Shirt

suspended for wearing camo to schoolWest Fargo, ND – Eight year old William Yelverton just wanted to go to school to learn a whole bunch of knowledge earlier Wednesday morning, however, that was not the case.  William was suspended and sent home.

William went to school like any other normal kid Wednesday morning.  Smiling and full of sugar. However, William decided to wear a camouflage shirt to school that day and the administration didn’t take too kindly to it.

William was learning his states and flags when the intercom came on calling him into the principals office.  He slowly walked down the halls and into the office wondering what the heck he did.

Turns out, Williams camouflage shirt got him into trouble.

“They saw my camouflage shirt and were instantly intimidated by me they told me.”

William thought he was being fashionable and wanted to impress the girl he had a crush on.

“They also said that it could be dangerous during recess as the other kids could possibly not see me due to me blending in with my surroundings.”

“We try and promote non-creativity here.  As the years go on we implement more rules and regulations to limit what the kids can do.  We’ve banned tag, basketball, football, well almost all sports actually.  No more coloring either.  We really try hard to teach these kids…..something…..ya know,” the principal stated.

William says he might come back next week as a Ninja.  He stated that a Ninja can blend in with his surroundings better than a camouflage shirt, thus not getting him suspended again.


WNBA game suspended after ball gets stuck between rim and backboard

ballstuck_1Minneapolis, MN – A recent professional Women’s National Basketball Association game between the Minnesota Lynx and the Atlanta Dream suffered a stoppage in play after the ball became lodged between the rim and the backboard.

A Lynx player went for a fast-break layup only to see her shot get stuck, and as her attempts to rebound the ball became futile other Lynx team members and opposing players gave it their best try but none came close. Players offered to form a type of human pyramid to try to obtain the ball but the training staff and league officials would not allow it.

The officiating crew requested help from the crowd, but attendance for the evening’s game consisted of roughly 150 unenthusiastic fans not willing to provide assistance. Coaches and players then proceeded to throw water bottles at the ball to dislodge it, but to no avail.

Seeing as though the nearest Home Depot was 20 minutes away, purchasing a ladder became an unavailable option. Referees suspended play after efforts to remove the ball fell short.
