Is that all you got?

The other day I headed over to the local Catholic high school to provide some coverage of their Vow of Silence day. The idea was to be silent for 24 hours in solidarity with children around the world who are living in horrible conditions and don't have a voice. The students also made a banner, which I photographed them with, that said "I AM Silent..." and then they wrote their reasons for participating in the day all over it. A nice idea.

On closer inspection however, it appears not all of them had the best of motivations:



What really cracked me up though was that even though they were engaging in vandalism, the strongest language they could come up with was "frigging."

Either today's vandals just aren't that creative or there's something to be said for that Catholic guilt I'm always hearing about.

Oh my goodness - too funny! I'm a fan of Frack. Which makes me a really big nerd. And anyone who understands that.. an even bigger nerd.

If only one of them had volunteered to give a speech on "Silence Day" and got up to the podium and just stood there, mouthing a twelve minute oratory explosion. Then, he could have tried go get out of a pantomime box.

Frigging fracktastic.

Sarah said...

haha. I tried to trick them by yelling "Say CHEESE!" but it didn't work. Still, cracked myself up, and that's obviously what matters.

I'm all about saying the word you mean... I don't see how friggin gets so little attention when everyone knows you mean fucking.

Stupid Catholic guilt ( I finally escaped it 4 years after high school)
