Do y’all remember the transitive property from math? Here’s a refresher (though I’m sure you don’t need it): If a=b and b=c, then a=c.
From the Savana Redding case (the one on whether schools may strip-search their students), we know that some school officials consider ibuprofen in the same class as heroin.
A couple of months ago, a Virginia girl was suspended from school for possession of birth control pills. Gasp! They are obviously as dangerous as ibuprofen! The Pill can cause clots; ibuprofen can cause bleeding.
Ergo, the Pill is as dangerous as heroin; a=b=c.
Now, the girl from Virginia has turned the tables in the smartest way possible, by mocking her school’s lunacy. She went on Colbert and just deadpanned her way through her story. Her mom, on the other hand, could hardly keep from busting up. I loved them both.
It’s the sort of story that Colbert is wont to make up – except this one was all true.
My husband’s comment: Do we have to worry about the Bear being busted at school for having a Lactaid in his backpack?
My reply: I really don’t know.
