She should go up front when her name is called to the Homecoming Court... go to the microphone...."I respectfully decline. Only shallow dimwits care about this kind of thing."

And then let the shallow dimwits stand up there under the spotlights, all eyes on them, thinking, "What do I do? What does the crowd want me to do?"

Maybe their heads would explode.

Theaetetus: jaylectricity: She's not ugly enough for this to be heartwarming.

No, don't you see, the thin, cute blonde girl with the boyfriend gets teased and bullied into being prom queen, but she totally shows them by showing up and- get this- being prom queen! And she gets a makeover! And possibly a scholarship somewhere, but she decides to take a year off and model and/or work for the Peace Corps. Where she meets a really hot guy who's also a model and possibly an heir to a shipping fortune. And this was all because she was teased for being unpopular.

That's what I was thinking. She's cute enough to dominate at least one other truly ugly girl, so this is a matter of her not applying herself.

O yes. I was geek squad in HS. My supergeek gawky science chemistry freind that got endless flack in high school is now the super model married to the TV producer. 40 and omg hot.

The popular "hot girl" football fan (read:cokewhore) that was the atypical populist cheerleader that literally spat at the feet of my friend is, of course, now the fat with three kids and ugly now stereotype.

Of course, the popular guys are all 40 and fat now too whilst I am the one who became the sexy rockstar, o yeah.

Where she meets a really hot guy who's also a model and possibly an heir to a shipping fortune. And this was all because she was teased for being unpopular.

Who gets picked on is the oddest thing. I knew a girl who was blond, normal-looking, big boobs, who was relentlessly picked on. But she wasn't part of a clique, there was that. And IIRC, she showed some affection to one of the alpha male guys, all of whom had in-crowd girlfriends.

BUT - it does happen. I think it boils down to a) Not being in a clique, b) being at least slightly socially awkward, and c) being more... assertive than someone in that role is "supposed" to be, according to the in-crowd.


CSB time:

I went to a large regional school and we had the "cool clique" too, but it was weird because they were the only ones that saw themselves that way. They only numbered 20 in a class of 450 students, in a school of 2500. And that's 20 across 3 grade levels and a few new blood recruits, manly dumb witter freshmen girls to play with..

They saw themselves as the MTV/movie like typical "cool" clique, but everyone in the school just made fun of them, and was generally non-cliquey, and was friends with each other, with everyone BUT them.

The backstabbing and pants shiatting that small group did 2-3 weeks from graduations was priceless. They were like deer in headlights when they realized that they weren't on good terms with others, and weren't going to know anyone at the colleges they were headed to. Like clockwork, they all ditched each other and tried to weasel their way into friendships with others going to the same colleges. Everyone just laughed harder at them.

I see a lot of them when I go back home to visit the parents. Most didn't make it through college, and they're not doing much with their lives.

Fark Me To Tears: FTFA: Kropp said Whitney was humiliated when she learned Sept. 13 that her selection to the homecoming court had been part of a joke. She said students pointed at her in the hallways and laughed, and the boy who was picked with her withdrew.

"She was getting ridiculed in school and on Facebook," Kropp said.

It's amazing how small the worldview is for teens, especially in a small town. I think it would be hilarious if this girl wound up getting a break from someone in Hollywood and became rich and famous as a result. In 10 years, when her fellow students are all still hanging out at the local laundromat on Saturday nights, maybe it will finally sink in just how retarded they all were when they pulled this prank.


Nah. They'll just go on disability from their townie public service job, then vote Republican.

I think the most Dazed and Confused moment at my highschool was when a bunch of doofi in the stands began pelting the Junior Varsity cheerleading squad with Puppy Chow during their first pep-rally routine.  Then the football coach came out grabbed a microphone and proceeded to have a ten minute verbal aneurism. 
 
It was a  kinder more innocent age.
