I'm hoping the stupid tag is for the kid.  The junior AW doesn't need any encouragement.

Why was a beauty pageant contestant at a Q&A session at the school? What could she possible have to contribute to scholastic success?

"Miss America, how did you get where you are?"
"By being beautiful!"

"Miss America, what do you recommend we study?"
"How to be beautiful!"

So you'd be OK with the entire entertainment industry going away? How do you think we find these farked up people to enjoy on TV or movies or radio or people that play music for the rest of us to enjoy?

Should've just asked her to boink him. Go big or go home.

gotta crush that youthful optimism before they graduate otherwise they might go on to do something inconvenient like get elected senator and try to fix things.

The kid knew what was going to happen if he asked her to the prom so he deserves what he got.  He should have changed up his game in light of the fact that the school administrators were going to be dicks about this.  He should have said he wasn't going to the prom so would she want to accompany him to the nearest Holiday Inn Express to try out a bunch of positions from the Kama Sutra.

Genius! And we're going to film it and pay her so we can get around those pesky prostitution laws.

Davuluri was at the school to talk with students about diversity and the importance of science, technology, engineering and math studies...and being pretty.

FIFY.

Yeah, this.  "Ms. America, speaking of diversity, do you have any Anglo-Saxon in you?  Would you like some?
 
2014-04-19 02:07:01 PM  
I don't see why the school had to get involved. Doesn't Miss America have a football player boyfriend who could have just beat up this neo-maxi zoom dweebie for asking?
 
2014-04-19 02:49:38 PM  
I had Miss America in my car once.

Worse, that would mean these fine individuals with so many other skills to help advance society would no longer be sequestered in their own little worlds and we'd have to deal with them in ways other than disdain and mockery.

That kid immediately became a legend at his school and will have songs of honor sung about him for years to come. What he did was a once in a lifetime chance and I can certainly appreciate what he did. The suspension was stupid unless he caused quite a disturbance, which it does not sound like he did.

WhyteRaven74: I'm trying to figure out why the school would've even said something about it beforehand.


Because it's old and played out and they knew EVERY damn kid was going to ask her.  From my perspective, they challenged the students to be creative with their dissidence and the kids failed.
 
2014-04-19 03:08:13 PM  
From her wiki page, she initially entered pageants to earn money for college.  Then she did decently in college, and is planning on med school.

Sounds like she's not the stereotypical vapid beauty contestant, and probably has some good advice for high schoolers... when she's not being interrupted by a yokel asking her to attend the prom with her.

I'd say he risked causing a disturbance. If she would have said yes you don't think that would've been a big deal on prom night?

techgeek07: Why would they really care?


Well, if your students are totally inappropriate to the speakers you bring in, it might be hard to get more of them in the future.

Yeah, she was probably a stupid choice as an invited speaker, but it's still completely inappropriate to ask a speaker out during an assembly, and the school told him ahead of time not to do it. So I'm at my maximum level of non-sympathy here.

Also, I know it just got laughed off at the time, but I think it is indicative of kind of a crappy attitude about women on his part. It reminds me a lot of how women on internet game servers can't speak on voice without some idiot hitting on them. It might be funny the first time some hopeless idiot hits on the pretty lady, but I'm willing to bet it happens on some greater or lesser level to her pretty much every day, and she'd probably appreciate people treating her like an actual human being for five minutes while she gave her speech or whatever. This is why we can't have nice things.

"Dear local high school, about your request for a donation, FARK YOU!"


I think it would be far more effective to demand all of their financial records, then start going thru them line by line. As my late accountant father said, in an audit there's always something to find. Or as Stalin's secret police chief might have put it, "Show me the records, I'll find you the crime." Knowing that someone is bulldogging their every expenditure would be more disconcerting than not receiving money that was hypothetical to begin with.

I have no problem with this
 
2014-04-19 03:20:04 PM  
"Kid, whad'ya get?" I said, "I didn't get nothing, I had to pay $50 and pick up the plastic flower." He said, "What were you sent to detention for, kid?"

"Asking Miss America to the Prom"

And they all moved away from me on the bench there, and the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean nasty things, till I said, "And creating a nuisance."

And they all came back, shook my hand, And we had a great time on the bench, talkin about crime, mother stabbing, father raping, all kinds of groovy things that we was talking about on the bench. And everything was fine, we was smoking cigarettes and all kinds of things, until the Assistant Principal came over, had some paper in his hand, held it up and said. ...

This.  Stunt prom invites are stupid anyway, but this is is the equivalent of "TITS or GTFO"  Go home and spank it to fantasies of a threesome with her and your vacuum cleaner, but treat her like any other speaker at your school otherwise.

I feel the same way when women do it to a famous guy.  The implication is that they are supposed to be flattered by your interest in them as a sex object.  It's pretty creepy.

2014-04-19 03:25:13 PM  
The school says students are disciplined for breaking rules and this incident is no different.

Yes, and I'm sure the school is in the habit of making up arbitrary rules to discipline people for breaking too.
 
2014-04-19 03:25:23 PM  
School officials heard about Farves' plan in advance and warned him not to do it. He has apologized for disrupting the event.

This is the first story I've read about this incident today that included this detail, so I'm calling bullshiat on the school officials.

Hand Banana: WTF is an in school suspension?


We had that in junior high, not high school though.  ISS for short.  You sit in a room with other lil arseholes and don't speak.  Bring homework or something to read, otherwise you just sit there.
 
2014-04-19 03:29:35 PM  
I for one support this suspension.  It was cute the first time or two but the whole prom date celebrity thing is way past its prime.  You can see the looks of horror on the faces of celebrities when it happens now.  We could do without anymore surprise the family back from Iraq videos too.  Now get off my lawn!

Possibly but what kind of cred would you get for having Miss America as your prom date? She went to the school assembly without causing a ruckus; Miss America doesn't rank up there with A or B list celebrities. It would be newsworthy but I don't see the paparazzi inundating the school prom.

And you usher in "term limits", because a new candidate is cheaper to buy than maintaining an incumbent.
