What utter bullcrap. They force you to buy a plastic gown that you'll only use once and claim it's green. Yeah, fark them.

You know what green is? Green is having a room full of wool gowns that last decades and that they can be rented out (you know- for cheap) to students with an option to let them buy one if they really want it. You know, what used to be common practice before Jostens started giving kickbacks to school administrators so they can lock students into paying $50 or so for something cheaply constructed out of the world's cheapest polyester fabric that cost them 10 cents made in china.

Forgive me if I'm not impressed. It's a publicity stunt, they're still just pumping out more disposable crap into the world. If you want to be green, you don't make something with the expectation that it'll be used once and thrown away.

Fark Rye For Many Whores: Let's see that must be a meaningful allusion to... uh let me see... nothing.

I think it suggests that many of those graduates will end up sorting garbage at the recycling plant.
