Spine? Snipe? Pines? I give up.

What a bunch of dicks.

Mr. Fraughton is deserving of much shame. I live in Utah and feel it should be my mission to shaving cream a penis on his garage door once a week, every week for the rest of time. But I won't, because I'm way to lazy. But it goes without saying that Mr. Fraughton deserves much scorn.

First, he gathered with neighbors to practice cheering for a team?  Really?  A team that doesn't yet exist, and your kids are too young to join? And second, no one in the world would have ever considered calling them the Phoenices until you made it an issue. Now they will. It went from 0% calling them the Phoenices to 99% of rivals calling them the Phoenices because of you, Mr. Fraughton. You have to own that.

So the real story is diction.

"The mascot - a mythical firebird said to be indestructible as it regenerates itself by rising from the ashes..."

So, "Firebirds"... was that so hard?

Isn't it pronounced FEE-nuh-cees, not FEE-nuh-suhs?
2017-11-14 10:27:27 AM  
Farmington should change their name to Peniston.

\problem solved

Nope, it's pronounced PEE-nic-es.
2017-11-14 10:28:54 AM  
So when there is a come-from-behind victory, we can say the penis rises from the asses.

A phoenix is a weird choice for a mascot anyway - it's main skill is taking a beating and then walking it off.
2017-11-14 10:39:06 AM  
And the phoenices shall rise!

So your kids are too dumb to talk good and their shiat's all retarded so everything should be changed to accommodate them and their filthy minded parents? Murica!

You whipped that out pretty quickly. Should I be worried? I'm kinda worried

Wouldn't you be?  Imagine your child properly naming a part of the human anatomy, or worse hearing something that sounds like it.  Gateway to scat porn and the pot, proven fact.

I don't mean to be crass, but don't want there to be confusion around the point I am trying to make," Fraughton wrote

give the guy a break; he doesn't want to cheer for athletic young phoenices and meanwhile his own point confuses people.
maybe the confusion lies in the brevity of his point?

Wow, even by Utah standards, that is one incredibly white group of students. I'm guessing the two girls in the second row who appear to be of less-than-100%-Caucasian ethnicity may be just about the only ones in the school who are like that.

Hello, OnStar?  I've drawn a man's sausage and I need directions away from here.

You should have excused yourself  before you whip it out

I used to work for Ypsilanti High School in Michigan, when that district still existed (another story).

For the longest time,  their mascot was the Braves, complete with a Native American imagery. In a PC oriented move, they decided to change. The contenders for the new major were the Royals and the Phoenix.

The schoolboard rejected Royals due to implications of incest. There was a lot of controversy about Phoenix due to "their association and use in witchcraft," which I suppose they learned from watching Harry Potter?

Anyway, Phoenix won, and the plural of Phoenix was going to be Phoenix. Once drawings started to be submitted, the big controversy was the fear that people might mistake the tailfeathers for penises.

It was all for nothing anyway, as the school district and another nearby got merged together due to financial insolvency. Now the school occupying that location had the major of Grizzlies, with a growling bear.
