Shaving a picture of Matt Bonner in his head could net a young Spurs fan an in-school suspension
A young San Antonio Spurs fan faces an in-school suspension on Thursday if he doesn't somehow find a way to alter the image of Matt Bonner that was shaved into the back of his head. You read the previous sentence correctly. The Spurs forward, who is averaging just 14.6 minutes per game in the postseason, has apparently made such an impact on Woodlake Hills Middle School student Patrick Gonzalez that the youngster decided to have a hairstylist shave an image of the Spurs sharpshooter into the back of his haircut. Via Tas Melas, here's the image that has the principals at Woodlake Hills Middle School in righteous fear of the apparently inevitable anarchy and lawlessness in the school halls that will result if Gonzalez comes to school on Thursday without changing the haircut.
Because the image is so threatening, and so severe, if the style isn't "fixed" by Thursday, Gonzalez will have to take in an in-school suspension (the worst of all suspensions, because you don't get to go home and watch TV), because that seems very rational and fair to all the children.

what is GrandHeretic's avatar about?
as for the kids hair, i assumed it was some albino guy with african ancestery.
could be the hair, skin tone, nostrils i guess.
I assume that its a public school but I have to disagree with you anyways. People are there to learn and I believe that they are trying to prevent this from happening again with a more controversial image.

Sometimes I would love to be a parent of a kid they were trying to silence... I would have a field day!
