Its a story as old as time; a kid gets a trendy new haircut and the school responds by predicting the end of society as we know it.
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.
Funny, it looks like Chuck Norris to me.
Seriously though, schools have had to deal with new fashion trends for years now. They always say it will be a distraction to the other kids and that
it will eventually lead to anarchy.
Then, everyone gets used to it, no big fuss is ever made of it and there is no total breakdown of society as we know it. Many of these fashion fads
fade away and carry on only in embarrassing yearbook pictures.
Schools need to realize that we have the technology today to carve detailed images in people's hair. Get used to it. This kid probably isn't the first
and he certainly won't be the last. Its the latest fad and time will tell if it lasts. One thing is for sure though; by making such a fuss over it
this time, you can be sure more people will become aware of this fashion trend and it will spread all the more quickly, thanks to this school's
actions in this case.
They should be thankful its just some lame sports guy carved into his head and not something more controversial. In the end, the world won't break
down because of this kid's haircut and people will quickly get used to it and it will cease to be a distraction.
Besides, how long do they think it will take for that to grow out and become unrecognizable anyway?
