Mr.4444's recalls a funny t-shirt that started all the trouble in his high school; the infamous acronym on the shirt created by members of the Ashwaubenon Fine Arts Repertory Theater. (I'll give you a minute to work that one out.)
Yeah, A.F.A.R.T. apparently caused a bit of a stir back in the day, and that's why I think our parenting FAIL is Mr.4444's fault.
I should have paid more attention when Kyle said, "Check out our swim shirts!" and held it up for me to read.
Nothing bad there, right? Keep reading and see if you spot it.
I said, "Nice! I love the color! What does it mean?" and he replied, "It's the words from a song."
Did I ask, "What song?" or notice the LMFAO reference at the bottom? Nope; too busy on the computer...
So, the shirt apparently caused a little stir at the high school. The team captains were called down to the office and told that the shirt offended some teachers and probably shouldn't be worn at school. End of issue, really; no big trouble or anything, but I really feel dumb about not thinking that one through. On the bright side, neither did a handful of other adults who knew about the shirt before it even went to print.
Kyle thinks the objection is dumb, but he's respecting the ruling, of course. And, I suppose if that's the extent of his high school-aged rebellion, we got off easy.
