Not Drunk; Stupid in Michigan

Over in Livonia, MI, the Nazi administration at Stevenson High can't take a joke. The kids wore this shirt:

You know, making fun of the definition of driving drunk. Now they're suspended. Get a freaking life.

By the way, if you're old enough to tote a gun in defense of your country, you ought to be able to drink beer. The drinking age was 18 when I was growing up, and we're not dain bramaged.

Of course, MADD missed the point. Here's what they said:

"The goal is to prevent underage drinking, so there is zero tolerance," MADD member N'echole McClendon told MyFOX Detroit. "So for them to say that it's appropriate to drink and drive -- it's not. It's illegal for them to even consume alcohol."

Gee, N'echole, that shirt doesn't say they want to drive drunk; they're just having a little fun. Did you have your sense of humor removed and replaced with an oddly-spelled name?

I remember wearing a t-shirt in college that said:

DAMM -- Drunks Against MADD Mothers.

It got laughs then...

"Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son"
-- Dean Wormer, Animal House.

I would raise so much hell if my kid got suspended over something so asinine.
As far as the drinking age goes I agree. In fact maybe the whole thing should just be left up to the childs parents. I don't like mother govenment telling people when and if they may ingest a substance into thier body.
