Girls Don't Need College; Beauty School OK

While looking through the pictures that have been uploaded to the Facebook group ("I judge you when you use poor grammar"), I came across this:





















I hope this is a joke, but I can't find the story behind it. Anyone know whether it's an actual article from a high school paper?

I went to a Christian high school in Annapolis, MD, and the local newspaper there has a program that lets local high schools "take over" a page of the paper each week. The students choose topics and write the articles, and the paper publishes them. A few years after I graduated, I read the paper when it was my high school's turn to take over a page, and there was an article arguing that God allowed 9/11 to happen because America "isn't Christian enough." I was furious and embarrassed, along with many other people.

Even though my hunch is that the article above is a hoax, the experience with my high school tells me that it may be for real.

Lay off, it's the new slang... like the Iraqs.

My research has turned up the fact that it very well could be a real article, but possibly a VERY poor attempt at satire.

It hasn't appeared on www.snopes.com yet, so I won't say it's real with 100 percent certainty.

I was under the impression it was real. Here's a site that grabbed the real Lynzee Stauss's MySpace page:

I, for one, see absolutely nothing wrong with Lynzee's choices, and I hope more young women follow in her footsteps.

I found this story about her:

Still no clue if she was trying to sound like an idiot in an attempt at humor, or if that just happened "becasue" she IS an idiot.

Aside from the fact that there is everything wrong with that article, did anybody happen to notice that the spelling of the word "disstress" is wrong? Shouldn't it be distress? ;)

This article was written by a student at Michigan State University. To make it worse, she was one of the chief editors who had much influence in the school news paper.

Here's a column I found in today's paper. The picture looks like her with a few years added. So I think she actually now has a job. http://www.shareimages.com/image.php?59766-rJuWmpygk6CnnpyXng-lindsey_6.jpg
