OK. The dress code can make all the requests it wants. We politely decline to abide.


#4

Replace the lariat with a bowling ball


#5

Jeez… no superheroes at all ever? I has the sads. Someone needs to take the stick out of the collective school boards butt.


#6

Possibly also… mention of two(!) Greek goddesses :wink:


#7

I’m guessing they’d allow lunchboxes with images of Dick Cheney or G.W. Bush?


#8

‘We have defined “violent characters” as those who solve problems using violence.’

I certainly hope they ban all police and military imagery as well.


#9

Oh yeah, the presidential lunch box line was sssoooooo popular when I was a kid.

Seriously though. WTF is wrong with people. This sanitized wimpification just sickens me. You can have my Star WARS lunch box when you can pry if from my cold dead hands.

OH no - it has a gun on it! Lock the school DOWN!


#10
Not sure if it's the scary-looking lasso or the ass-kicking red boots......

More likely, it’s those killer boobs.


#11

When I look at that image, of an overly sexualized caricature of a woman, particularly in the context where the implied intent is to “do some violence” and all thought was blocked out by Perry Farrell whispering in my ear “Sex is violence”


#12

Do you think they don’t? I would be extremely surprised.


#13

Here’s the buried lede:

We have defined “violent characters” as those who solve problems using violence.

Local school bans police officers from campus, refuses to celebrate Veteran's Day, Memorial Day and Independence Day, removes red stripes from American Flag


#14

Not so fast with that Snoopy lunchbox, either


#15

I look forward to the Wonder Woman presidential lunchbox


#16

Captain Planet?


#17

Not to nitpick (ok, precisely to nitpick) but it would appear that the image on the lunchbox itself is not considered too violent, but the character of Wonder Woman in general is. And likewise all other superheroes. Man, that is some bullshit.


#18

If only a kid showed up with a lunchbox based on early Wonder Woman’s themes of bondage, dominance, and submission:


#19

The school wishes to maintain a total monopoly on violence. They will violently suppress any dissent, if necessary calling in armed, uniformed thugs in order to prevent dissidents from receiving any useful education. .

Seriously, that is how it plays out, 100% of the time.


#20

So no Tom & Jerry, roadrunner, Bugs Bunny, Popeye or just about any cartoon you’d care to name either?


#21

Hell, My Little Pony has some violence.
