I’d have paid good money to see this . . .

I can’t help laughing at the cheek of a high school graduate in North Carolina this week.

A senior from Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville will not receive his diploma after stripping down to his underwear at his graduation ceremony.

. . .

Just after his name was called [Quinton Murphy] paused on stage and threw off his cap and gown revealing his leopard-print tight underwear. Superintendent Till and other dignitaries were caught on camera with surprised faces.

There’s more at the link.

I bet their faces were surprised!  It was a silly thing to do, but he’s for sure going to be remembered by his fellow students.  I daresay the nearest Marine Corps recruiter was thinking, “Maybe I’d better call that young man . . . we can use him!”



  1. Not sure the recruiter would want him. No sense of respect, tradition, or decorum. It's another kid who thinks it all about him, all the time. No, thanks.

  2. Oh, I don't know, Rolf. After all, Uncle Sam's Misguided Children are known as such for a reason . . .


  3. How can they not give him his diploma? If he passed he earned it. I can see not giving it to him there and mailing it to him, but not denying him his diploma. I think it would have been easier to just give him his diploma and ignore thathe did anything unusual.
