Once again, the term “streak” is being misused in the news media, as a group of Canadian high school cheerleaders are in semi-trouble for stripping down to their underwear and spraying the opposing football team with silly string. Apparently it’s a school tradition or something.
Twelve female high school students sporting only their underwear and duct tape around their breasts ran across a football field during their school team’s home game last week in Delta, B.C. The [school's] principal [said] he doesn’t want to see a repeat of the prank and has issued warnings to the Grade 12 students, most of them cheerleaders of the home team.
“We don’t take it lightly. This is a school. [In] schools, we hold higher ideals than we do in, say, the mall,” Ted Johnson told CBC News in an interview.
That’s obviously a lot of BS. If there were a mall where the high school girls only wore underwear and duct tape, I’m pretty sure I’d know about it. And live there.
