Yearbook Message Gets Chemical Reaction

Yearbook Message Gets Chemical Reaction

A Georgia high school student got an "F" from her principal for proving she deserved "A" grades in both English and chemistry – by combining those classes for an R-rated yearbook message.

Paris Gray, senior class vice-president at Mundy's Mill High, was suspended from school and told she could not deliver her commencement speech as scheduled -- because she used the periodic table to spell out a tongue-in-cheek comment. She wrote "When the going gets tough just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus," symbols that, when strung together, read "Back That Ass Up." [Warning: language]

Gray insists she meant no harm, and intended to deliver a positive message, but as of now, administrators are not seeing it her way. (UPI)
