I think it’s safe to say that pretty much every high school has some weird stuff going on…
I mean, they kind of have to, right?
A bunch of kids are thrown together for roughly seven hours every day, so you know things are bound to get wild.
Let’s get weird with some folks from Twitter!
1. How’d that happen?
One time a swim meet was canceled at my friend’s high school because the pool “caught on fire.” Still have no idea how that’s possible. #MyHighSchoolWasWeird

2. This is amazing.

3. Kiss the cow.
My Junior year of high school there was a competition for one of the teachers to kiss a cow. Of course the most disliked teacher ended up kissing the cow. #MyHighSchoolWasWeird

4. Listen up, Sister.
Save those dimes.
All-girls Catholic HS in Brooklyn a zillion years ago. Penny loafers were part of our uniforms, so we put pennies in them. The nuns said, “No!” So, we put dimes in instead. Told the nuns we needed them for a pay phone emergency. #MyHighSchoolWasWeird

5. It sure does.
I wonder if that was on purpose.

That’s not funny.
My science teacher was convicted of a double murder during summer break. I wish I was kidding!

7. A lot got done there, huh?
Big achievers at this school!
My high School was called Start. The student motto for it was Start High Stay High#MyHighSchoolWasWeird

8. Safety first.
Well, it sounds like they knew what they were doing.
In the 60’s during hunting season Sept-Jan many young men brought their guns to school because they would hunt b4 and after school.
Gun racks were common place and no one got shot. pic.twitter.com/Mm8rFMcUS2

9. No dancing!
Was it the town from Footloose?
We did not have a prom because dancing was evil and could lead to premarital sex.

10. This is wild.
Doesn’t add up…
I went there a New York City public high school in the late sixties. It had a swimming pool. For some reason no bathing suits allowed. Nude swim. For 2 years 75 naked boys playing naked water polo. I knew girls were allowed suits in their class. Asked why. “Health reasons!”

11. Grossed out!
And the bandit was never caught…
My high school had the mayonnaise bandit who would put mayo on the under side of the stair railings from the cafeteria making them useless or risk getting a handful of slimy mayonnaise on your way to class #MyHighSchoolWasWeird
