Another Great Moment in Zero Tolerance

With a happy ending, courtesy of Stacy McCain: Nerd Jokes in Georgia
The yearbook quote that got Mundy’s Mill High School senior Paris Gray in trouble was actually kind of clever, if you’re into rap music and the periodic table of elements. Maybe not as clever as the Nine Sexiest Words, but still clever, and if kids are making chemistry jokes, they’re probably doing OK in school. So I’m glad the school decided that she can still speak at graduation.
Paris Gray
From the original article:
Paris Gray, upstanding vice president of her about-to-graduate high-school class in Jonesboro, Georgia, was suspended last Friday when administrators figured out what her yearbook quote meant. It read:

When the going gets tough, just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus.
BaCK ThAt AsS UP: Apparently a lyric to a rap song, which I would have no clue about...
