Allentown, PA - Members of the Allentown High School Linux Users
Group (LUG) suspects the yearbook staff of several slights including
making them look “dorky” in their group picture.
“Those guys have it out for us,” said LUG President
Stephen McCall. “How else would you explain how dorky we look
in that picture? I bet they used Photoshop on their Macs to do it.”
McCall also complained about being put on the same page as the Chess Club,
and misspelling Srinath Gutamatharishibatola’s name in one caption. “What,
they don’t have a spell checker for OS X?” he laughed.
Yearbook Staff and Student Council representative, Davin Semke denied
any wrongdoing. “We’re not jealous of them being ahead
of us in SETI units like I’ve heard people say. We don’t
care about that. We just want to make the best yearbook that this
school has ever seen, so we can remember the best years of our lives
Semke continued, “And yeah, we use Macs. Apple based OS X
on Unix, so I’m not sure why these guys think we don’t
Teacher Consultant Mrs. Habert encouraged the sides to “talk
it out” and said that she didn’t want to see any more
apples with knives through them left in the yearbook room any more.
Members of the AV Club said that their group photo also made them
look a bit goofier than normal, but wrote it off as bad developing
until the LUG’s suspicions became public. One of the AV Club
student members said he might give the yearbook staff the “bad” VCR
the next time they ask for one.
Principal Evans could not be reached for comment.
