Monroeville, PA - High school Senior Jared Blanks was surprised
that he earned a beating from the "cool kids" with his
report on the many humorous quotes from Monty Python. "Usually
it's just some teasing, or maybe a punch in the shoulder, but this
time it was a downright beating. I got a bloody lip and everything,
I'm very impressed. I didn't think my report was that good," said
geek, he like really deserved the beating for that one," said
Eric Taylor. "His report on the differences between C and C++
last week was close to beating material, but not quite. This week
with the fake British accent and that lumberjack
song, he really earned it."
English teacher Mr. Franks said, "I would've given him a B+,
but when the cool kids suggested a beating I thought that was a better
idea. There's nothing more annoying than a geek reciting Monty
Python quotes. Well, except for having to teach these kids
7 hours a day, 8 months a year."
Jared, who has seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail 27 times, plans
on attending Carnegie Mellon University in the fall and majoring
in Computer Science. "I'm really gonna miss the jocks
and cool kids around here. I hear at CMU they actually give
you good grades for things like this. I'm worried I may go
soft without the beatings."
