The class of 2015 of Chopticon High School came up with a pretty unique idea: release 72,000 ladybugs into their school.
Several of the seniors broke into the school around 3A.M. to release the bugs for the next school day. While investigating, authorities identified seven suspects, including two who waited in the car while the others went inside the school.

Here’s the real kicker: Four of the suspected ‘buggers’, all of whom are juvenile males, were charged with 4th degree burglary, property destruction under $1,000 and disruption of school activities. The remaining three suspects, all adult males, will be charged by criminal summons. And so far, one will not be allowed to walk across the stage for said graduation. My first question was “Where do you get 72,000 ladybugs?” And of course the answer is Amazon.
Our new mascot should be the ladybug. Chopticon High School: Home of the Ladybugs.

Students have been protesting to allow the student to walk, but only time will tell if they will be successful.

My advice? Make sure there aren’t any ‘bugs’ in your plan and everything should go smoothly (heh?).
