ok, this just totally cracked me up. after rumors of student vampires infiltrating the school spread like wildfire, the headmaster of a boston college prep school issued an email to all the parents (and students) that there were not, actually, any vampires at their school.
here’s a snippet of the article:
Boston Latin School headmaster Lynne Mooney Teta issued a notice to parents and students yesterday quashing rumors of vampires at the school. An odd move for the head of a historic elite preparatory school, but Teta and Boston public school officials declined to elaborate on what triggered the unusual message.
They did, however, adamantly offer assurances that no one at the school has been hurt, arrested – or bitten.
“The headmaster believes that the outrageous rumors had reached a point where she had to say something to families to ensure that all students felt safe and respected,” said Chris Horan, School Department spokesman.
this just left me thinking: when you go to lengths to tell a group of teenagers that something doesn’t exist, doesn’t it usually confirm their suspicion that they were right all along, and that there’s just a cover-up?! too funny.
