What have they done to the nickel?

A story in the Dallas paper yesterday tells of a Keller school that is really trying to make a statement with this year's yearbook. On the cover of the book is an enlarged picture of a nickel, complete with freakishly huge profile of Thomas Jefferson. What is missing however are the words that are usually seen on a five cent piece.
"May the Force be with you" is NOT the phrase I am referring to.
These wise school officials have decided to excise the words, "In God we trust" from the picture of the nickel. Sure, we wouldn't want to offend anybody, by say, having our pictures be accurate and/or representative of real coinage. But Christians, fear not! For inside the yearbook, there is a peel-off decal containing the offensive words, so anybody who so chooses can restore the nickel to its original glory.
I'm not sure, but I heard a rumor that the engraving of Jefferson might be next to go. Some people are still offended that Jefferson had slaves on his plantation, and to appease those people, Jefferson's picture will be digitally erased. I'm sure there will be a corresponding decal on the inside of the yearbook for those purists still out there...
According to my sources, some of the students at this school are making a push to have a certain American History teacher's picture removed from the faculty pages. Oh, and also little Jimmy Snodgrass in Mrs. Hooper's class -- he didn't make the cut. But no doubt there will be decals to make up for their exclusions.
Way to go Keller school! You're setting the groundwork for the future realization of a "build your own yearbook." YOU choose the pictures, the people, and the events to be remembered! Someone wouldn't be your friend at recess? Don't put them in your yearbook! That girl who wouldn't share her juice in the cafeteria -- OUT! Always irritated with the letter "w?" Don't aste your time ith it!! As long as you always include the letters PC in your vocabulary, you can make a case for anything.
(Wow, I really went off on a tangent this time...)

Arg! Don't you dare mention this to my students--they'd take you seriously!

I don't understand if the school officials thought it might be controversial (with or without the "In God We Trust) why they didn't CHOOSE A DIFFERENT COVER?!

Some people are just itchin' to be on national news...

Mister Teacher said...

No kidding! They could've saved themselves all of this trouble and strife just by choosing a different cover -- like a picture of a quarter, or a penny, or even a freaking Susan B. Anthony dollar! Then they wouldn't be HAVING this problem!

Oh wait...

Mrs. T said...

Do you think maybe they'll market little mini "in God we trust" stickers for the REAL nickels?

Mister Teacher said...

If they do, the stickers will probably cost 10 cents...

Unfreakinbelievable!!! (it is to a word!) I am Christian so my point won't make any difference, but even if I weren't, I wouldn't care if it had "In God We Trust" on it. It's not like the real nickels didn't have it...if they chose the nickel, they should have just left it...

How far are we going to allow the PC world to take over???? (This just burns me up!)
