"We Doan Need No Ejjucatin"; South Carolina Ed.

Publix grocery in Charleston censored 'Summa Cum Laude' on graduation cake.

To be fair, the number of people who work at the local Publix who have graduated with honors from anywhere is probably a very small number.

I guess "Summa Come Laude" would have been better.

And yet they probably had no trouble celebrating Dick Trickle's career.

IF all else fails, Google is your friend if you think something is naughty.

No excuse for this at all.

Likely they'd have to Google Dick Trickle as well....That was a long time ago.
Cheap shot. Shows your character.

Still looking for the cheap shot...

Funnier given the name, “Publix”. Not true Latin or such, but is kinda ironic.

CP: cheap shot's in the header, but you don't wanna see it

B said...

Actually I was referring to the Dick Trickle comment, but there is some truth to the headline as well.

Are you mad because you didn’t have a cheap shot in return?

Comrade Misfit said...

People, people. Be kind to one another.

B said...

DA: Nope, not mad. Didn't think that there was a good reason for another cheap shot. But that didn't mean that the first one wasn't cheap and should not have been called out. It was pretty condescending, really.

Tossing cheap shots back is for kids. Calling them out is more productive.

I guess you don’t like race car drivers?

Let’s see, NASCAR country, seems a reasonable comment to me about Mr. Trickle...

As for the headline, South Carolina was recently ranked last for education. Mainly a factor of truly terrible math and reading scores, seems like a reasonable comment too.

I guess being a “real Ammurican” includes being a ❄️ these days.
