Well.. this is a funny story. Well…. maybe not so funny.
We taught in Cumberland from 1995-2001. Round about 1997, a student came in with the name Lash.He had come from Argyle Secondary School, my old high school. He had a Mohawk. By Wednesday he had convinced several of the red neck country boys to also don a Mohawk. He convinced a group of students to go out on the back field and sacrifice a rabbit, carrying a bloody rabbits’ paw in their pocket. He told young girls to use the Bible pages as toilet paper. This power of this one boy was remarkable.
By Friday afternoon, he was expelled from the school. Monday morning, the redneck boys showed up with their Mohawks, and apparently Elvis, their leader, had left the building. So now what?
What a strange week that was!
