Photo @Revisdead/Twitter As if getting dressed for high school wasn’t tough enough already, for some students in Staten Island, N.Y., wearing summer’s hottest trends — crop tops, cutoff shorts, and flip-flops — could mean detention slips. For the 2014-15 school year, which started on Sept. 4, Tottenville High School in New York City implemented new stringent rules that prohibit girls from wearing shorts or skirts that don’t extend past the students’ fingertips when they have their arms down at their sides, low-cut or midriff-bearing shirts, leggings, skinny jeans, and more. This directive, called “Dress for Success,” says “students do have the right to determine their own dress except where such dress is dangerous or interferes with the learning and teaching process,” according to a statement from Superintendent Aimee Horowitz. To dispute the dress code, many teen girls at Tottenville High School are wearing overtly revealing outfits. About 90 percent of the detentions due to dress code violations have been issued to female students, the Post reports. First-time offenders receive a warning, but a second infraction warrants a phone call home to parents, who are then asked to bring replacement clothes for their kid. Or if the parent or guardian is unavailable to do so, the student will be provided appropriate clothing. While the dress code applies to the entire student body — hats, bandanas, hoodies, sunglasses, do-rags, earplugs, headphones, spiked jewelry, muscle shirts, and wallet chains, are also on the list of banned apparel and accessories — many have balked at the decree for being blatantly sexist.
It never has.

So far (at least as far as I can tell from watching clips on YouTube and seeing gifsets like this one), John Oliver and the team of Last Week Tonight have a flawless record. They have been consistently on point on every topic they have discussed, and doing a far better job at informing viewers as to what the fuck shit means than the MSM does while also being entertaining as fuck! This show is fucking brilliant, and I think some of that is likely due to Oliver’s conscious attempt to have a (relatively) diverse writing staff.
The family business…
IS THAT ADAM IN THE CAGE
I bet John is a zero coke because that’s the number of fucks he gave about his children.
oh look, they’re all empty inside
WAS THAT NECESSARY
I am dead at Adam.
Also, Adam isn’t empty! Also, I like how Sams name is the same color as johns because he was always more like their dad but deans name is white with red around it because he always tried to be like their dad but never really was.
