CRT: Crap Repeated Together


Edmond granny shouts, “Fire them all if they say ‘Bundy!’” What about if they say, “Gundy?”

Or “Hump Day” or “Hey Day” or “Have a good day” or “Holiday Day?”

It seems Granny’s fourth grade granddaughter came home “one day” and told Granny her class is discussing “Bundy” which led Granny to show up Nov. 1 at the Edmond School Board meeting and demand that “All of you should be fired.”

Not having anything else to do, this caused the district’s superintendent to write a letter to the public explaining that a fourth grade boy in the same class said “Gundy” – most likely referring to either or both of the two Gundys who coach football at OU and OSU.

Or, heaven forbid, the child might have even said Bundy, since last week was Halloween and there is no doubt a man named Bundy was a horror decades ago to several women, and for the entire nation, when he went on a murderous cross-country trip leading to the horrible death of his many female victims.

Bundy, Gundy, Monday, Sunday! Whatever. After watching the Edmond Granny wave her arms around, almost foam at the mouth, scream at the top of her more than adequate lungs and generally make a complete fool of herself, I think I would rather have a cup of coffee with the real Bundy than her.

Maybe this is the kind of communication newly-elected Virginia Gov. Youngkin is demanding between parents – or in this case Granny – and their kids without interference or provocations from the foul-mouthed, dirty-minded, sadism-promoting teachers apparently so prevalent in Oklahoma’s third largest school district.

Also, at least with Granny as self-appointed classroom censor, I’ll bet no one will dare to say any words at all if they contain the letters C-R-T.

What a relief. As everybody knows those three letters stand for “Crap Repeated Together” and no one wants our kids doing that!

P.S. Since there is another vacancy on our State Board of Education it appears to me Granny is perfect for the job. What do you say, Kevin?

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
