4. Me too

From a guy who thinks:
- it is good fun to impersonate police to scare people.
- no one would remember pinning some guy down and cutting their hair.
- placing a dog on top of the roof of a car.

7. I also read something about walking a blind instructor into a door?

but it didn't have a link. Would like to know more about that one.

Hateful, unfunny bastard he is.

On a side note - what mountain graces your profile pic? I want to move to the Kalispell area in a couple of years. I fell in love with Montana, deep and hard.

11. Here's a WaPo piece on the bullying, including the blind teacher

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/mitt-romneys-prep-school-classmates-recall-pranks-but-also-troubling-incidents/2012/05/10/gIQA3WOKFU_story_2.html


One venerable English teacher, Carl G. Wonn­berger, nicknamed “the Bat” for his diminished eyesight, was known to walk into the trophy case and apologize, step into wastepaper baskets and stare blindly as students slipped out the back of the room to smoke by the open windows. Once, several students remembered the time pranksters propped up the back axle of Wonnberger’s Volkswagen Beetle with two-by-fours and watched, laughing from the windows, as the unwitting teacher slammed the gas pedal with his wheels spinning in the air.

As an underclassman, Romney accompanied Wonnberger and Pierce Getsinger, another student, from the second floor of the main academic building to the library to retrieve a book the two boys needed. According to Getsinger, Romney opened a first set of doors for Wonnberger, but then at the next set, with other students around, he swept his hand forward, bidding the teacher into a closed door. Wonnberger walked right into it and Getsinger said Romney giggled hysterically as the teacher shrugged it off as another of life’s indignities.

14. we had a blind principal at our Jr. High. and NO ONE ever pranked the guy.

There were the jokes "watch out Mr. Schmidt will see you!" but no one was ever that cruel. We helped him out, mostly. Sheesh what a jerk romney is.

6. Tarring and feathering, if I'm not mistaken, a yellow dog?

As in "yellow dog Democrat", possibly? (Or perhaps I'm looking for too much subtlety.)

12. You are probably right.

The New Yorker can be very subtle. Thanks for pointing it out.

9. The tar helps them stick better to the roof of the car,

and the feathers look nice blowin' in the wind.
