Back-to-school season is well underway, which also means homework is once again a reality. Ugh, major bummer. But when you're a youngster, homework isn't all that bad! That's because kids make it way less boring by being straight up and honest (read: hilarious).
The leaves are green, the sun is shining. 'Tis the season of... wait for it... high school graduations. Yes, it's that time of year for the high school boys and girls to enter the real world -- the real world of college, that is. So in honor of school letting out for the summer, we've put together a round up of our favorite high school memes.
Rather than referencing 'My Little Pony' or 'Twilight,' one Texas student decided to use his chance to speak at his high school graduation to come out as gay. *Then* Mitch Anderson started making references -- to Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Zachary Quinto's eyebrows, the chorus of a Nicki Minaj song, etc.
What should've been a fun vacation trip from New York to Atlanta turned nightmarish on Monday morning when an airline kicked a group of 101 Yeshiva students and their eight chaperones off a plane for being rambunctious.

If you're a recent graduate, you might've thought for a moment or two about the legacy you've left behind. Pranks are always a good go-to in our books, but a safer, less offensive way to leave an impression on your school is through creative yearbook quotes.
In a sure sign of progress, a high school has voted two gay teens as this year's "cutest couple." It represents the first time a same-sex couple has been allowed to run in the category at Carmel High School in Carmel, New York.
You might think that a young kid who tackles a knife-wielding bully would be hailed as a hero, but you'd be wrong. In Calgary, a 13-year-old was officially reprimanded for defending a classmate who was being threatened by a thug with a weapon.
In what seems to be the latest in a disturbing trend of anti-gay sentiment directed against kids and teens, a 18-year-old Florida high school student named Kaitlyn Hunt has been expelled and faces criminal charges for having a consensual relationship with another student of the same sex.
In a tacit admission that Brooklyn has become hopelessly overrun by hipsters, a Jewish Orthodox school in Borough Park recently banned the wearing of "thick plastic eyeglasses" among its student body. No word on whether skinny jeans or lumberjack shirts are next.
