Real Life Avi: Captain Underpants Costume Banned
As most readers of this blog know, I'm all for, like, free speech and everything, but why does this story strike me as a real-life version of Avi's Nothing But The Truth?
Three 17-year-old girls were told to leave Long Beach High School on Wednesday after they showed up on Superhero Day costumed as the subject of the best-selling children's books.
"I didn't know which superhero it was, not that it mattered," said Principal Nicholas Restivo.
The girls depicted this superhero — who has battled, among other things, talking toilets and the infamous Professor Poopypants — by wearing beige leotards and nude stockings under white briefs and red capes.
"Yes, I know they weren't naked," Restivo said. "But the appearance was that they were naked."
