Here’s another story from our “not the Onion” file.
A principled principal in a New Jersey high school has apologized to black students for the distribution of prom tickets that had a line on them telling students to “party like it’s 1776.”
The non-hilarious joke was a reference to Prince’s hit song, Party Like It’s 1999,” and also geared toward the fact than the prom was being held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. So, you know, a history joke (combined with a bad dad joke).
In a letter posted Friday on Twitter, Cherry Hill East High School Principal Dennis Perry said he was “writing to apologize for the hurt feeling this reference caused for members of our school family.”
