J’s Grill in Arlington, Texas, is not where teens go to fill up on burgers, but where they fill their mouths with bling. And the school board wants to stop them from wearing the hardware to school in an updated dress code that would also ban the “gauging” practice of poking increasingly larger objects through their earlobes. Apparently the board of ed has adjusted to tattoos and green hair. But the kids figure it’s just a form of expression and since they (or someone sick of the nagging) paid as much as $3,000 to get what is essentially a set of dentures, they should totally be allowed to wear them. “Really, a grill is just like an earring,” said one, not realizing the futility of that argument. But school officials said it was about teaching the students that life has regulations. “We want to instill in them a sense of modesty and a sense of community.” Good luck with that.
