So Oklahoma’s Prague High School valedictorian hasn’t gotten her diploma yet because she used the word “hell” instead of “heck” in her speech. Apparently the version of the speech she submitted had “heck.” But when she delivered the speech, she said “hell.”
Now the poor offended school officials want her to apologize. Supposedly she blurted the word out accidentally, spur of the moment style. But even if she changed it purposely, who could have imagined the poop-storm that would ensue? It boggles the mind that the word “hell” would elicit such a harsh response in the year 2012. It is also silly that she hasn’t just sucked it up and written the silly apology. But perhaps the most ironic aspect of this whole story is that the Prague High School mascot is the Red Devils.
