Schools spend a lot of time, money and energy trying to get students to make good choices and behave in socially acceptable ways. It is fascinating to see all the different tactics from Pillars of Character to mascots to rewards programs. Sometimes, though, what i'm sure must have been a great idea gets lost in translation. Take this poster for instance:
We all agree that it is generally a good idea to keep hands, feet and other objects to ourselves, buuuuuuut why are all of those letters capitalized? Normally that indicates an acronym. What the heck does khfooty mean?
Does it have something to do with that crazy little super hero dude?
Look at his hands on his hips.
He's supremely happy with himself.
Perhaps khfooty is his super power?
Maybe his name is Khfooty? Kaptain Khfooty?
Or mayhaps his battle cry of KHFOOTY can be heard ringing through the hallways as he rushes in to combat the dreaded he's-touching-me-she's-touching-me-he's-touching-me.
Whatever it is, this poster has been in this school's cafeteria for at least 3 years and it still reduces me to giggles every time i see it.
