Supreme Court Considers Bong Hits

The Supreme Court has heard arguments in the case of an Alaska teen who was punished by his school principal for displaying a 14-foot “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” banner at a school-sponsored Olympic torch parade. Morse v. Frederick, as the case is known, could be a definitive ruling on the free speech rights of public school students. Unsurprisingly, career moral crusader Ken Starr is arguing against the students speech rights, and is opposed by a strange coalition which includes the ACLU, Christian conservatives and a gay rights group. Jesus has yet to comment on the issue, citing “official X-Box duties.”

  1. Niedermeyer says:

    Yeah, I thought at the time that “upholds” sounded like something you could do with a bong rip. I swear it was funny at the time… I’ve changed it, though.

    Danimal: you think it’s just a coincidence that it’s called “the highest court in the land”?

  2. Danimal says:

    No matter what they decide, the First Amendment isn’t going to start protecting bong hits. I think Neidermeyer’s title was actually referring to Scalia’s legendary annual “Highbeas Tokus” party at Easthampton.

    Why did you title this post as if the Supreme Court has already decided? LIttle misleading, dontcha think?
