The Salute

I got a call from the school today.  Apparently Landis had been riding in the back of the bus this morning, and was busily entertaining himself - and perhaps other kids too - by flipping the bird to the driver in the bus behind them. 

Word on the street was that he'd informed another student "not to worry" because she (the other driver) couldn't see him. 

But she could.


Which, as one would assume, won him a front-row seat in the Principal's office. 
He explained himself by stating that he was just giving the "Hunger Games Sign" so the driver was probably confused.

That explains it, don't you think?

Because this:

TOTALLY looks like this:
See how easy it is to mistake one for the other?
I mean....good effort though.  I admire his quick thinking while his butt is in the hot seat.  Which is why Mike is the one who has to deal with this.  Because I've been trying all afternoon to stop cracking up about it, but I am totally immature.  And kids flipping the bird is funny.  And I know if he comes at me with the whole "Hunger Games Salute" there is no way on God's green earth that I can keep a straight face.  
Carry on, my friends.  I salute you.
