11 students suspended for banana prank

UPI reports that a high school in Illinois "has suspended 11 seniors involved in a prank that featured a student in a gorilla costume chasing banana-clad seniors in the hallways."

The students were suspended for 7 days. How sad to punish seniors about to graduate for doing something harmless and delightful. If I were the principal, I would have given them gold stars and a letter-grade boost in the class of their choice. Link
