A Georgia high school students clever use of the periodic table may cost her a seat at graduation.
The senior class vice president used the names of elements in her yearbook quote that when abbreviated to their atomic symbol spell out, Back that ass up.
When the going gets tough just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus, Paris Gray wrote.
School administrators, however, did not find the mash-up funny. They slapped her with an in-school suspension, barred her from participating in the annual senior walk and may even take away her privilege of speaking at graduation.

I think it’s funny. She might be the only student who knows how to read the periodic table.
Er, except for the spelling.
Yes, what’s Utranium?
Yes, what’s Utranium?
Oh good grief. Suspend the Admin, not the kid.
The resistor code was “bad boys rape our young girls but violet gives willingly.” I was about to tell a tech how to remember it at a recent job and then choked to a stop, as it would have been a write-up offense at the very least.
Well, she should have known she’s get a reaction.
It’s the distant cousin to Phospheros.
The spelling is not as good as would have been expected of my peers in grade school. We might have had to refer to a dictionary or textbook. They have Google.
She showed creativity and intelligence, that threatens the future of marxism in America.
Is Back that ass up something about Moochelle? I don’t entirely get it.
That was pretty clever though maybe she could have chosen a better message. I am guessing she did not come up with the idea on her own. And I am guessing that the yearbook sponsor is not educated enough to recognize a coded message and thus missed the word ASS. I doubt there are more than ten people in the graduating class who would have figured out the message.
I’d be more concerned with the yearbook editor for inserting spelling errors.
Further evidence of the decline of our civilization.
That is really clever. The girl will do well. She is creative, smart and clever.
People have totally lost their sense of humor.
I also have no idea how constipation can help one through tough times.
I've always wondered if anyone ever noticed it. We were seniors, and the yearbook didn't come out until way after graduation, so it wasn't like either of us could point it out to very many people.
