John: Hey Mary, long time no see. Aren't you excited to finally be in high school next year?
Mary: Actually, I'm not going to Avondale High School. I'll be at either Marian, Troy, or Notre Dame next year. There is no way my parents would ever let me go to that ghetto high school.
John: Really? I'm excited to go to Avondale High School next year. Especially because alumni tell me it prepares you for the real world. You learn how to comfortably deal with all types of people. Furthermore, I can't wait to become involved. There are just so many opportunities to give back. Even better, when I graduate my head won't be stuck up my ass like yours is. Have fun next year though.
Mary: You sound excited. Be careful and look out for those black Pontiac kids, they might shoot you.
John: *Sighs* Oh ignorance, if you only knew.
