No Flamers

Only those who attend BHS may go to X-mas ball.

Why? Because outside dates would present a "fire hazard."

Graduates=Highly flammable

P.S.: Dudes: So I'm not sure if everybody knows it, but a big part of Heise's "new sheriff in town" rebranding campaign has been a new focus on school spirit. We've started having more pep-fests, and now everybody's supposed to stand up and sing along with the school song. The words are even back up on the wall in the gym.

Anyways, here's the important part. An earlier grad has informed me that way back in the day, students had their own lyrics which they would belt out when the time came to sing. Details were sketchy, but the first line is:

Brainerd's high,
So am I

and the final line is:

So give a cheer,
Down a beer,
We're behind you Brainerd HIIIIGGGHHH!

I think it would be pretty hilarious to get everybody (or at least the seniors) singing these lyrics instead. I wonder how Heise would react...BUT: we should get some more complete lyrics. If anyone has any ideas about juvinille, stoner-y lyrics, let's hear 'em.

I suppose we could also use the old lyric for the "school spirit above the rest" part:

Brainerd High,
You're the one,
With the tomahawks gleaming in the suuuunnn!

Too bad they cut out the bridge:

The pale faces shake with fear and fright,
at the braves,
of the tribe,
of blue and white

Pity I never actually get to sing the school song. Always playing... and sadly, I don't have the damn thing memorized.

I thought it was "pale faces shake with fear and fright/ at the tribe of the blue and white"

At least that's what DB always says. Go to him for the old words.

You need the "the braves" part in there to make it fit the rhythm.

My mom, who graduated from Brainerd's then rival Little Falls, kindly mentioned that Brainerd has the same number of letters as Diarrhea. So you know that part of the song that goes, "B-R-A-I-N-E-R-d! Yeah Warriors!"? That can be substituted for "D-I-A-R-R-H-E-A! Run, Warriors, run!" Just a suggestion, don't thank me, thank Little Falls...
