Bryan got suspended for trying to have a little harmless fun. See how a news reporter made everything right.

You cannot currently send a star to Terry because you have done so within the last week.

Thanks J.L. for the link and to you Terry for your video link. The reporter. Pat Collins absolutely was wonderful. Viewed and noted.

With all the really bad stuff going on at schools these days I think Bryan deserves an apology from the school. He was trying to give people a laugh in an entirely harmless way. Llighten up folks. Good tack by the reporter to show the stupidity of the disciplinary action. Fruit salad during half-time sounds like fun.

ROTFLMAO!!!!! I went to work dressed as a pumpkin with my pudgy legs hanging out. I made an asparagus costume for another person in the office. My punishment --- I had to go into the dunk tank at the staff picnic about a week later. On both days, my boss was laughing so hard that he damn near peed his pants!

Loved the reporter! The kid and Collins deserve a medal for trying to put life in perspective for a lot of folks.

I very much appreciate Mr. Collins wearing the bunch of grapes outfit during the interview, God bless him. I'm very sorry that the banana costume was thought to warrant a suspension. Of all the things that go on these days....I'm glad that the young man seems to understand the nature of the misled punishment and hasn't taken it too much to heart (I hope).

Stars sent where I could, but I'm told it's too soon for you John and Lynn.

What an idiotic school system. I even question the mother for punishing this child; she should not have given in to a harmless, silly nothing.
