A weird little tale.
  1. In 6th grade, I was living in Southern CA.
    A sunny place. Not too far from Disneyland. We went there fairly often- it was way cheaper back in the day, and hey, 20 min drive, so, cool.
  2. For 6th grade graduation, our school trip was going to be a day at Disneyland!
    It was going to be SO RAD to go with friends, not like, a single friend or maybe two and a parent. The whole class! Shenanigans on a grand scale!!
  3. But one day...
    (You knew something had to be up...)
  4. This kid. Joe. A real piece of work.
    The one who could not NOT be a rude douchcanoe every chance he got. To anyone, for no reason at all. That guy.
  5. Picks a fight at lunch. Right in the middle of the cafeteria, over...nothing?
    With a lunk-ish but generally nice enough kid who had a lot of similar friends. Yes, they went on to form our high school football team, why do you ask?
  6. Which erupted into a damn brawl.
    Every girl in the class scattered while nearly every boy in our class got sucked into the tornado of mostly-ineffectual kicking, punching, and (lots of) yelling.
  7. The teachers and vice principal broke it up.
    Sent us back to our classrooms to sit with heads on desks to await our fate.
  8. They called us out together and revealed our punishment:
    Class dance: cancelled. Field day: cancelled. Some other miscellaneous items: cancelled, but could be redeemed with Good Behavior...
  9. DISNEYLAND: CANCELLED 😳
    No option for redemption. And we all knew: it was Joe's fault. Joe became anathema.
  10. Souls crushed, we soldiered on. 😜
    Went on to 7th grade. The kid vanished, and even I, a quiet nerd who didn't stand out but had been selected a few times for his harassment, was glad for it.
  11. Then one day...
    Much, much later.
  12. Readin' the news online.
    Doot de do. (There's internets now!)
  13. That icky Girls Gone Wild video thing apparently was the spawn of one guy?
    And he's in like, a buttload of trouble. (Not exactly surprising, tho. 🙄 Because, ew.)
  14. Wait.
    It couldn't be...? Of COURSE it could though...
  15. Google positively confirms...
    JOE FUCKING FRANCIS THAT GOT OUR DISNEYLAND TRIP CANCELLED GREW UP TO BE A SCUZZY GARBAGE HEAP WHO ASSAULTS WOMEN AND SOLICITS UNDERAGE GIRLS UNDER THE FLIMSY GUISE OF "SHE SAID SHE WAS 18."
  16. *click* (That's the sound of the universe just ~making so much sense~.)
    Yeah, sounds 100% on target, tbh.
  17. I guess he has an extradition warrant out on some federal charges now?
  18. Go to hell, Joe. ☠️🖕🏼🔥
    And not *just* for the Disneyland thing. 💩
