Boy wears green paint, gets pinched anyway

leave a comment »

CLEVELAND – A fifteen-year-old boy was pinched relentlessly today by his classmates despite his repeated pleas that his grotesque green face paint made him exempt from such treatment.

The boy, Michael Callahan, said that he began receiving unfavorable attention upon his arrival at school Tuesday morning. “Some kids were like, ‘Dude, you look like a Gothic oompa-loompa!'” Callahan told the Daily Debacle.  Callahan’s said his classmates were unfazed in their taunting even after he explained the paint was just his way of expressing pride for St. Patrick’s Day.

“I wasn’t able to convince them.  They told me zombies weren’t welcome on St. Patrick’s Day,”  Callahan said. His classmates reportedly pinched Callahan a total of eighty-five times on the right arm and four times on the left leg.  They also filled his gym locker with Wonka bar wrappers.

Despite the harsh treatment, Callahan said he will continue to wear bold colors in the future.   For Easter he plans to dress as a “pink gothic bunny” and wear a live rattlesnake as a necklace.
