For years now, even after most forms of segregation have ended in the American south, Rebel Yell HS in Assburn, GA has continued the practice of a segregated prom 2007 will be remembered as the year the prom was finally integrated.
Principal and Baptist Minister of the Assburn Conservative baptist Church and Carwash ("Baptize your soul while we wash your vehicle") Billy Joe Sole-Hardon admitted he was reluctant to approve the change: "We suthenas don't cotton to change. . . My granddaddy and his daddy and ma daddy danced at a unintuhgraytid promanade. The school board meeting got purty ugly with the innuendoes 'bout rubbin' mo dhan showduhs wit those not ur kin'. Don't get me wrong our assburn is loaded with Chrishtan fowk. But as I sed, Change comes slow down hea!"
Student Council President and lead advocate fo the integrated prom, Billy Joe Sole-HardonII said that things got pretty tense at home when Daddy found out that not only would the prom be integrated but so too would his son's date."The main reason I fought for the mixed prom was to be able to take my beloved Tawana Houghs out in public as my girlfriend. Having a prom where you can bring whoever you want without following those old rules is what America is about. Freedom! The freedom to not have to date your own family members! Finally a prom with a non-incestuous theme", Billy II declared pumping his fist in the air and letting out a rebel yell.
When we questioned his pappy about the controversy, the minister flashed a sly grin showing a picket fence of amber whites with a few slats missing: 'What makes that boy think the Houghs and the Hardons have never intugratid befo" now?!"
