The Bishop McGuinness Yearbook Stickers Have Arrived!

A few weeks ago, we broke the story about Bishop McGuinness High School including a quote that's commonly attributed to Adolf Hitler in the 2017 yearbook. To make matters worse, the quote was "coincidentally" located beneath a quote by Holocaust victim Anne Frank. Here's the photo in case you need to refresh your memory or roll your eyes:

After we published the story, we were alerted to a letter that McGuinness President David Morton sent to parents and students. He apologized for the gaffe, took responsibility, and announced the school would be mailing stickers home to students to place over the quote. We've acquired a photo of the sticker via one of our McGuinness Moles. Check it out:

Yep, that's it. It's just a blank sticker with the student's name on it. (Note: We blurred the name.) Kind of boring, huh? I'm admittedly not an expert when it comes to designing stickers to cover up Hitler quotes like they never happened, but I was hoping they'd go with a bedazzled cartoon leprechaun jumping over a rainbow that ends in a pot of gold. You know, something fun that will make students forget they're covering up a quote that's attributed to history's most infamous mass murderer.

Here's the letter that accompanied the sticker:

Mr. Morton was right about one thing: the colors do blend nicely. Out of the 50 shades of grey, they picked the right one. Also, let's be positive. At least McGuinness students are learning a valuable lesson from all this – mistakes can be easily ignored and forgotten if you place a sticker over them.
