So imagine our outrage when this came across our desk.
Apparently when University of Idaho co-eds aren’t wearing clever T-shirts, they’re rocking Idaho Scandal-ous outfits.
(Pictured right is Gov. Palin in her University of Idaho dorm room sporting a T-shirt that reads, “I May Be Broke, But I’m Not Busted.”)
The University of Idaho (stop No. 3 and 5 on Sarah Palin’s magical six-year college tour) has gone all nun on us and told the school’s cheerleaders to cover up.
Palin, the school’s most “visible” alum, is not one for censorship. So we’re sure she won’t stand for this.
My sources tell me the girls mistakenly interpreted their school name through Ebonics (I da hoe), so they dressed accordingly.
The outfits that drew controversy, halter tops and short black skirts with white trim, were similar to what an NFL cheerleader might wear, Pitman said.
Of course, there was white trim, this is Idaho people.
The outfits cost $4,200 from a spirit squad fund, part of student’s tuition paid for. New uniforms are on the way at a cost of $2,200, privately funded of course. I’m thinking the girls sent the skimpy outfits out in style via a good old fashioned cheerleader car wash.
The girls’ new uniforms will feature a less revealing halter-top and a six-inch longer skirt, though I hear it’s really only 5 1/4.
The cheerleaders are currently donning football jerseys with volleyball shorts. Though that isn’t such a great compromise for some members of the squad when you factor in the “fit” of volleyball shorts.
Part of the initial problem stemmed from complaints from some of the “healthier” girls on the pom squad. Poor girls were never given a chance. They’ve been eating potatoes for breakfast, lunch and dinner their whole lives. And any nutritionist will tell you all that starch goes straight to your ass.
The previous uniforms didn’t flatter every member of the team, and some girls said their outfits were uncomfortable, Robson said.
“Girls are just bigger these days, not everybody’s a size zero,” Robson said. “We’re not being a bunch of prudes.”
No, just buzzkilling cockblocks.
