The presence of hundreds of restless hormonal teens is the perfect storm for unverified gossip, so most high schools are oceans full of swirling rumors.
While the effects of rumors can be downright cruel during your teen years, looking back at the gossip of yesterday can be cathartic and hilarious. Teens will spin a story with no evidence or logic in order to entertain themselves, consequences be damned, and it's nothing if not amusing to dissect.
Current and former students jumped on a popular Reddit thread to share the stupidest rumors that spread at their high school, and these are really above and beyond.
That I jerked off my dad (the principal) with Crisco. So ridiculous. So specific.
The three girls bullying me spread two rumours simultaneously about me.
Girl A and B decided to tell everyone I was a slut who had 8 boyfriends at one time. Girl C told everyone I was a virgin.
I guess Girl C had missed the previous week's board meeting.
