In some countries, refusing to participate in a high five is an offense punishable by death. I don’t know if that’s true, but some homeless guy told me that once. In any event, Lorenzo Garcia, school superintendent in the El Paso area, wanted to give school principals high fives for the schools’ state test scores, everyone obliged, except for one: Barron Elementary School principal Mary Helen Lechuga.

Ms. Lechuga was not too fond of the move and has filed a complaint with the police, claiming she felt pain and wasn’t sure what he was going to do next. Come on, we all know what he would have done had she participated in the high five: he would have expected some skin on the flip side and that, my friends, should get you locked up for 90 days minimum.
