In a surprise move, the Topeka School Board voted to allow girls to take Automotive Repair courses at the high school. Of course, this startling attempt at social progress in a red state came with a few restrictions. The girls had to perform all class exercises whilst wearing heels, and they were forced to don unattractive attire so that the boys in the class would not become overheated along with the cars. Despite this obvious inequality and the apparent lack of a decent hairstylist in all of Topeka, the young woman on the lower left seems to be having an exceptionally good time.
Happy Reclining Gal: “I never knew that handling lug nuts could be so much fun!”
Unhappy Squatting Girl: “Could we hurry up and take the picture, please? I dropped my dignity in the oil pan and I need to fish it out.”
Unhappy Hood-Straddling Girl: “Yes, let’s get this done. I don’t normally stay bent over this long unless somebody bought me dinner.”
Secretly-Happy Standing Girl: “Oh, don’t rush things on my account. In fact, could we rev the engine again? I don’t know why, but it makes me feel really tingly and flushed.”
Photographer: “Okay, got it. Wait. Aw, dang. We have to take it again. Unhappy Squatting Girl is showing too much ankle and they’ll never run this in the school paper.”
