When the TV news flashed the story of Saginaw High School cheerleaders who mixed their own urine into sodas and fed it to their teammates at a school basketball game, the entire DFW metroplex was grossed out. Many of us in Lake Highlands, however, had a clear picture of the resulting chaos. We’ve seen it before. Local reporters holding microphones with the school’s entry as a backdrop. TV station trucks parked on campus for days. Office watercooler jibes focused on one negative event at the neighborhood school.

Dallas Morning News columnist Jacquielynn Floyd was the first to recall in print the comparison many of us were mentally making to LH’s notorious Muffin Men – though she calls them Boys, a more fitting moniker. Just when we thought we’d lived that incident down, another reminder pops up. Her column, "Saginaw cheerleaders, meet pot muffin boys" is here.

If you’ve been living in a cave, in May of 2006 Bishop Lynch senior Ian Walker sauntered into the LHHS teachers’ lounge with marijuana-laced muffins, and by day’s end several staff members were in the Presbyterian Hospital ER. Walker and co-conspirator Joey Tellini, a senior at LHHS, faced criminal charges and talk show host Conan O’Brien jokingly reported that the LH Bake Sale made millions. For the first time, I’m glad Conan’s not on the air – I can’t imagine what he’d have to say about pee-spiked sodas. Yuck. Here’s hoping the cheerleaders’ stunt becomes the new reference point for stupid pranks. Go Saginaw!
