A rhyme with a math problem isn’t so innocent, or at least the administration of a Union City, Michigan, high school thinks so.

The Union City High School class of 2015 was suspended Monday for wearing shirts that read “The girls are hot, the boys are fine, we’re the class of 6+9.”

“Our class is like the joking class, so we wanted it to be funny and represent us,” junior Mickaylah Briggs told WXMI.

The school got the last laugh, forbidding the students to wear the shirts due to “potential sexual innuendo.” The administration had previously allowed the students to buy them, but after everyone turned in their money, the school reversed its decision and deemed the shirts inappropriate.

One student decided to wear the shirt anyway Friday and was suspended, so the rest of the class showed solidarity and all wore their shirts Monday. The administration waited for everyone to walk into the school, then suspended each student with the shirt for the next and last day of school.

Superintendent Peter Kreger defended the decision, saying the students were being insubordinate by wearing the shirts against the school’s wishes.
