What Was 'The Incident' That Took Place At Your High School?
If you or someone you know has ever attended a public or private high school, there’s a very large chance that when you were a student back in high school, something happened at least once or twice that gave you and your friends a reason to gossip.

Or when your best friend suddenly decides to hook up with your ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend.
And then there’s the kind of something that happens which is known and discussed by everyone, including the teachers and the students.

Maybe it’s the mayor of your town transforming into a giant serpent at your graduation ceremony and then eating your principal right in front of you before trying to devour everyone else.
Maybe your best friend accidentally kills himself by shooting himself in the stomach because he found a loaded gun in his mother’s house and decided to twirl it around on his finger as if he was RoboCop.
Maybe the local red-headed hottie who is not named Cheryl Blossom decides to start a vigilante group with his friends and announced this by having his masked and shirtless friends declare their intentions on video for the whole world to see. (Seriously, Archie, in what world did any of this come across like a good idea to you? I mean, really.)
