The Friday before ‘Senior Week’ is better known by its thigh squeezing, quad exposing, infamous counterpart- Jorts Day.

Even the name makes the most seasoned teachers cringe, striking fear into the hearts of those who dare to venture the halls on this day.

“I can’t un-see what I see on Jorts Day,” English teacher Casey Tedrow said.

Participating boys descend upon the Hall of Excellence like a pack of wolves. The potency of their jean shorts is concentrated by traveling together.  Their goal?  Maximum eye damage.

If you spot a native jorts wearer, remain calm.  They sense fear and will prey on your disgust.

Like any hot-button topic, Jorts inspires multitudes of feelings.

“[Jorts Day] is like Vanilla Ice, a stain on American Culture,”  History teacher John Frank said.

A few senior boys would counter, arguing that Jorts are a pillar of American virtue.

“Jorts are the beautiful backbone of this country,” senior Bailey Barrett said.

To the senior boys, Jorts Day is the inaugural event in the celebration of high school graduation.

“Jorts bring out the beauty within us all,” senior Hunter Dotson said.

The day is continually celebrated by chants during passing periods and a massive gathering of all Jort-wearers in the Hall of Excellence at the 2:50 bell.

“Denim: it brings people together usually but when coupled with too much thigh exposure it drives us apart,”  Spanish teacher Adam Gaff said.

Prepare yourself Center Grove, the Jort-pocalypse is upon us.
