"Mandatory Vagina Inspection" letter was a prank, Prior Lake School District says

Categories: Education

Earlier this week, an unusual letter was placed in at least 50 Prior Lake mailboxes.

Printed on imitation school district letterhead, it's addressed to all female students at Prior Lake High School. Written by Barry McCockiner, it warns them the district "is required to conduct a mandatory vagina inspection on all female students at Prior Lake High School in accordance with Minnesota Health Code 69."

The inspections are scheduled for later this month, the purported Director of Vaginal Corrections says.

"Students MUST complete a vagina inspection before the end of the year," it continues. "The Traditional Midwestern 'Pass/Fail' judging system will be used. SENIORS who do not pass an inspection before the end of the year WILL NOT GRADUATE."

As you'd imagine, the letter spread on Twitter like wildfire. And as you'd also imagine, it was a prank -- for better or worse, there are no mandatory vagina inspections.

Here's the whole thing: Reached for comment this morning, Kristi Mussman, communications coordinator for the Prior Lake School District, says, "It's obviously a hoax letter."

"We have no idea who did it at this point but we do have some leads," Mussman tells us. "We don't know if it was a senior prank at this point."

Police aren't involved in the district's investigation.

"As far as we're concerned, nothing illegal has been done," Mussman says. "We don't have any evidence that the letter was written or disseminated during school hours or on school property."

While you'd think most discerning adults wouldn't need help figuring out the letter is a hoax, some parents didn't get it.

You should probably call the FBI or the US Postal Inspectors- I'm sure they'll start an in depth investigation to bring these pranksters to justice.

"As far as we're concerned, nothing illegal has been done," Except that putting unpaid mail in people's mailboxes is a federal crime.

Lemme guess... Your comment just backed him up perfectly. Your gonna go and mess with that guys livelihood because you don't agree with his comment. It's called freedom of speech. Or did they not teach you that in the police academy.

Kids have a sense of humor, thank goodness. We all need to lighten up and laugh at ourselves and life in general.

And you clearly mean to be "all serious and ruin the funny joke" since you decided to comment and make this about rape.

You're the one equating vagina examinations with sexual assault. This is a joke. Not something that somehow sends the message that sexual assault is okay.

I don't mean to be all serious and ruin the "funny" joke But I went to high school there and as a woman things do happen to young women at this tender age. Didn't to me but have some sensitivity! It's not funny even though this is supposed to be tongue and cheek. Sexual assault is real. So this says a lot about a messed up fetish to under aged kids in an institutionalized environment.

Police being involved is a waste of resources, waste of time and a waste of people who should be out there beating and shooting innocent people.

With this timing, it's obviously a Senior Prank. There really isn't any harm done. I really hope the high school/school district doesn't make a mountain out of a mole hill.
