129. Principal’s Guide to Acceptable Textbooks

December 1, 2008

Q: I’m trying to find a copy of the Principal’s Guide to Acceptable Textbooks or something similar. It was hilarious. No matter how horribly the books were defaced, the principal OK’d them for reuse. There was a picture of George Washington smoking a cigarette by his horse that I still laugh about.

A: It sounds like the History textbook parody in the 1964 High School Yearbook Parody, but it doesn’t match your description. I thought it might be in the 199th Birthday Book, but apparently not. If anyone else knows where this appeared, please┬ápost it in a comment.
