Oh, our nation's educational system really churns out some gems. Here we have an essay written by Britney Spears during her junior year of high school. Christie's is putting the essay up for auction on December 4th and is looking to fetch over $500. Is there anyone special on your Christmas list? Here is the description from the Christie's website:

A page taken from Britney Spears' junior high school notebook containing her handwritten review of Rex Warner's translation of Sophocles' story Antigone, written in black ballpoint pen on either side of the page, Britney's review annotated by her teacher with corrections to her spelling and comments including ...Nice cover Organized Watch your spelling... and Write more neatly and her grade: 88; and a corresponding piece of yellow card decorated with the book's title Antigone in black felt pen

Reading this gave me a headache, but it's not like I'm one to talk. I'm lucky if I stray outside my 200 word (who am I kidding, 20 word) comfort zone.

I just read Antigone a week ago for English (I'm a freshman), and let's just say that her craptastic literary analysis further proves to the world that it's a good thing Britney Spears is a singer and not, god forbid, contributing to the literary world in any way.

Uhm. In the brief it says "Junior High School" but you said that she was a junior in high school. I hate to defend Shitney but there is a difference. =)

No kidding. As Rabies said, I'm not one to defend this hillbilly either but considering this was written while in public education (junior high or high school is irrelevent), I'll bet it was one of the better grades in the class based on nothing more than the penmanship alone. I graduated from college with honors and I would hate to see my grades from high school on ancient Greek literature.
