Simon Kenton High School's graduating seniors have an enterprising plan to pay for college expenses. They just put their school up for sale.
The ad, which has been deleted, states, "Going off to college, so i dont (sic) need it anymore, need to save up my cash to pay off all these loans coming up. Will consider trades for a big truck, life time supply of chaw, a country boy, or a state championship in something other than bowling."
The ad lists attributes of Simon Kenton such as "persistent cigarette smoke smell in freshman boys bathroom" and an "excellent" football field, as well as a "pool on the roof," and "comes with its very own day care."
The sale includes trucks, "concrete farmers," "lots of used chaw, and empty chaw cans," "laptops that never work," and "textbooks (not many, not in very good condition)."
Simon Kenton Principal Martha Setters said she's not entertaining any offers.
"It was meant as a prank. It is an exaggeration," she said. "We are still focused on instruction throughout the remainder of the school year."
School ends on May 30.
