Parents punish kids by making them announce to the whole neighborhood how cool they are.
Okay, so your parents punished you by securing your reputation as absolute badasses who may or may not be holding? Sorry but the only reason kids this young sneak out to smoke cigarettes and weed is to tell people they snuck out to smoke cigarettes and weed. Actually, we call BS on this. Those kids made the signs themselves. It's a brilliant idea and now we feel sad because it would have made our middle school years so much easier.
