Last year, Jessica Lee's "Fluorine uranium carbon potassium bismuth technetium helium sulfur germanium thulium oxygen neon yttrium" quote won over our hearts as the most gangsta yearbook quote of all time. It stands for "Fuck bitches, get money," for those unfamiliar with the periodic table. But this year, we meet Paris Gray, a senior class vice president at Mundy's Mill High School in Atlanta.
Gray's yearbook quote seems very confusing at first: "When the going gets tough just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus."
But it really stands for something simple, "When the going gets tough, 'back that ass up.'"
Here's how the elements break down:
(BA) Barium (C) Carbon (K) Potassium (Th) Thorium (At) Astatine (As) Arsenic (S) Sulfer (U) Utranium (P) Phospheros
Once school officials decoded her message, she was given in-school suspension, banned from the school's senior walk, and was threatened with not being able to attend the graduation ceremony. Don't worry, that's all been resolved now.
Paris Gray, you win this year's most gangsta yearbook quote competition. Peace to Juvenile.
