Your tb-two* high school bulletin board for Nov. 7

PALM HARBOR UNIVERSITY HIGH

When a potty mouth is acceptable: The antics at the Urine Good Company will be in full force this week as Palm Harbor puts on its fall musical, Urinetown. Senior Josh Perlin, center, who plays C.B. Cladwell, president of the UGC, is flanked by a UGC executive (junior Anna Litinski, at left) and Cladwell's secretary (sophomore Amanda Peacock, right). Tim Hart, senior, who plays Officer Lockstock, describes the show as the "most hilarious, self-aware musical about pee ever written." $15 will get you admittance to one of the three shows, tonight, Friday or Saturday , and more toilet humor and/or drama than you can shake a plunger at. — Joey Hager, senior, tb-two* staffer

LAKEWOOD HIGH

Quite "disturbeing": Anyone else see the misspelled sign on an English teacher's door during test administration? I hope the test was on poetic irony! — Owen Dyches, junior, tb-two* staffer

TAMPA BAY TECH

Why so serious? A note mysteriously tacked to an outside lunch table was the talk of the campus recently. Who could have possibly put it there? What could have caused the grudge against teenagers? The prevailing rumor is that a senior placed it on the table to mock underclassmen who take their lofty, parent-funded lives for granted. — Danyscia Jarvis, junior, tb-two* staffer
