It was gals versus guys
Once a year, River Valley High School hosts a celebrated event where the girls compete against the guys to settle the age-old question "Which gender is better?"
At the outset, the girls seized control of the gymnasium and set up posters from wall to wall. The posters read slogans from "Sometimes the best man for the job isn't" to "Whatever Ken can do Barbie can do better."
At last, the day of the event arrived. At the gym, the girls and boys separated and sat facing one another on opposite sides. The girls shouted with high-pitch screams and the guys flexed their muscles in response. Interestingly enough, there was some confusion amidst the ranks. Some guys sat with the girls and some girls sat with the guys.
Ivy Benson, a junior, said, "The girls are totally going to thrash the guys. Just you wait."
Senior Navneet Bains replied, "This is going to be awesome. The guys will win for sure."
The room was in an uproar until the two organizers of the rallies — Shanice Brown, 12th, and Juan Villalobos, also 12th — took the center stage and explained the rules.
First, the girls and guys yelled to see who could make the most noise; the girls took that one.
Next, it was the organizer's turn to have a play fist fight. A replica of a boxing ring was set before them, and the fight began. Shanice threw in some lighting-fast jabs and Juan reacted by throwing a right hook, but it narrowly missed. Juan turned toward the guys for moral support. Taking the opportunity, Shanice slammed her gloved fist into the back of Juan's head, ending the match. His pride was the only thing that was wounded.
Then, the girl and guy teams were paired off, and their ankles were fastened together. They both wobbled through hula hoops to their destinations, but the guys were the ones to secure victory this round, and smugly cheered.
Afterward, the girls and guys lined up single file and turned toward one another. Here, the object was to shoot all the plastic cups off the opposing team's head with a Nerf water gun. The guys thought they had this one in the bag, but the girls were better markswomen.
Another fist fight followed, but Sock 'Em Boppers were utilized this time. The guys won this round, but by default because the girl kept wailing on her opponent even after her gloves came off.
The penultimate event pitted the dancers against other dancers. The guys broke dance their hearts out, but the girls added their own moves which encroached on the guys' win. Still, the verdict was in favor of the guys.
Last but not least, the teachers squared off, but the guys were unaware that the girls had something up their sleeves. A bald Britney Spears and a "Chris Crocker" made an appearance during the girls' routine.
In the end, the girls won the competition once more.
