Let Me See Your Grill

ARLINGTON, Texas - The school district here has expanded its dress codes to include mouths — and earlobes.

Students may no longer wear mouth jewelry known as "grillz" — shiny teeth caps — or the earlobe-stretching practice known as "gauging."

The funniest thing about this is that you know the AP had a staff meeting, debating just how to spell “grillz”.

Writer 1: Well, it’s not even a word. Do we end it with a z or an s?
Writer 2: Well, Nelly spells it with a z.
Writer 1: Yeah, but that isn’t grammatically correct.
Writer 2: How do we know? The word doesn’t exist.
Writer 1: True dat.
