Internet trolls vote to send Taylor Swift to school for deaf

Posted on August 30, 2012 by

Those crazy kids from 4chan and Reddit are at it again, this time attempting to send country singer Taylor Swift to a school of the deaf. Swift ran a contest with textbook rental company Chegg and pizza-maker Papa John’s to decide where she should play a free promotional concert.

4chan was slowly coming off the high of trying to give a dirty name to Mountain Dew’s new soda and Reddit was still mildly tickled by their success of exiling Pitbull to Alaska. The Internet trolls thought it would inspire total lolz to send the “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” singer to Horace Mann School for the Deaf, in Massachusetts.

According to the rules of the contest, any “accredited high school or college in the contiguous United States that is in the Chegg database” is eligible to win — so it could happen. And why wouldn’t it?

While some of the students might take offense to being part of this silly 4chan prank, they’d still get to meet Taylor Swift. Deaf or not, you can still cultivate an appreciation for music. Plus, the top five schools that receive the most votes will each receive a $10,000 grant for their music department.

Internet trolls think they’re playing a prank but I can’t think of any school in the US that wouldn’t be happy to welcome Taylor Swift.
