Have you been spending countless hours studying for the SATS or PSATs and crying over college admission essays, or resenting the fact your parents aren’t rich enough to buy you a place? Welcome to the club! Here are some of the funniest takes on the Aunt Becky scandal, codenamed Operation Varsity Blues.
If there’s anything our generation does well, it’s making a meme out of injustice and scandal 🤣
If only there was a succinct turn of phrase these kids could have used to inform their parents they were not desirous of their life path… https://t.co/cxOTDI5J1B

The admissions scandal is a sad reminder of class inequality but I love that a bunch of rich kids woke up and found emails from their parents to school administrators like “plz help my child is an absolute dullard, the kid would eat sand straight off the beach if I let them”
