Twins Cole and Jordan Hurwitz recently claimed that their best friend senior Tucker Hutchinson’s revolutionary and new socially interactive website was originally their idea that he stole from them. Although the twins, both seniors, clearly lack the skills necessary to build up the website’s popularity to the degree Hutchinson has, they are taking it to court and are planning to sue for at least 60 million dollars.

The classic beauty, the evident kindness, and the angelic voice, it’s no surprise that senior Katelyn Heywood is more than she claims to be. Due to the compiled evidence, it has been concluded that Heywood is, in fact, Snow White. “To be honest I’m not surprised,” says senior Ali Riley. “At first I thought it was just her being a Mormon, but I wouldn’t even be surprised if her little sister Jamie was actually one of her dwarves.” Several extraordinary events have been reported from multiple Sunset students throughout this year. The events were scarce in the beginning, but as the year continued they became increasingly common. “Katelyn usually drives herself to school but she needed me to pick her up one morning,” says senior Amy Davis. “When I got to her house there were about a dozen deer in her backyard. I was so confused.” Suspicions arose once again in November, when Heywood left class, claiming to be in need of the restroom. When she didn’t return, a concerned classmate went looking for her. “It wasn’t sickness, it wasn’t constipation,

it was Katelyn in the courtyard with fifty birds,” says senior Ryan Pfeifer. “She was singing to them.” When discovered, Heywood disregarded any claims that her behavior was unorthodox. However, she came clean with her true

identity after the most recent incident in February on Valentine’s Day. “I left my room for five minutes, just five minutes and when I came back I almost had a heart attack because there were dozens of rats sitting on my desk,” says choir director Chris Rust. “Of course there was Katelyn, trying to calm me down, reassuring that they were only there to help clean my messy desk.” After recovering from shock, Rust confronted Heywood, asking her if there was anything she needed to share. Her true identity was revealed, along with the discovery that she was in fact seeking refuge in Portland after a narrow escape from her evil mother. “I tried so hard to fit in, but I can’t help how magical I am,” says Heywood. “I guess animals are my thing.” A vote was taken and it was agreed by all that Heywood would be allowed to stay, as long as she would keep her wild life under control. However, in order to maintain her safety, Heywood will be moving to BYU Idaho come next fall, where she will spend the next years of her happily ever after.

Because of this, many Sunset students are reverting to their old Myspace profiles, as a way to network socially in place of Instagram. “I forgot how cool Myspace is.

It is expected that Instagram will soon become obsolete. We are now left to wonder: what will the next hit social networking site be like, and what will be its down fall?
