The principal of Conestoga High School in Murray, Nebraska is a guy named David Friedli. And yesterday, he announced the school was canceled for a snow day by recording a four-minute parody of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire".
It should've been super corny, but somehow, David sells it. Even though he's not a great singer . . . he's wearing sunglasses indoors . . . and he recorded it in his kitchen.
For a little taste, the lyrics start with, "Out on 42nd street, weather there is less than neat, snow is drifting, winds are blowing, it's a real mess." And the chorus, of course, goes, "Staff didn't want a snow day, but the snow keeps falling so that's why we're calling."
