The Official FYA May 2012 Calendar

Holla FYA!! It's May, and even though I haven't been in real school since 2003 (grad school doesn't count, and even that ended four years ago), I'm still filled with excitement and a sense of impending freedom every May. Even though the coming summer isn't the same once you grow up -- and it's even rougher for you children's librarians, staring down the barrel of summer reading programs -- you can still get excited for one thing. The FYA calendar, what what! That's right, time to flirt with disciplinary action with another of our book cover parodies.

This month, we bring you our version of Kody Keplinger's The Duff. Who WOULDN'T rather be a Drunk Raunchy Uber Naughty Kid instead of a Designated Ugly Fat Friend?

The original, for comparison purposes

And because I like polls, which wallpaper do you prefer?
