Student gets suspended for reciting Star Trek pledge of allegiance

A student got suspended for reciting Star Trek pledge of allegiance, and his mother retold the experience in her Blog:

So she told me what he did. And as she told me, I started to laugh. I didn't laugh a little, either, but I belly-laughed and grabbed my stomach. My son stood with his class this morning, put small right hand over heart, faced the American flag, and recited his own personal pledge of allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United Federation of Planets, and to the galaxy for which it stands, one universe, under everybody, with liberty and justice for all species.

"Mrs. Jaworski. This isn't humorous. The Pledge is an extremely important and patriotic moment each morning in the classroom. I am ashamed of your son's behavior, and I hope you are, too."

Man, that kid totally ninja-ed the Pledge of Alegance. The sneaky bastard! I think to get suspended for such a thing would be an honor. Why didn't any geek think of this sooner?
