City of New York Hires Celebrities to Document Your Failure as a Parent

Were you aware that your son and/or daughter skipped school today? No? Don’t worry. Magic Johnson and Trey Songz should give you a call this evening to talk about becoming a better father.

According to the New York Post “the city launched a program called WakeUp NYC that enlists celebrities to place automated phone calls to chronically absent students at 25 schools.”

Participating "celebrities" (loose term) include Big Boi, various New York Mets players, and Rocsi, from BET's 106 & Park.

So beware, parents who think a seventh grade education is sufficient. If you don’t make sure your kid is in class, New York Mets star Jose Reyes (who skipped 49 games last year and has no college degree) may leave you an unflattering voicemail.
