Minnetonka High School 'bans' yoga pants: Top 10 tweets
Is this look too sexy for the classroom? MHS students seem to have mixed feelings.
As we told you about earlier today, Minnetonka High School Principal Dave Adney yesterday sent a letter to parents requesting that they encourage their daughters to leave bun-hugging yoga pants in the closet.
The reason? The pants, which in Adney's words expose "more leg and backside area," are "highly distracting for other students." As a person who was once a 16-year-old boy myself, I don't doubt it.
Anyway, the letter sparked a (false) social media-fueled rumor that MHS has out-and-out banned yoga pants -- and that, in turn, provided fodder for a number of humorous tweets. Below the jump, we take a look at the 10 best.
MHS trying to ban yoga pants? Are Minnetonka girls SOO hot that it's that much of a distraction for boys and teachers? #mustbethewater

Minnetonka HS banned yoga pants? They probably should have banned perverted men because clearly that's the issue here
