McKINNEY, Texas - School officials say they are appalled by altered photos including heads on different bodies in hundreds of McKinney High School yearbooks delivered this week.

Besides the head and body switching, some necks were stretched, one girl's arm was missing, and another girl's head was placed on what appeared to be a nude body, with the chest blurred.

A spokeswoman for Minnesota-based Lifetouch National School Studios Inc. said the alterations were "an unfortunate lapse in judgment" by an employee but didn't believe it was malicious.

The high school had required Lifetouch to make heads the same size and eyes at the same level in all student photos, company spokeswoman Sara Thurin Rollin said Saturday. The request was "unusual and definitely very particular, but that's not to suggest what happened here is acceptable," she said.

I'm sure it was just a highschool prank, stuff like that happens often when it comes to year books. There have been cases of hidden messages in the "quotes" section of some year books. 5 or more people all say some quote that when put together means something entirely different. Actually, when I graduated High School we had to have our "class photo" reshot because of some idiots giving the finger in the original. It happens. Kids will be kids.
