Modesty ponchos are the greatest thing invented for every father with a daughter

You’ve heard it said that necessity is the mother of invention. That’s often true in life. Apparently, it’s now also true at the high school prom.

The challenge is the plunging neckline and rising hemline of the modern female prom dress. You know, the bane of existence for caring fathers of teenage girls across the nation.

Now, let’s not kid ourselves, testing the limits of a school’s guidelines regarding prom attire is pretty much as old as prom itself. Teenagers take to prom-night restrictions like bootleggers to Prohibition. And let’s get real, it’s usually females violating the dress code, because there’s just not much creative rule-breaking guys can do with a tux. The prom dress, however, offers plenty of ways to “skirt” the rules.

It often boils down to something I’m not even sure you’re allowed to say anymore... cleavage. There, I said it. The issue is cleavage. And dress length.

Indeed, modern prom is a minefield for schools. On prom night, administrators and teachers are just one tweet away from a discrimination lawsuit and a segment on The View.

Just the name itself --- modesty poncho --- sucks every ounce of romance out of any slow dance.

But now, one enterprising Catholic school in Michigan has invented a way to combat too much prom cleavage. They call it the “modesty poncho.” I mean, just the name itself --- modesty poncho --- sucks every ounce of romance out of any slow dance. It’s brilliant.

Students arrived at school yesterday to find examples of these modesty ponchos on display with a note explaining the prom dress hack. It reads, “If your dress does not meet our formal dance dress requirements --- no problem! We’ve got you covered --- literally. This is our Modesty Poncho, which you’ll be given at the door.”

The modesty ponchos are available in different colors and stylish prints. It fits over your head and drapes over your shoulders like a more streamlined shawl. They’re sure to be all the rage --- at least with dads buying them for their daughters.

You can’t invent something as fantastic as the modesty poncho and not use it.

Naturally, students immediately began posting on social media about the cruel modesty ponchos, and how they are certainly designed to “shame” females for how they dress.

Because of the student whining and media coverage, the school is already backtracking, suggesting the modesty ponchos on display are intended more as a lighthearted deterrent. But the school should stick to their guns on this one. You can’t invent something as fantastic as the modesty poncho and not use it.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
