HISTORY LESSON: The Boston Tea Party of 1773 was one of the main trigger events of rebellion that led to the Revolution. It was, as is represented in the above strip, instigated primarily by Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty, and consisted of he and several other disgruntled revolutionaries dumping the cheap British tea into the Boston Harbor. It is, therefore, reciprocated above with the students throwing the school's only offered beverage out the window, and probably scalding passerby below.
... Let me be the one to point out that the school looks pretty fancy~ of course... with that aside... *clears throat* DHSAJKHDASHDSKAH!!! DD: THE TEAAAAAAAAAAA!!! OHMAIGOD, THE HORROR! (You know, for a gang... the Sons of Liberty tossing scalding hot tea out the window is actually pretty tame now that I think about it.... ) 0_o
