Long Island Principal Bans Girls Wearing Captian Underpants Costumes Thu Oct 26, 6:35 PM LONG BEACH, N.Y. (AP) - Captain Underpants has battled talking toilets and Professor Poopypants but he was no match for a Long Island high school principal who banned students from dressing up as the children's book character. Long Beach high school principal Nicholas Restivo took the action Wednesday after three 17-year-old girls wore beige leotards and nude stockings under white briefs and red capes on the school's Superhero Day. "Yes, I know they weren't naked," Restivo said. "But the appearance was that they were naked." Chelsea Horowitz, one of the girls, had a problem with that logic. "They're not see-through or anything," said Horowitz, an honour student and softball player. "All the teachers thought it was cute." But Restivo decreed no underpants would be visible in his hallways. Horowitz and fellow seniors Ashley Imhof and Eliana Levin went home to change back into their mortal attire.
