You thought the teacher that wanted to ban pencils was bad? Candy Canes...can you believe this?

There are three main areas that the smart person should never enter:

1. Courtrooms
2. Airports
3. Public Schools

We all know that an absolutely great way to be sodomized is to enter a courtroom, it's a given.

For men, the airport might be a great place to go in the future. You might be able to get your prostate examined by a government buffoon while they make sure you don't have some sort of assbomb up there.




HAYMARKET, Va. (WUSA) -- They call themselves the "Christmas Sweater Club" because they wear the craziest ones they can find...

"They said, 'maliciously maim students with the intent to injure.' And I don't think any of us here intentionally meant to injure anyone, or did," said Zakk Rhine, a junior at Battlefield High School.

The boys say they were just tossing small two-inch candy canes to fellow students as they entered school. The ones in plastic wrap that are so small they often break apart.

Skylar Torbett, also a junior, said administrators told him, "They said the candy canes are weapons because you can sharpen them with your mouth and stab people with them." He said neither he nor any of their friend did that.

...Their disciplinary notices say nothing about malicious wounding but about littering and creating a disturbance.

"It was at 7 in the morning, before school even starts, so I don't what we'd be really disrupting," said Cameron Gleason, also a junior.

The boys' parents think the school went overboard and maybe administrators were trying to stop their boys from spreading Christmas cheer.

Mother Kathleen Flannery said an administrator called her and explained "not everyone wants Christmas cheer. That suicide rates are up over Christmas, and that they should keep their cheer to themselves, perhaps."

Now, I could really have a grand time writing about this one, but I just don't feel like it. It doesn't matter if the people running this school think a candy cane can be sucked into a dangerous point or if they just did this to take a dump on Christmas, either way...there is a word for these people - self-censored.

I remember several years ago, forums and websites dedicated to gun ownership and self-defense - screaming for teachers to be armed. You must be joking.
