Harmless Prank?

As it turns out harmless pranks no longer exist. Any prank is by definition an attack on society and as such must be punished. Some highschool kid wanted to ask a girl out for the prom, and wanting it to be memorable, he got some of his friends from the laccrosse team together, and wrote out the invitation on their butts, and then mooned the girl. The girl was so unfazed so managed to answer immediately by slapping the butt of the guy with the word yes? written on him. She thought it was cute, as did her parents. Luckily the athletic director, a woman, knew better than this girl, that in fact this was disrespectful to women. she wants to send the message that "what may be fun to them isn't necassarily fun to everyone else." How true. Like you know how some people think it's fun to judge and condemn other's actions whether or not anyone cares what they have to say. That isn't fun for me. The students were suspended forced to perform community service, and the team was suspended. Now maybe we can end this blight of childhood once it for all. It's about time children and teenagers started acting like the middle aged puritans who founded this country in the first place.

why don't you write in the local paper or something? i don't think the right people are reading this blog.

i'm surprised she didn't get suspended for slapping his butt.

well according to the paper she slapped his lower back, which i took to mean butt, but i suppose she might have avoided his actual butt.

I think everyone in the area already knows about the incident and has probably decided which side they are on. The article i read had many comments along the same lines as mine. So rather than dumping more on what seemed like a saturated market, i'm bring this news to the few people who read this blog.

The problem is that this isn't an isolated insident at an isolate school where the local paper is important. It's a national trend of punishing students for being kids.
