      • My philosophy is to never deliberately offend but to equally deliberately avoid not offending.

        So if I do offend – tough shit.   Get a life [as the Yanks are fond of saying].

    • What next?  A kid expelled because he was capable of possibly thinking in the future that he might do something?

      Personally I would have taken the girl who complained about them and belted her hard enough that her ears would ring for a week, and then I would have shot the teacher.  The world would be a better place without snitches and politically correct morons.

  1. Fawn Grove is about a half hour south from here.  Our education system is so fucked up here in the US.  If you think what happened in Fawn Grove is bad check out Common Core, our new curriculum.

    • Sweet fuck!  What are you trying to teach those kids?

      "We know that many children cried during or after testing, and others vomited or lost control of their bowels or bladders. Others simply gave up. One teacher reported that a student kept banging his head on the desk, and wrote, “This is too hard,” and “I can’t do this,” throughout his test booklet."

      That conjures up one hell of a mental picture!

  2. I'm sure it wasn't an imaginary Van De Graaff generator in the Physics class at school. At least the class dumbo, Potter, didn't think so when we sneakily wound it up and then pushed him onto it during one lesson….

    • Hah!  That would be enough to make your hair stand on end!

      Think how much worse it could have been if the Van De Graaff generator was an imaginary one?

  3. Unbelievable!  You were pretty flash with the cash, Grandad.  Real live caps. They were a real treat, we usually just shouted bang! Or made machine-gun noises if we were dealing with the Germans.

  4. In the good old days of no-nonsense school discipline little Johnny Jones might have received a teacherly clip on the ear, and his co-respondent, for playacting in class. The boys might subsequently have blown a raspberry at the snitching prim little girl in the school yard, who would have gone home boo-hooing to her parents. Nowadays if a male teacher shouts "You little brat!" at gross impertinence by a short-trousered gurrier in class he'll be hauled through a tanglewood of bureaucratic procedure, accused of verbal bullying and psychological destruction. This matter IMHO shoulda been dealt with at PTA level before resorting to a civil liberties organisation. If I were a member of teaching staff at that school I might 'arrange' for a parcel of dried cow manure to be sent, without accompanying greeting card,  to the office of the civil liberties group.
