Food Fight

I was just reading the news on the internet and ran across an article about a middle school eighth grade cafeteria food fight in the last 5 min. of a 25 minute lunch. The article said the school was charging the eight grade class activity fund $1,000 for cleanup of mashed potatoes, chicken fried steak and milk.
Evidently the mashed potatoes stuck to the ceiling.

A couple of thoughts come to mind:

Maybe the eighth graders were trying to tell school officials that the food stinks.
The schools already don't allow much time for eating....are they now going to reduce the time for lunch by 5 minutes?
Wonder how many parents complained that ,"It's not fair that my student be penalized when they didn't do anything wrong."?

If my sons were there, I know MY precious, well behaved sons would NEVER have participated....NOT!!!

Boy, am I glad my sons are grown!

Forget about tapping the students activity fund, just bring in a station wagon full of nuns. They can sit the kids down and give them the guilt trip about the starving children in Biafra. It worked for me...That's why I'm on a diet.
