I stumbled across …interesting… news yesterday. Let me share it with you:
The gist of it is this: Students thought it would be funny to take the cat they dissected for class and hang it on cars as a prank. One kid did it to a friend, who retaliated and hung it back on the first kid’s car.
First, just let me say, how funny. I haven’t heard anything this hilarious since I read American Psycho. I just love seeing dead animals hanging around.
Second, the school district and its spokesman really need to rethink their position. The spokesman said, and I quote, “The district is currently looking at software that will mimic a dissection. The only problem is you don’t get that tactile 3-D experience.” Apparently, the “tactile 3-d experience is what you get when you hang a cat from a car.
Seriously, who thinks these kids aren’t getting the “benefit” of a real dissection? So far, what they’ve shown is that they have no respect for the dead and that they have a really poor sense of humor. I think it may be time to take away that “benefit”…
