First there was the War on Drugs. Now there's the War on Skittles

    Dumbassery reaches new heights. Don't these people have kids to teach?

    A New Haven, Conn., middle school honours student, suspended for buying candy from a classmate, will have the discipline expunged from his record, the superintendent of schools said Wednesday night.

    Michael Sheridan also was stripped of his title as class vice-president, barred from attending an honours student dinner and suspended for a day after buying a bag of Skittles last month from a classmate.


    It violated the school's "wellness" policy.

    An administrator busted Michael with the candy in his pocket.

    Give me a fucking break. And we wonder why our children don't grow up to be well-adjusted adults.

    I love Skittles, but I hate the grape ones. I actually throw them out instead of eating them whenever I buy a bag.

    You're probably the guy who steals all the strawberry Starburst, too, eh Norm?"

    Jerk.

    PS - You're right, grape sucks. Go green!

    WTF? They have rules against bake sales and candy fundraisers so they bust the kids for skittles? What, was the one kid raising funds to restore John Rowland's good name?

    What a ridiculous, fucking story. I can't wait to have kids so I can watch this shit happen first-hand.
