More Stupid Bullshit From NJ Schools
In the continuing effort put forth valiantly by America's school systems to transform children into spineless state-dependents, even more schools in New Jersey are banning such playground games as dodgeball and tag on the grounds that these games have "potential for some victimization."

These people will smell like candy and part of their job will be to line the floors of classrooms (which will be called "Happy Fun Laughter Pods") with soft, fluffy pillows so that in case any of the children fall down, they will not be hurt. These pillows will also smell like candy.
