writes: Camden middle school has banned "intentional" farting. Though how they can tell the difference between "intentional" and "accidental" flatulance I'm not sure, maybe they smell differently. -Ewwww One more reason to not become a middle school assistant pricipal.
So I wonder if this will hold up under constitutional scrutiny, it seems that "intentional" flatulance could be a form of freedom of expression. However, that freedom is already limited in the public schools, so the question really is if it was "intentional."
I wonder if they give kids with Tourette's syndrom detention for swearing in class or if they just make them go to a "special" school.
Maybe the only solution is to send the kids with uncontrollable flatulance to a "special" school. -Ewww another job you couldn't pay me enough to do.
From the article:
And while it's a natural bodily function, it seems some Camden-Rockport Middle School eighth-grade boys are taking it to new heights and making a game of seeing who can expel the loudest and grossest flatus.
"Strange, but true, thanks to a bunch of 8th grade boys, intentional farting has been banned from CRMS," the newsletter said. "It started out as a funny joke and eventually turned into a game. This is the first rule at CRMS that prevents the use of natural bodily functions. The penalty for intentional farting is a detention, so keep it to yourself!"
