FORT WORTH,- Officials with a Texas school district said a group of high school cheerleaders was disciplined for giving urine-tainted drinks to teammates.
Administrators said at least two girls at Fort Worth's Saginaw High School received in-school suspensions and an unspecified number of their fellow cheerleaders received lesser punishments for serving sodas contaminated with a cheerleader's urine to their teammates during a basketball game late last year, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Thursday.
District officials said Principal Ric Canterbury began an investigation after hearing rumors about the incident. They said the girls involved in the prank will be barred from cheerleading events for the remainder of the school year but will be eligible to rejoin the team during the next school year.
The father of one of the girls who drank the contaminated soda said the offending cheerleaders should be permanently removed from the team.
"They shouldn't be allowed to represent Saginaw," said the parent, who asked not to be named to protect his daughter's anonymity.
Remind me of a scene in the 1980(?) comedy “Hollywood Knights,” in which Robert Wuhl’s prankster character leads off with, “Gentlemen, let’s ‘spike the punch.’”
In school suspensions and lesser punishments for giving urine tainted soda (in other words, a hazardous waste) to fellow classmates? I don’t think the punishment fit the crime here folks. The parents of the victims need to pursue this.
Bet the cheerleaders who drank that were pissed off.
Lots of good comments.
“Did you know urine is sterile? You can drink it.” Tyler Durdan, Fight Club
“The parents of the victims need to pursue this.”
“The father of one of the girls who drank the contaminated soda said the offending cheerleaders should be permanently removed from the team.”
Every last one of those who participated should be dismissed from the squad and a new tryout held for their replacements. Maybe then they would learn responsibility for their actions, and a bit of humility.
Mean Girlism just took a quantum leap!
I guess somehow the prank leaked out.
More like “pissed in” than off.
Carbonated urine? I call it “Corona”.
Not severe enough IMHO.
What a Pissa!
