(Newser) There's no way this one could have ended well: An East Texas school's search for the mystery pooper who had five times left feces in the gymnasium led the principal to ask the school nurse to inspect the fourth-graders' underwear. "My kid came home and he said ... his butt had been inspected," complained one parent of a West Sabine Elementary student. That class had been the ones using the gym when the feces appeared, and didn't respond when the principal continually asked who did the deed. She defended the move to KAIT8 News.
She says the nurse only tugged at their pants' waistline to look inside, and that no pants were pulled below the buttocks. "There are lies being circulated," she says. Adds the superintendent, "We've all been examined by nurses. I do think it is appropriate in certain situations." And the nurse herself says, "I just peeked in their pants like you would check a baby's diaper." But two parents have complained, and a former school board member noted that, "You don't violate someone's civil rights just to achieve the ultimate goal." As for the mystery pooper, the search did not reveal the culprit.
"Mom! They inspected my butt today."
The old phrase ‘smells like s**t’ is there for a reason. If someone drops a deuce and doesn’t wipe out, it’d probably smell for a long ways away. No need for close up inspections.
To be fair, they should check all the teachers' butts too.
Where is the president today?
Attack of Der Sneakenpooper.
In jr. high we had a dog visitor to the gym who would leave feces hanging from the wall. I don’t know what he was protesting, but he certainly had an unusual talent.
One of the few times I agree with what the perps in a public school did.
However, it did remind me of a certain South Park episode.
The girls gym teacher from Porky’s must be running that school
Maybe they were just little Obama dolls.
Check their socks, too. They had “Mystery Meat” for lunch.
Who dropped the deuce in the urinal?
It's a good thing you're named "Fresh" Wind...
I'm at the point where it's truly hard to be civil to parents of
public welfare schooling.
I suppose that today the teacher would be fired or something.
Fundraising for his third term or golfing...
“We’ve all been examined by nurses”
Yes, but ostensibly for medical purposes. Now I wonder if there were ulterior motives.
For some years there has been an Internet meme about elementary and high schools having “unannounced mandatory penis checks” of all male students, as a background to the confession of some male student who was woefully unprepared for his inspection, with disastrous results.
Oh, come on! This used to happen all the time. I don’t know how many times the professors checked our pants for crap. I just marked it down as “Part of the university experience”.
