Dearie, dearie me.

First, read this news article:

http://www.sptimes.com/2005/01/19/Pa...ves_teac.shtml

And then, read this one:

http://www.wfts.com/stories/2005/02/050203abuse.shtml

Choice quotes, once you've read it:

"I just love working with kids. It's awesome to have them look up to you. It's nice to be able to teach them things they don't know."

"It has also caused him to make some sacrifices, such as altering his own school schedule so he could fit in as many hours as he could volunteering with elementary school students."

"Those elementary students have been recommended by faculty and staff because they are in need of a little extra attention from someone older - but not too much older."


Edit: Jeez, closed already. ČČ

At first I was like "Oh, what a coincidence, both of those young men like little boys. Just in different ways." Then I reopened the first news article, looked at the names and said "Oh, what a coincidence, both of those young men are the same young man. He likes little boys in both ways (Okay, actually he may just like molesting them)."

Only time people post articles online is when something outrageous happens, so I was suspicious at how normal the first one went.

The moment I saw the second one, I knew.

Sad.

If something sounds too good to be true it usually is.

..............................................Whoa !
That was...*Checks a wordbook and picks the first word he sees*

That was spiteful.

*Decides to try again*
That was misspelt.

"Arrgh! Stupid wordbook!"
*Tries a third time*

That was handkerchief.
*Now pleased. PoM walks out of the thread.*

To hopefully never be seen again.

That's pretty bad, but then again, being so young, I guess people didn't really see it coming, and then pow! Piece of metal does a wordbook joke.

So Tragic.

(If you take out the semi-jokey part of that post and pretend I was talking about the topic in hand, that's the way I feel about it)

...I wouldn't call that a "joke", rather a "pitiful attempt"...

Aren't pitiful attempts as funny as jokes?

In a sad, strange little way, but for you, it was just pitiful. A pitiful attempt at a good joke may be slightly humerous, but that one was going no where from the start.

Shut yo mouth foo


Listening to you, I get the music
Gazing at You, I get the heat
Following you, I climb the mountain
I get excitement at your feet

Right behind you, I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinions
From you, I get the story
