Is the moon is made of cheese? Could we send astronauts to the sun if they went there at night? After a steer is castrated, can it still produce milk? Is arachnophobia a fear of Iraq?
Questions like this can raise an eyebrow or two (or three if you come from another planet with a cheesy moon).
Seriously, how stupid can people get?
To answer that question, pay a visit to Josh Ehn, Principal of Melcher-Dallas Jr/Sr High School in Melcher, Iowa.
When an autistic boy was constantly bullied, his school did nothing to stop it (despite a detailed description of their anti-bullying policy on their web site). When the mother of the 13-year old boy complained, the bullies took it to the next level and posted videos on the Internet making fun of the autistic boy’s mannerisms.
And yet, the school still did nothing.
Principal Ehn explained that posting a video making fun of someone did not fit their definition of bullying.
Really? Is there a limit to how much stupid some people can fit into one head?
Apparently not. When probed further and asked what the school was doing about bullying, Ehn said, “We do what we can, but ultimately, it’s incumbent upon the students in the classroom to stand up against bullying.”
