There's something terribly wrong with the way these kids are being socialized and educated if this evokes fear and tears instead of curiosity and "OMG MAYBE IT'S A DINOSAUR" levels of wonder.

Congratulations Nanny States on pussifying an entire generation.

/In 'Merica we would have put the whole school on lockdown until after the bomb squad blew the thing up.

But an apology was issued after it emerged some had been "worried by it" and one parent posted on Twitter that their children had been "in tears".

Why would you post on Twitter that your kid is that big of a pussy?

Article notes that one parent's kids were in tears.  I wonder if other kids were upset.  I also wonder if that parent is raising a couple of wussies or if they were stupid enough to let their little kids watch Alien.

What happened to just telling kids to nut up?

Unless it had Lady Gaga inside, that is.

It's the curse of an overly litigious society.  One or two kids are unsure how to react to a new thing so they cry, the go-to thing if you're five years old.  The rest of the kids are interested and having fun but the parents of the unsure kids complain and it's just easier for the school to fold instead of fighting it so everyone loses out.

It sounds like the school were actually trying to do something interesting that would engage imagination and encourage critical thinking skills.  Shame a minority of ridiculous parents ruined it for the majority.

Sure, but if it had been the parents who accidentally scared the children they would have laughed themselves silly.

"AHAHA! Remember that time when you were a baby and we gave you a bath with your cousin, and she tried to pull your weenie off? AHAHA! You were crying so hard!" LOL

Man, teachers don't get any kind of slack for stuff like that.

What kinds of pussies are afraid of an egg? The thing could be 300 meters long; why the hell would it be scary? It's still a farking egg!

I would pay money to see a midget break out of it and start chasing the kids.

And Brits accuse us of being terrified little pantywaists?

Imagine if they saw a chicken. Some of the kids would have to be permanently institutionalized.

I hope no one is surprised if that thing cracks open and Johnathan Winters falls out.
