The Midland Texas superintendent should have added the school furries are allowed to use the sandbox outside or pretty anywhere outside because Midland does resemble a giant litter box.

Yes, this really is what the teaching profession is like sometimes.

I honestly would have found out where she lived, rung the doorbell, slapped the shiat out of her, and drove off

And that would be if my kids were enrolled in midland ISD

*fun fact, would probably get away with it, my wife's family are old school money in that shiathole town

Oh this story gets better as the co-chair of the Michigan Republican party was spreading it on social media.

The same person signed the fraudulent alternative electors certificate and is on the hook for that, with the state AG referring it to the feds but also stating if the Feds don't do shiat she will.

I mean we weren't but then this troll came to the school board meeting and we all thought it might actually be a good idea to put litter boxes in the bathrooms. It's not like the boys are hitting the toilets right now anyway, so we're down to try anything that gives them a target other than the seat, walls, sinks, railings, and basically anywhere other than the urinals and toilets themselves.  We're also considering furry clubs, providing free fursuits, and making use of spray bottles solely in the name of hygiene to encourage box use; we want your kids housetrained, because apparently some of you--probably the ones so all-consumingly terrified of furries and litter boxes--can't be arsed to do it yourselves.

If your kids can't poop in a bowl, you'll get a box with sand just like the hospital administration provided when the power and water went out in Texas in February of 21.

Some people are dumb enough to believe anything.

Case in point: There are a bunch of people that took that "teacher" seriously when she said she was fired for not meowing back at a student.

Ok, which of you Farkers made this claim at the school board meeting? I know a Farker started this, knowing what would happen and where it would go, and knowing that they would get an easy green out of it.
 
2022-01-23 3:09:38 PM  
And the MAGA crowd wonders why nobody actually takes them seriously.

FTA: "According to Merriam-Webster, a 'furry' is a person who dresses up in a costume resembling anthropomorphic animals."

This is one time when it might have been better to refer to the Urban Dictionary definition and not Merriam-Webster.  And, boy!, does the Urban Dictionary have a lot to say about furries.

At the meeting, Midland resident Lisa Kawiecki Hansen said she heard about the litter boxes from kids, and they were for kids who "identified as cats." She added that she was "really disturbed" by this and that she "will continue to investigate."

Sounds to me like some dimwitted hausfrau as an overactive imagination and too much time on her hands.

Oh please oh please oh please let her be caught on the surveillance cameras trying to smuggle a litter box into the school to "prove" the super nintendo was lying about them.

Of course, CNN would probably report this as "Questions remain as to whether or not..."

You've got to out-crazy these people (if that's even possible) and put them on the defensive.

Superintendent: "Ma'am I can assure you that we do not have....wait, aren't you Lisa Hansen? Two kids at Central Middle School? Your kids have been in my office numerous times, they're saying that you're running a child sex ring out of your basement. They claim you're using the profits to give counseling to Mexican migrant workers to better integrate into American society. And apparently every Tuesday and Thursday you bring coffee and donuts to the workers at the Planned Parenthood clinic."

Her repution among conservative circles will be ruined. She'll spend the rest of her days trying to prove a negative.

Paying Russian sex workers to jump up and down and pee on a bed that Obama slept in

Yes, I can totally believe he did this
Hell, he hired an actor to play Obama so her could "fire" him, and that video is public record

I'm getting a lot of use out of this.

These are Cipolla's five fundamental laws of stupidity:
1. Always and inevitably, everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
2. The probability that a certain person (will) be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person.
3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.
4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular, non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places, and under any circumstances, to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.
A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person.

Trump is confirmed to have attended a burlesque style show in Las Vegas along with Russian nationals. At that show, the performers did pee on each other. I think that was the origin of the Moscow hotel pee story. It just went through so many rounds of telephone that it morphed. Or maybe he really did it. Its hard to describe a story of Trumpian depravity that is unbelievable.

I think what set that woman off was the 'identify as cats' part. The district should have sent out a message saying that parents shouldn't worry, students identifying as cats still must use a toilet unless they bring their own litterbox. Taxpayer money will not be spent on providing free litterboxes. That would calm the parents down.

At a prior meeting the same parent, Lisa Kawiecki Hansen, protested that students informed her that the words "slow" and "gullible" had been blacked out in all the dictionaries because it might make some students uncomfortable.

I couldn't tell if it was Texas or Michigan, either, at first. But the article at the bottom about kids snow-sledding in cardboard tanks gave it away. There are no hills for sledding in Midland, TX.

Back in the 70s, our class took a field trip to the public library. In short oder, I found this picture in a book. I also found the Sports Illustrated back issues. That hooked me on libraries for life. Although I would have been in hot water if our nun found out about either.

I work in the (Canadian) school system.

This is what I think happened. Kid was bored, or peeved at their school administration so they go home and tell their parent(s) some nonsense about litterboxes. Parent flips out and the school is forced to deny... which only makes the kooks believe it more.

Last year we had kids who didn't want to go outside for noon hour and play in the cold telling their parents there were bear tracks, bear droppings, and bear fur in the schoolyard. So it's so unsafe, Mom and Dad, we better just stay inside.

A couple of years earlier a student with eczema told another student the rash on their hand was from all the poison ivy in the schoolyard. *sighs*

I kinda like Midland.  Never spent more than a night there at a time, though.  The Museum of the Southwest was good.  I was also drinking a lot in those days.
