—— FUTURE BANS HUGGING —— (Parte Secunda)

This is catching, as this kind of shit seems to do, especially in the so-called 'education sector'.

Hugging banned at high school

STUDENTS at a north Queensland state high school have been given detention after being caught hugging.

Two Year 9 girls have been given detention after being caught embracing friends, inclusing one who said she was comforting a friend wwas distressed. [SPELLING AND INCOHERENT GRAMMAR COPIED AS IS! †]

One sits in stunned silence, not least at the article's 'English', for which the writer should be shot immediately, or at the very least have his hand cut off, so he or she can never repeat the offense. [BTW, I use US spelling; just FYI and in case someone's wondering.]

Oh, and by the way, here's another bit of 'news' that might or might not shock you, depending on your inclination:

Obama 'sent from God' says Sting

NEW YORK - Sting isn't a religious man, but he says President Barack Obama might be a divine answer to the world's problems.

"In many ways, he's sent from God," he said in an interview, "because the world's a mess."

Sting believes that Obama is the best leader to navigate the world's problems. In an interview, the former Police frontman said that he spent some time with Obama and "found him to be very genuine, very present, clearly super-smart, and exactly what we need in the world."

Well, here's a gentle reminder...

† It is possible that by the time you actually look at the article, someone might have corrected it. But at the time, I did a straight copy-and-paste. I also saved the article, just so that nobody can accuse me of having made this 'English' up; because it looks like the kind of thing one could have made up...
