Just hold it

Schools used to have problems with students spinning bottles. Now the youngsters pee in them. That's what happened at Salisbury Middle School in Salisbury, Maryland, which recently enacted regulations requiring every student be escorted to and from restrooms by a staff member. But when no one was available to escort three male students from Jeff Coalter's class, they urinated in an empty Pepsi bottle (with their teacher's consent). The Delmarva Daily Times reports that "some of the urine had splattered on the back wall" and that "the boys were given hand sanitizers and paper towels for them to clean up the area." Assistant Superintendent Allen Brown would not comment on how, if at all, the teacher was disciplined, but he took care to assure parents that the situation was an "isolated incident." You mean there's no epidemic of classroom urination in Salisbury? Brownie, you're doing a heckuva job.
