    Insert “Jumps The Shark” Wording Here

    One elementary school instituted a Taliban-like ban on singing “Happy Birthday” for fear of upsetting students who were not participating in the celebration (or something like that):

    A ban on singing “Happy Birthday” lasted all of four days at Chesterfield Elementary School in Missouri after angry parents bombarded the school with complaints.

    “Singing is not permitted due to the sensitivity of all student beliefs,” wrote Principal Jodi Davidson in a letter to parents dated August 13.

    On August 23 Davidson sent another letter reversing the policy noting that students “are permitted and encouraged to sing the happy birthday song in the classroom.”

    However, students will not be permitted to sing the traditional song in the cafeteria and all birthday treats must be individually inspected by the school nurse.

    Even Hitler Youth could sing the German version of that song. What a complete idiot.

    How about a slightly used smack upside the head?

    Is it any wonder that home schooling has become so wildly popular?

    Freedom requires tolerance. If our freedoms are going to be trimmed back for fear of offending hyper-sensitive people, maybe they aren't ready to live in a free country and should find a country with a culture more suitable to their intolerant nature.

    I can see how being forced to wish someone happiness can traumatize children. But what about songs which all students can believe in?

    Mine eyes hace seen the glory of the burning of the school!
    We have tortured every teacher, we have broken every rule!
    We have crucified the principal as a dirty rotten rat!
    Our Truth goes marching on!

    And that principal is probably being paid as much as $200,000 a year with wall to wall benefits and cushy early retirement.
