    Yep I`m sure that the fat cow would not be serving anything that good for the fat little bugger. Most likely would have ordered a large pizza and ate half herself before giving any to the fat kid

    There`s one thing wrong with the picture on the right. The plate should have burgers, fries, and cookies on it instead of fruit and veggies. Especially as big as those two are......the only veggies they eat are potatoes in fries and chips.

    Scene: A child comes home from school and say his teacher spanked him....

    1950`s - What did you do! You are grounded! {parent spanks kid again}

    1960`s - What did you do! You are grounded!

    1970`s - What did you do!

    1980`s - {parent was too busy to get involved}

    1990`s - Call the Lawyers! Call the news channel!

    Today - I know! I saw it on YouTube! I booked you on Larry King LIVE already!

    i can tell you this much, i`m not teaching in a public school til new policies are instated. kids shouldn`t be there to be coddled, they need to be there to learn skills, and some critical thinking.

    oh, and the kid on the right reminds me of the fat kid from bad santa.

    It`s the same here in The Netherlands, unfortunately. A kid once told me to `shut it` and I told him he would get detention for it. He tried going to the principal, which didn`t help. Then he brought in a note from his mum on the day of the detention, saying: I apologise for my son`s behaviour. Now that we`ve apologised, he doesn`t have to do detention.

    I told the boy that I decide who gets detention, not his mother, and that if he did not apologise instead of his mother, he would get another detention. I never heard from his mother again. :P

    It is increasingly clear as I get older that I am not fit for parenthood. I simply would not tolerate very much nonsense from my own children. The first time I heard he disrespected a teacher I would destroy that kid.

    Also the same reason I would never be a teacher. There would be bodies and blood everywhere.

    Wait, are you serious? This isn`t right at all. Maybe where I live is this huge outlier because all these "AMERICA SUCKS" pictures never seem to apply to me. I`ll give them the fat thing (even though I`m not fat), and I always do. But when it comes to "AMERICANS BELIEVE THIS THAT AND THE OTHER THING" it`s never right about me, my family, or my peers.

    martinikene "I want to live in the past . . . `70`s show ... "

    Really? I was there. We had 3 tv channels, but they were free. Cable? Just invented. We were the first on our block to have it. It showed 1 movie each night... WOW! and 2 on Saturday.

    Video Games... does PONG ring any bells? google it

    School - they could still paddle your ass if you misbehaved in class.

    But on the plus side, weed was common and cheep. Other drugs like coke, black beauties, cross-tops and reds were easily available.

    #1 Action Hero - Burt Reynolds in Smokey & The Bandit.

    Great time! I miss Disco.

    Yes, that one. So fake it wrecks the whole thing. If she was handing him a platter of deep-fried sausages in caramel fudge sauce and said "Has your teacher done anything for you today?" then it would make more sense.

    LOL Gerry - I think the three TV channels and Pong is the reason we were never fat back there. We were out of the house by daybreak and never looked back until the street lights came on. Oh, plus we only had one TV and Dad got to pick what we watched - news and Barney Miller. Not that Barney Miller was a bad thing.
