These days you need a permission slip to let your kids do just about anything at school, but one middle school in Pennsylvania has taken it way too far.
Said school sent a lengthy permission slip home for parents to agree to their kids having an Oreo. Not a line of crack cocaine, not a sip of beer, but the cookie type treat, an Oreo.
The kids were supposed to receive the treat after a science experiment done in class using said Oreo – and the letter even made it clear that the kids DID NOT HAVE TO EAT THE OREO. In bold. Because God forbid they indulged in one whole cookie.
The words ‘political correctness gone mad’ spring to mind here…
