The Hobbit used to be required reading, now, not so much.

This may be my favorite one so far.  A student in Odessa, TX was suspended for claiming he was in possession of The One Ring, and that he could make his friend disappear.  These types of magical threats aren’t tolerated, you see, so suspension was the logical option…

This is the third time Aiden has been suspended this year. His father told the Daily News that Aiden was suspended once for referring to another student as black and another time for bringing The Big Book of Knowledge, a children’s encyclopedia to school, which his teacher discovered contained an illustration of a pregnant woman.

How do you even respond to something like that?
