WWE Kingergarten

K and I went to orientation at the elementary school last week because The Mayor will start Kindergarten in the fall.

The program included a school tour.

When we went outside to see the playground, the Principal proudly showed off a new set of tire swings.

I had to hold back from using my world championship wrestling moves to put the HURT on him when, trying to be funny, he said,

“We were really fortunate to get the new tire swings. As soon as we get the area mulched in properly we expect to see a real uptick in broken arms.”

Excuse me Mr. Principal, did you say, BROKEN ARMS?

OH, HAYULL NO!

Don't even joke or I'ma hafta hitchoo wif my BODY AVALANCHE!

In what alternate universe are jokes about children breaking bones funny?

Sheesh. Some people.

Reading that made my stomach lurch. My son broke his arm a couple of years ago (at age 7). Although his experience wasn't as bad as the Mayor's, I still well remember listening to him cry and scream in pain as I drove him to the hospital.

My oldest broke her arm in two on the school monkey bars and NEARLY broke it again last month doing the same thing. Arms! They get broken!

Oh, see, now I find that kind of funny. I remember how much it hurt like hell when I broke my arm at 7, but I do remember feeling awfully cool with the cast. Poor guy, trying to show what a humorous guy he is and falling flat.

Idiocy is correct.

OMG before I was a para-professional in a pre-schoolers with disabilities classroom, I was a recess aide. We had no swings on our playground in our N.J. school. Insurance would not allow them of any kind, a liability they call them. I did that job for seven school years no broken arms legs or any such injuries. I did however save a childs life from chocking on a meatball in our school cafeteria by using the heimlich manuever. After the mayor broken arms make me cringe. Aunt Candy

One of the godkids fell off a climbig frame onto his best friend last week. Ker-snap went BFF' arm. Friend seems to be overjoyed with his cast, which he thinks is "cool". Godkid is being made to write up his friends homework.

I am a physical education teacher and have been for a long time. I haven't officially taught in several years but..here's a statistic for you...

Number one play ground accident in the entire world....number ONE.....swings.....most of the schools in our area do not have swings on them at all...old fashion people thing it is awful but until you've dealt with broken bones and bleeding kids...you just don't get it...

My suggestion to you would be to run, not walk over this principal's head and have the tire removed...
