Johnston County schools take a stand against lip balm.

My son walks into school earlier this fall with a cup of coffee in hand. By the time he's made it 100 feet into the school 3 different teachers jump him about not bringing outside drinks into the school. 2 out of the 3 are carrying, you guessed it, a mug of coffee. We try to impress on our kids that they should respect their teachers but man they make it hard.

Why, back in my day we used bear fat. One teacher objected.
Until my dad brought in the bear.
This is ridiculous.

Today lip balm, tomorrow deodorant!

Don't kids sometimes share or borrow books? What then?

You need a doctor's note for lip balm? WTFBBQ is going on down there, cindy?

Wingnut, they were merely reinforcing the old parental adage: do what I say, not what I do.

You can have my lip balm when you pry it from my crapped, frozen lips.

"Crapped, frozen lips," Jeff?!

*blink blink*

...Myself, I'm thinking it's time to institute a zero tolerance policy on zero tolerance policies. Every time I think they can't get any more moronic...

OK, so I meant chapped

Some day maybe I'll learn to proofread first.


Maybe they should ban stupidity first and then everyone left will know how to use their chapstick properly.

This is just more ammo for terrorists. Now we will have the "chap stick in the underwear bomber."

Is our school administrators getting enough work to keep them busy? Nope.

If a teacher called me because my child had a tube of chapstick, I would definitely take the chapstick and put it somewhere safe. Of course the teacher wouldn't like where I put it,iykwim.

Chapstick Suppository WBAGNFA...maybe not.

I just talked to a friend and mentioned this. She was called once because her child had some chapstick. They told her she would need a doctors note before they could use it at school. That, of course meant a twenty dollar co-pay to the doctor. So she called the doctors office and he said not to worry and faxed a note to the school, free. He agreed it was stupid and said he has to do that at least 4 or 5 times a week.

Well, lip balm IS a gateway drug. Can't be too careful!

Suzy Chapstick, pusher.

This is insane! How about they let people use school vouchers, and then people can send their kids to schools that might actually teach them something instead of police their lip balm and aspirin?

Next they'll be banning sunscreen at school -- support your right to bare arms!
