A history teacher at Schrade Middle School in Rowlett, Texas has been suspended because he lassoed a seventh-grader with a lariat.

When it gets to the point that you can't lasso a 12 year old, then we may as well just shred the Constitution.

Next they will ban tasers.

Having kids that are not so far out of middle school, I'd say that anything short of stringing them up should be overlooked.

He says he will never lasso students like cattle again.

"Nope. I'm takin' a course in mule skinnin' now," he told reporters. "Then, I can lasso 'em like mules."

Unreal. Here is a teacher who is actually being creative and trying to teach the kids in a non-boring way, and he gets suspended. Guess his students can look forward to sitting in their seats reading out of a book for the rest of the year.

"I can lasso 'em like mules."
How exactly do mules lasso? ;-)

Unless I am incorrect, I believe you must lasso them AND tie both legs and 1 arm together in less than 7 seconds for it to count.

It's a lot easier to catch seventh graders in a trap baited with junk food.

Hammie, you are not incorrect, unless you are.

Sooo...is that what they're calling these 'relationships' between teacher and student now?

"Did you hear about Mrs. Johnson? She was arrested for having an appropriate relationship with a male student, but the police are now calling her crime "lassoing with a lariat."

"Really? I thought she just ran over the student with an old, ugly Ford truck with a nice option package."

No noose is good noose
