Write About Zombies, Go To Jail

WRITE ABOUT ZOMBIES, GO TO JAIL….“Bible baseball” in English class? Yeah, that was probably illegal, says Flea, even back in the Reagan 80s. (Though at least the Godless Heathens won.) Still, it’s better than being arrested and held on $5,000 bail because your writing assignment for English class features zombies taking over a high school.

There’s a lot of that going on post-Columbine. I sometimes think that school officials have gone certifiably insane over this stuff.
