I Guess Our Local Schools Have Too Much Money

They have to waste their extra money on this idiocy.

FEDERAL WAY, Wash., Dec. 7 (UPI) -- The Federal Way, Wash., school district destroyed lunch menus for 23 elementary schools after an employee added the greeting "Merry Christmas," a report said.

The 11,500 copies of the one-page lunch menu were recycled before they reached students, since the greeting "has a religious connotation for some people," a school spokeswoman told the Tacoma (Wash.) News Tribune.

The December lunch menus -- reprinted last month at a cost of $494 -- now carry a "Happy Holidays" greeting that the spokeswoman said conforms to practices of the school district between Seattle and Tacoma, Wash.

Nobody knows what incalculable damage these brave public employees saved our children from in having to see those offensive words "Merry Christmas". Who knows, they may have been inspired to give gifts to each other and sit on the laps of fat men.

The next time, rather than waste taxpayers dollars on such stupid things, why don't they just invite the local head of the ACLU in, give them a magic marker, and tell them to go to town?
