Teen Peanut Bully Arrested

Teen Peanut Bully Arrested

From the AP by way of the WSJ: A junior high school student in Kentucky was arrested and charged with felony wanton endangerment after planting crumbs from a peanut-butter cookie in an allergic classmate’s lunchbox.

The Pathophilia blog believes that this kind of bullying would happen less often if “peanut” didn’t sound so funny.
