Weekday Mornings 5am-9am
Get this. This Catholic school in New Jersey is taking a lot of heat for asking its female students to "act more like ladies" by making a pledge to NOT CURSE for 30 days. But here's the kicker. MALE students at Queen of Peace High School in North Arlington were instructed not to "swear in the presence of ladies" but were NOT required to make the no-cursing pledge.
Now, I'm not arguing that any of us should cuss like truck drivers but I'm thinking that we ALL should play by the same rules.
But wait, there's more. The plot thickens. Brother Larry Lavallee, the school's principle, claims that the girls have the dirtiest mouths. So, maybe the pledge DOES make sense.
I may have a solution. Just like Ralphie had to pay his dues for his potty mouth in "Christmas Story," maybe all our moms should track us step for step with a bar of soap and threaten to wash our mouths out with that thing if we get out of line.
An ounce of mom equals a pound of prevention. (photo by tokyobootcamp.com)
