Update, September 4, 2019: It’s all fun and games until you catch a felony charge. A few months ago, news emerged of a grotesque prank at an Ohio middle school, in which a group of 14-year-old boys laced food prepared for a class with their own bodily emissions before serving it to their teachers. It’s the sort of prank native to bad comedies of the ‘80s and ‘90s, but sickening in real life, and could lead to severe consequences for all involved.

Local affiliate WBNS reports that all seven boys associated with the “prank” have now been charged by prosecutors. The most severe of the charges calls for felony assault against one of the boys, who allegedly planned the whole caper days in advance. In the coming weeks, the rest will face assault and complicity to assault charges before a juvenile court judge.

Maybe that’ll get the point across. Either way, the seven boys will have to move through the rest of their lives as a person who made their teachers ingest bodily fluids, or aided and abetted the same.

Original story, May 21, 2019: School officials in the Columbus, Ohio-suburb of Powell have turned over investigation of a rather gross classroom incident over to authorities.

Even The Takeout staff, normally immune to such repulsive stories, has decided against publishing specific details.

Middle school students were being investigated for allegedly putting bodily fluids into food, which was then served to teachers.

Every staff member at Hyatt Middle School was told to not speak to the press, but according to press accounts, it involved students posting the alleged offense on social media.

News reports alleged that students in a home economics class were preparing crepes as part of a project, and that two specific bodily fluids were added to the dish and served to teachers, which was then filmed and shared among students.

Under normal circumstances, The Takeout would reveal what these two fluids were, but frankly in this instance, further details would seem tawdry.

Readers expect better of us.

In no way would we stake our sterling reputation and publish such unsavory details.

...it involved students posting the alleged offense on social media.

I know people are really dumb, but posting your crimes on the internet just takes that to a new level.
