The Prodigy's Blog "Revenge of the 5th"

May 5, 2016

May the 4th has come and gone and many of us are hung over from our Star Wars binge watching. And with the passing of the 4th comes the revenge of the 5th. In honor of the dark side, here's a great story about a high school student who is facing serious charges after exposing his junk in the school yearbook.

 

This teen’s football teammates dared him to take the yearbooks team photo with his junk hanging out. Unfortunately for him, people noticed. The police arrested him and he is now facing 69 counts of Indecent Exposure. All of this over a silly prank. But does the punishment fit the crime?

 

BJ doesn't think so. While he doesn't encourage anyone to flash their junk at people, a prank shouldn't lead to someone’s life feeling ruined. People have forgotten that while we have rules to protect us, a light-hearted prank like this deserves something more like community service as a punishment, not possible jail time. 

 

I have to agree with BJ here. While I don't want to see another mans package, it's just a prank. Nobody got hurt and I bet the students found it to be funny. At least they did until he got arrested. His joke definitely had one hell of a punch line. I never did anything this epic, but some people in our class did streak across a football field during one of our games. Everyone found it amusing, mostly because people look funny while running naked. And no one got arrested.

 

What about you, what was the dumbest thing you did when you were a teen? Did you pull off an epic prank?
