Boy suspended for deliberate air pollution

It is Friday after all. All those that do not laugh when reading this story get extra marks.

Student, 15, Suspended For Passing Gas [Orlando ??]

LAKELAND, Fla. -- A Polk County teenage student has been suspended from school because he intentionally passed gas, according to school officials.

The Lakeland Ledger reported that 15-year-old Jonathon Locked Jr. was suspended from Bill Duncan Opportunity School under a school district rule against disruptive behavior.

School officials said the teen repeatedly passed gas to make other children laugh. They said the smell also made it difficult to breathe.

Locked's father said his son isn't perfect and they're appealing the suspension, saying the district went too far with its punishment.

The solution is obvious. Just tax passing gas.
