Kids these days...

A Syracuse high school canceled a dance recently because students were "grinding," a dancing style known in some circles as "freaking." Last week, the local section of the Syracuse Post-Standard published a point-counterpoint piece featuring two high school girls arguing for and against the freedom to freak, respectively.

I'm assuming that it is for lack of any better ideas that some school administrators are turning to the website nofreaking.com to deal with the moral downfall of American youth culture through dance. Through this site, a California-based DJ peddles signs and t-shirts (which also come in babydoll sizes - what?) to "help communicate the message of appropriate dancing during school functions."

The newspaper reported that the designer of the nofreaking.com logo is currently devising more signs that feature other "positions" of freaking. I'm certain that posting stick-figure kama sutra will put an end to all this inappropriate dancing and thus to the risky sexual behaviors that each dance-offender must surely take part in. (NOT.) You know this guy is laughing all the way to the bank. I'm just hoping that there's a school administrator somewhere who truly believes that wearing one of these shirts will help eradicate grinding from school dances.

But really - shouldn't they be going after Abercrombie & Fitch?
