Everyone would have been
arrested and jailed here in the US, to save the school from having to explain how she got in.
A Nottinghamshire lad had a "birthday to remember" after a stripper turned up at his school, burst into his drama class and proceeded to flaunt herself like a two-buck hussy as shocked teacher and students looked on. According to the Telegraph, the clothes-shedding strumpet was dispatched to Nottingham's Arnold Hill School and …
I think you are most likely right there, or worse.
Check out this story from yesterday in the good old US of A.
Girl, 13, gets detention for hugging two friends :O
i sure as hell would have paid a lot more attention in class if there was semi naked ladies asking to have cream rubbed on their butts. Gets a big thumbs up from me.
"No one could believe it. Next she ordered him to get on all fours, led him around the classroom and hit him 16 times - once for each year - on the bottom with her whip.
"And in case you're wondering what kind of parent would subject their offspring to this kind of humiliation, the mother in question told the school she'd actually ordered a gorilla "through an agency", but got the cream-loving dog-handler instead. "
...Clearly Mother had heard Junior talking about "spanking the monkey" and just got a bit confused... Could happen to anyone, really...

Fair question actually, because the age of consent in Britain is 16. It's also when you can smoke - or it used to be, the Raj are postponing it to 18 now, along with alcohol. You can also get married with your parents' consent.
Generally if you were talking about "coming of age" it would be 18, being the day when you can have your first legal piss-up.
"It apparently was enough for the honoured guest of this show, since he "ran out of the classroom while the stripper calmly packed her bag and left"."
Anyone who suggests that he ran to a toilet cubicle to rub one out while her image was still fresh in his mind is a filthy rumour-mongrel of the lowest order and I condemn them thoroughly.
"she and her husband told their daughter to go ahead and serve her detentions
because the only other option was a day of suspension for each skipped detention."
Good Old US of A - what a policy. Just keep hugging and not turning up for detentions, see how many stack up before you leave school...
"And in case you're wondering what kind of parent would subject their offspring to this kind of humiliation, the mother in question told the school she'd actually ordered a gorilla"
I'm wondering what kind of parent would send a gorilla to school for their 16th birthday, what a bitch!
It is legal for me (or you) to sodomize a 16 year old in the UK, but illegal to give them a cigarette afterwards (18 up only). It's a mad mad mad world.
Perhaps the rationale for this is that it is quite plausible to think of being accosted by a gang of 16 year olds outside a shop and being coerced into buying them cigarettes, whereas it is not plausible to think of being accosted by said same group and being coerced into buggering them senseless.
However, such ruminations seem to lose all sense in view of some mothers. (I wonder if Martians are so stupid).
You can still legally smoke at 16. You just can't legally buy your coffin nails until you hit 18. No, I don't understand it either.
You can also buy your own beer, wine, cider or perry as part of a meal order at age 16 (having been allowed to drink the stuff since 5, under parental supervision; and "Two pints of wifebeater and a bowl of chips" doesn't count).
From 18, anything legally allowed is yours.
Ah, at least you get everything at age 18 in the UK. The US screwed up some stuff by letting tobacco at 18, but alcohol at 21. Thus even if "coming-of-age" is at 18, you still are barred of most "cool" places because they have a strict 21+ policy. Idiots. </rant>
Anyway ... that birthday party beats the stripper-shaped cake once proposed for a friends' 20th birthday ... whoa!
"I was under the impression it was legal to buy them under the age of 16, just not legal to sell them to anyone under that age."
Recently (starting either this month or last - I forget which) they changed it to being illegal to sell them to anyone under the age of 18 - although as with alcohol, I don't *think* it is illegal to *buy* whatever your age, just illegal to sell it to someone under 18.
In the UK there is no "age of whatever", because the legal systems vary. What may be 16 in Scotland is 18 in England and Wales, and can be 21 in Northern Ireland. Many things, however, are national, such as voting, alcohol and films. It's a sad thing that you can get married in Scotland without parental consent at 16, and while you can then legally and morally shag the missus, you're not legally allowed to watch 18-rated soft porn. You can also join up and serve in Iraq at 16 but you're still not allowed to vote for two years, but that's another issue.
Where's the photos?
@Luther Blissett "It is legal for me (or you) to sodomize a 16 year old in the UK, but illegal to give them a cigarette afterwards (18 up only). It's a mad mad mad world."
Sodomy is illegal in the UK under Section 61 of the Offences Against The Person Act 1861. I beleive this has never been repealed?

Cool quote from a school representative:
"It is in poor taste, reflects poor judgment, and brings discredit to the school and to the persons involved.”
And I agree entirely with that. Unfortunately, in my case, I'd be talking about the detentions, where I believe the representative was talking about the "displays of affection".
Canada is the same way with some butally messed up laws in regards to age.
In Canada it is Legal to:
Smoke at 16, but you Cannot buy Cigarettes until you are 19
You Can serve Alcohol at 18, but Cannot drink until 19
I really question the smoking one, as if it is illegal to sell/provide Cigarettes to any person under 19 under penalty of up to a $50,000 Fine and Jail but it is perfectly legal for a 16 year old to smoke, how are they legally getting the cigarettes?
In the US, you can go to war "for your country" at 18, and get your legs blown off, and get stuck in a chair. Then, if you come back and get drunk because your life is now in shambles, and wheel around town like any self respecting wheel-chair-bound-alcoholic, you can be arrested for under-age consumption and driving under the influence.
