From the Top 10 badass umbrellas on a rainy day, to students poisoning a teacher’s coffee, to a feud between Mexico and Burger King, the comment conversation may not have been highly intellectual but at least it was a little fun.
Generally, I don’t like to comment on stories or give my opinion so this was kind of like “forced feedback” for me. Maybe that is just my introversion coming out, but I’d rather read the article and take in everyone else’s perspective because I already know what mine is.
Therefore, I found myself searching for stories that were a lot easier to comment on, a la the comical stories. Instead of reading CNN or the Boston Globe for important news stories of the day, I was checking out Reddit, Digg, and YouTube for stories containing funny headlines.
One of the funniest stories I got into the comment fray on was a story of two middle school students putting poison into their teacher’s coffee cup. The poisonous syrup induced vomiting and forced the teacher to be rushed to the hospital. The two students were arrested, and ultimately expelled from the school.
The comment board was filled with mix reviews about the situations. Some felt it was the teacher’s fault for continuing to drink the coffee even though she knew the students were by the desk and there was some type of syrup in there. Take a look at this comment:
Even if the students were at her desk, she should not have to worry about them putting poison into her coffee. For you to blame this on the teacher is ridiculous. Were you one of those students that blamed your poor grades on the teacher too?
