Take a bite out of these bad apples.
Yesterday in the New York Post, there was a story on Stuyvesant High School, the downtown Manhattan school thought to be the premiere public high school in the city. According to the Post,
Students in the school’s Class of 2010 were encouraged to create displays listing classmates they considered the sexiest under such headings as “I’d tap that,” “hotties,” and “loves.” The lists were showcased last week in a second-floor atrium.
Kids at the downtown Manhattan school, the city’s premiere public high, also came up with original list headings like “biddies” — which one girl defines as “totally platonic girl crushes” — and lists that referred to the “bootay”s and “hips” of individual kids.
A senior-run Facebook page on the Class of 2010′s “crush lists” says the definition of “I’d tap that” — slang for wanting to have sex with someone — is “self-explanatory.”
“These are for people you think are very attractive and would want to . . .” it said, leaving the sentence unfinished.
Real classy, kids. Incidentally, why were the displays allowed to be posted in the school? We need answers from the school’s administration. When they wake up.

More good news. This from Maureen Dowd in The New York Times.
A group of soon-to-be freshmen boys at Landon, an elite private grade school and high school for boys in the wealthy Washington suburb of Montgomery County, Md., was drafting local girls.
One team was called “The Southside Slampigs,” and one boy dubbed his team with crude street slang for drug-addicted prostitutes.
The young woman who was the “top pick” was described by one of the boys in a team profile he put up online as “sweet, outgoing, friendly, willing to get down and dirty and [expletive] party. Coming in at 90 pounds, 5’2 and a bra size 34d.” She would be a special asset to the team, he noted, because her mother “is quite the cougar herself.”
Before they got caught last summer, the boys had planned an “opening day party,” complete with T-shirts, where the mission was to invite the drafted girls and, unbeknownst to them, score points by trying to rack up as many sexual encounters with the young women as possible.
“They evidently got points for first, second and third base,” said one outraged father of a drafted girl. “They were going to have parties and tally up the points, and money was going to be exchanged at the end of the season.” He said that the boys would also have earned points for “schmoozing with the parents.”
By the way, George Huguely V, who was the University of Virginia lacrosse player charged in the brutal death of his ex-girlfriend, Yeardley Love, a lacrosse player on the university’s women’s team, was a student at Landon.
