Too few headlines feature the word "wedgie," and I thank Whittier Vocational Technical High School and the school administrators for helping to rectify that. A few players on the the football team are accused of giving wedgies to younger team members. And since that violates the school's hazing policy, they're going to be suspended. One student offered this opinion.

"It's a harmless thing everybody does and the people in school now all do it. It's better than doing drugs in school and that's the truth," said student Phil Blankenship. "At least they're not smoking pot or doing crack on the street corner waiting for the bus. They're just giving harmless wedgies."


Seriously. It's the Whittier Vocational Technical High School... what are we expecting from these kids? Administering wedgies is probably one of the more intellectual pursuits that these kids are involved in. If this kid takes it with a smile on his face, then I'm sure that the young Whittier students will be fine.
