Do you know the muffin man?

On Wednesday, a Dallas high school made the news when 18 teachers went to the hospital after ingesting tainted muffins which had been delivered to the high school by a young man and placed in the teacher's lounge. They described the symptoms of the stricken teachers on the news. I laughed and turned to husband and said "It's pot, only they've left out the primary symptom: undeniable urge to munch on crisp salty snack foods."


Then in the Thursday news, guess what? Turns out the muffins were tainted with marijuana. I'm betting they may make progress locating the perp if they test the muffins for a wee bit of DNA, too. Sure, it would be overkill, but he was already committing a felony - what's a little bodily fluid amongst strangers?



Police continue to look for the delivery man, as other area teachers secretly hope for a delivery.


Friday morning I'm going out of town for a few days. I possibly will check in at some point. If not, see you late Monday night. Have a great weekend! I'll re-post some of my old favorites for the days I'll be gone. Cheers!

And further side effects to this sinister poisoning were laughing their asses off for hours and eating the refridgerator...

I'd question whether they find any bodily fluids in those muffins actually. Putting pot in muffins seems to me an act of love, putting in spunk, not so much. Well, self-love, maybe, but let's not go all American Pie on this.

Have a fantastic weekend! Up here this long weekend is fondly known as "May two-fer", the hoser reference to both the date and the fact the 24-bottle cases of beer are freely consumed. (some Canuck trivia to tide you over)

I am always super paranoid about eating food from unknown sources....and this is why. I'm even weirded out about potluck at church or anywhere else. Now I can be MORE paranoid...

My parents always told me that being a teacher was rewarding. But would I listen?

ranger tom - I guess you would wonder about the teachers who ate the brownies but reported no ill effects!

barbara - actually, I was thinking of pee or spit. In any case, ew. kinda sorry I went there!

june cleaver's revenge - INDEED! By the way - where did you go?? I can't find your blog!!!

shpprgrl - yeah, I feel a bit paranoid about extra ingredients, but then again, life's too short to worry over it very much...

nongirlfriend - yeah, feel free to dump me some muffins like that any day!

tam - *LOL* I guess they'll all be out on worker's comp because of pot contamination

ben heller - you got it - I'll be by the dessert table if you need me

lj - see what you missed out on? I dunno, I think the punishment outweighs the rare reward of a few tainted muffins
