Just as logical as Abstinence Only programs

From Feministing:
"ABSTINENCE-ONLY DRIVER'S ED.
BY SUZANNE KLEID
- - - -

Thanks for making it out on a rainy Saturday, kids. Slippery out there, huh? Let's get started. We're gonna have some fun today!

Car accidents are a leading cause of death for teenagers. The school board and your elected representatives want to make sure that you and your families are spared from such a tragedy, which is why the money for driver's ed was eliminated from the budget. Whereas last year I was teaching your older siblings how to shift and brake and three-point-turn during a six-week course, it has since been decreed that I actually need just one afternoon to tell you the only piece of safety information I'm permitted by law to share:

The ONLY 100 percent effective method for avoiding car accidents is to ABSTAIN from driving until marriage."

...except pedestrians and passengers can suffer damage from dangerous drivers as well (rapists).

Arrgh...teen drivers. I would rather they be off having sex, as opposed to being on the roads.

Streak,

Is this from the Onion? This has to be a joke!

Speaking of jokes, I'm tagging you for the latest blogging meme thingy.

If you accept (and I know you will) you must:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five other people.
