Your Daily Dose of Hee

Kay. Enough politics. Let’s talk about little kids swilling margaritas:

“It is with great regret that I tell you that your child may have been exposed to alcohol today at lunch,” said the missive signed by Alexander Harvey IV, head of the private Alexandria Country Day School.

It was tequila and margarita mix, to be precise, left in the refrigerator in a pitcher and mistaken for limeade by kitchen staff, who poured it into small cups and served it to children as a lunch treat, he wrote.


Bill Paxson, a former U.S. congressman who has two children at the school, said yesterday that his third-grader was “very excited about it.”

“Her words were, ‘Something really fun and illegal happened today at school.’ Then she proceeded to say what happened. She said it was gross and disgusting stuff. . . . She said she tasted it and it was so disgusting she couldn’t drink it.”

Margarita mix. Ew. Kids should learn early not to drink anything with the TGI Fridays logo on the bottle.

Straight-up scotch at my elementary schools or nothing at all, dammit.
