things that make you say uhhhh department

None of the 31 schools in Puyallup, Washington, were allowed to observe Halloween this year: no ooky spooky wall hangings, no costumes, in short, no fun.

The first official reason: Halloween parties and costumes detract from the district's core mission of academic achievement in a competitive world.

The second official reason: "We have been contacted by followers of the Wiccan religion, and they indicated they have been offended after seeing elementary school depictions of witches with long noses, warts, cauldrons and such,'' said Tony Apostle, the superintendent who banned Halloween.

You know what's obnoxious? Holier-than-thou Wiccans.
