Preparing Our Children to Wage War Against the Shoggoths

Want to laugh so hard you can't breathe? Head on over to The Onion and read this story about one Charles West, an Arkham, Massachusetts school board member who argues for the introduction of the Pnakotic Manuscripts and the Necronomicon into the syllabus. Here's just a taste:

"Our schools are orderly, sanitary places where students dwell in blissful ignorance of the chaos that awaits," West said. "Should our facilities be repaired? No, they must be razed to the ground and rebuilt in the image of the Cyclopean dwellings of the Elder Gods, the very geometry of which will drive them to be possessed by visions of the realms beyond."

I can only aspire to one day be able to write a piece half as funny as this. Brilliant. Enjoy the hilarity in its entirety:

"Lovecraftian School Board Member Wants Madness Added to the Curriculum"

Thanks to fellow LoTTD member Paul Bibeau for bringing this to my attention.

RayRay - Personally, I cannot fathom how Madness and Insanity are not already in the core curriculum.
