    You can have a pair of gloves with 10 fingers, but you can't put more than 7 fingers in it.

    His mother, Rondi Lance, understands the severity of the situation...

    And yet she sent her little monster off to school with a loaded finger. A school filled with children. Just thank GOD no one was hurt.

    Not to mention giving him a name like Hunter. She really ought to have it changed to something like Apple.

    Indeed, his name is Hunter *Lance*.

    What kind of "parents" doom their child to a lifetime of finger pointing?

    Send CPS to the rescue *immediately*!

    Don't point that thing at me! It has a nail in it!

    Common sense....
    Anyone who doesn't want to cut off the children's fingers hatez the childruns!!!

    Only crazy finger-rights wingnutz are against sensible finger laws. Nobody NEEDS assault fingers!

  • Dweebston||

    Nobody knew why they called him Hunter "Assault Fingers" Lance, but legend has it...

  • Ted S.||

    I'm sure the officials' bullying is frightening children, too.

    Namely the children in the administration

    When I was in school, the boys would occasionally offer up the OK gesture rotated 180^o toward the recipient to indicate "suck it" or "eat me". (FWIW, we, I mean they, called it "the wong".)

    Serious question: These days, would that get the giver suspension at least and a sex criminal record at most?

  • Dweebston||

    Mandatory sensitivity training and an unexpungible note in his permanent file.

    Assistant Superintendent Gail Miller said Lance “frightened some children.”

    and the pussification of America continues.
