The chocolate chip bowling was disgusting.
There is a video of Emerald and Allison sending each other good luck wishes before the pageant, it's cute.

They ran a bunch of episodes back to back on Sunday, including multiple episodes featuring Mackenzie (watched back to back, they made me think she's really playing things up for the camera/audience--she can switch the drama on and off on a dime; her father also said at one point that it was just easiest to give her what she wants, so that's what he does, which made me think he was at least as ineffectual a parent as the mom). In one episode, an exhausted little girl of about four, dressed in a showgirl type outfit, had a candy cigarette handing out of her mouth and the rest of the pack in her little hand. She looked like a drunk hooker. How could her parents possibly think that was cute?
SAVE THE WHALES..THE OCEANS DIE..WE DIE!!!
Here's a scary thought: do you think the candy cigarettes were somehow a part of this toddler's on-stage act? Or a reward for doing her routine well?
I'm not sure which one's more appalling.
I do know they make candy chalk. I've always been tempted to palm a piece of it and just start absentmindedly chewing on the candy chalk while at the board to see how long it would take before a student said something. Seems like a great April Fool's Day joke to me, as it doesn't really hurt anybody or anybody's feelings.
That would be hilarious!!!

When you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you hit by the one that yelps!
The students in question are way past kindergarten age. Chronologically anyway. Besides, if I did it as an April Fool's Day prank, I'd explain that it was a prank and the chalk wasn't real.
Trust me--if I thought it would actually make anyone eat chalk, I wouldn't even think about it. Though it wouldn't surprise me if one of those people on My Strange Addiction was a chalk eater.
