MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- A 5-year-old boy took a bag of marijuana to school and was sprinkling it over a friend's lasagna like oregano when a monitor intervened, police said.

Police couldn't tell if the cafeteria workers were giggling at the bizarreness of the incident, or because bag had originally held more. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
However, the monitor failed to notice that while she was dealing with the pot, 13 other 5- and 6-year olds lit up crack pipes. (email@example.com)
And as punishment the boy is now in charge of all baking and snacks for all parent teacher conferences. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In a related story, a nearby beating took place when a drug dealer was found to be selling Italian herbs. (email@example.com)

Ken Burns' version: ( Accompanied by appropriately twangy - and tangy - music. ) "Merri and Mack were shaking a sack of flaky green herbs one day. Along came the Monitor propelled by a janitor and frightened the cheese box a whey." Mathilde "Ma" Goose, Principal. (HerzogVon@aol.com) HerzogVon's gotta be HMO's most glaucoma-free entrant.
The sharp-eyed monitor noticed the sprinkling incident as the child was making change for a million dollar bill. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The five-year-old was reprimanded for ruining good marijuana with cafeteria lasagna. (email@example.com)
Apparently the boy had gotten tired of the Ritalin burritos. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Haven't we all?
When questioned the 5 year-old said he thought it was origami. (TZMAC@aol.com)

Here is a point-free section for the pun-ishers. They came out of the woodwork this round and they all seem to have partaken of a little Italian seasonings, if-ya-know-what-I-mean:
