Ignorance Is Bliss

Blogging conventions for expressing indignation demand that I place outrageous events in some sort of wider context, preferably to coincide with my own political hobby-horses. But what can be said about this sort of thing?

What manner of ignorant fool threatens and disrupts the life of a school with bomb hoaxes? Flogging’s too good for ‘em etc….

On a lighter note, any school will always have polluters and irritants in its student body. A man in a pub once told me a story about his school in Co. Tyrone, where one individual went under the nom-de-plume ‘The Phantom Shitter’. Perhaps inspired in part by the old Two Ronnies sketch ‘The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town’, this shadowy character would sneak into classrooms at break-time, commit his foul deed and sign ‘The Phantom Shitter strikes again!’ on the blackboard.
