Ghost peppers are known as one of the hottest peppers available. This student brought one to his Long Island, NY school. When he let a few of his friends try some of the pepper they ended up in pain and he ended up with detention. He says the school likened bringing the ghost pepper to bringing LSD to school. The school principal maintains that the punishment will stand. The family's lawyer argues that the school should not be able to limit what kids can bring with them to lunch.
Parents recently received this letter, it is believed to be a senior prank, to notify that their daughters were undergoing an "inspection".
This is similar to a flyer sent around to Lowell High School students:
Believe it or not, penis inspector Richard L. Dong is not real, and Lowell High School doesn't actually require its seniors to pass a penis inspection before they're allowed to graduate - rather, school officials believe the amusing fliers are just a senior prank orchestrated by members of the school's graduating class.
