Some lads in full school uniform played truant over in New Zealand, so that they could go and watch Boobs on Bikes – a dazzling array of topless men and women on motorbikes.
The school lads had a hoot of a time.
Six of them must have looked so darned happy that a quick thinking newspaper photographer snapped them.
That is how the lads found themselves on page one of a newspaper.
Their headmaster wanted to expel them, which would have been rather harsh, given that they were uniformed, neat, tidy, sober and well behaved. They had spent their time staring at boobs and bikes, not sniffing petrol or torturing kittens.
What really disturbs me about this story?
The name of the school: Shirley Boys' High School.
Surely someone should be punished for that.
