A truly disgusting prank was met with some very harsh words that got a high school band director suspended.

There's a lesson to be learned from this story: watch what you say online. Even if you're commenting on something truly heinous, your words could end up hurting you more than the people you're criticizing. That's what happened to Cindy Stephens.

Stephens is a teacher and band director at Syvlania High School in Sylvania, Alabama. She, like everyone in Sylvania, was disgusted by a senior prank committed by four students last Tuesday. Almost immediately after graduation, the teenagers took a spreader truck (I don't know how they got their hands on a spreader truck) and used it to spread chicken feces all over the roads surrounding the school. Because in the South, senior pranks involve heavy machinery and industrial quantities of chicken feces.
