I don't know if this news story is for real but, it sure smells like an urban legend to me.

Pa. students shown X-rated photos in assembly

PITTSBURGH — Officials in a western Pennsylvania school district are apologizing after they say students at a local high school were accidentally shown pornographic pictures during a school assembly.

More than 400 seniors at Norwin High School, about 25 miles east of Pittsburgh, were watching a presentation Friday on the importance of donating blood. School officials say "a few pornographic pictures" on a personal flash drive of a Central Blood Bank representative appeared on the screen.

The Central Blood Bank apologized and said the unnamed employee was suspended indefinitely. School officials apologized and said the police department and prosecutor were notified. A blood-donation presentation for the junior class was canceled.


The moral of this strory; don't keep your vacation pics on your office laptop.

I looked up the local news outlet, the Norwin Star. No shocker here, not one peep about this story in the local news.

Looks like the AP got taken again.

Ok, I did a little more digging and found out the local Pittsburgh News station KDKA did a story on this and actually interviewed wittnesses. KDKA News story

I guess I jumped the gun on this one but you have to admit, it sure does sound like a great Urban Legend.

This one may not have been but I've heard some very much like it over the years. I would be interested to see if others have heard these or some of their own.

Two that come to mind are:

number one. Children are being shown pornographic videos in health and human development classes as sex education. They are being told not to tell their parents about this because "their parent's aren't enlightened enough to understand the need for this type of education". They are also given addresses to websites where they can view pornography on specific "topics".

number two. Students in Kansas public schools are required to study the book of genesis in biology class instead of evolution. They are being told that evolution is a myth concocted by the democratic party to lead them away from god

These two have surfaced from time to time either in emails or circulated in fliers. So, any other ones that people have heard of that are in this general vein?
