Parents of students on the dance team at a Texas high school allege members of a rival team prepared a gift of baked goods laced with rat poison and bleach, reports UPI.
Exchanging gifts and pranks is a tradition among Texas high school dance and cheerleading teams before football games. But the parents from Andress High School in El Paso said putting poison and laxatives in brownies and cupcakes and giving them to unwitting rivals is well beyond a prank.
Bea Saenz, whose daughter is on the Andress dance team, told the El Paso Times she wants the students from the school's cross-town rival, Chapin, to face criminal charges.
El Paso Independent School District officials Tuesday said that three members of the Chapin Sapphire Dance Team were suspended for three days and will face further punishment after admitting that they baked laxative-laced brownies for the Andress High School Dance team.
So wait a minute. The exchanging of baked goods is a long standing tradition? I can guarantee that this isn’t the first time that someone has pulled the old “rat poison and bleach cupcake mix” prank. These cheerleading squads have probably been doing it for years, the girls actually enjoyed it because they didn’t have to manually purge after snacking on their treats.
