This makes perfect sense:

Dictionaries have been removed from classrooms in southern California schools after a parent complained about a child reading the definition for “oral sex”.

Merriam Webster’s 10th edition, which has been used for the past few years in fourth and fifth grade classrooms (for children aged nine to 10) in Menifee Union school district, has been pulled from shelves over fears that the “sexually graphic” entry is “just not age appropriate”, according to the area’s local paper.

The dictionary’s online definition of the term is “oral stimulation of the genitals”. “It’s hard to sit and read the dictionary, but we’ll be looking to find other things of a graphic nature,” district spokeswoman Betti Cadmus told the paper.

I’m sure she will – for the kids, of course.

They should probably just ban the English language altogether considering all the filth it can conjure.  But first, Betti Cadmus should busy herself documenting the myriad prurient words, phrases and assorted linguistic goings on.  In the spirit of lending a helping hand, Ms. Cadmus, you can start here.
