School, ugh

I love this piece from the Onion, about the entire nation has to report for scoliosis testing, as it really brings back all those terrible memories from school. Embarrassment, dismay, horror, all the things we felt when we had to go to some dreadful mandatory thing, whether it was a video about menstruation or everyone lining up in the hallway for mumps jabs, which happened to me when I was 13, despite already having had mumps, or climbing that perishing rope in gym, or whatever it is. There are several in this story and by casting them as something adults will be forced to do the Onion makes a brilliant point.
