In Powell, Ohio, seven boys aged 14-15 are facing charges in juvenile court after allegedly serving their teachers crepes filled with their bodily fluids.

The alleged incident occurred on May 16 but charges have only just been filed by the Delaware County Sheriff's Office after a thorough investigation which included sending the crepes for testing.

Brad Koffel, an attorney for four of the boys, all of whom attend Olentangy Hyatts Middle School, claims his young clients were influenced by internet culture, saying:

"I believe this is a form of 'YouTube Flu' where kids are influenced by dumb pranks they see YouTube 'celebrities' do – it is a game of getting views, clicks and likes."

Detective Jaison Kridler believes two groups of boys made the plan to "prank" their teachers days in advance. One group of four boys even went so far as to bring a bag of semen into school, which they sprinkled over a crepe during a crepe-making activity in class.

After allegedly tainting the crepe (while a student blocked the scene from view of the teacher), they served the concoction to the instructor, who ate it.

One boy is also being charged with destruction of evidence (a class three felony) for allegedly deleting text messages and photos connecting them to the incident.

The remaining three boys are charged with serving four teachers BBQ sauce mixed with their urine. Once again, the urine was brought in from outside school, mixed with chicken, and served to the teachers.

Three of the boys are being charged with the class five felony "assault on a teacher," while the other four are being charged with "complicity to assault a teacher" (also a class five felony).

Though Koffel said the boys would face consequences for their actions, he emphasized the punishment would be age-appropriate.

"They are not adults and they are not going to be punished like adults."

With the exception of reliable movie showtimes, live performances rarely start at the exact indicated time.

But a few minutes of delays are easily forgivable, especially for touring concerts due to the complex nature of setting up in every city.

According to a February 2019 decision by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment means that a woman may go topless in any place that a man may go topless.

This earlier court ruling was the basis of Effie Krokos' argument when she was ticketed—months after the decision—for being topless in her fiancé's front yard in Loveland, Colorado.

Most of the time, dress codes are there for a reason. Sure, there are the unfair instances of "no spaghetti straps at school" and "no jeans at the office". But at the same time, there are certain work environments that don't call for inappropriate wear. And when you go in for that first interview, you've got to leave a good impression.

On a recent visit to Toronto, Tom Felton—the actor behind Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise—shared a hilariously self-deprecating shot from his visit to a Harry Potter exhibit.

While there, Felton donned a Slytherin robe and posed next to a picture of his younger self as Malfoy, looking...well, a bit rough around the edges.
