Sharp 4th-grader uncovers pencil gaffe
When ten-year-old Kodi Mosier sharpened his pencil at school, he noticed the anti-drug message printed on it changed considerably. It went from “Too Cool to Do Drugs” to “Cool to Do Drugs.” Further sharpening led to “Do Drugs.”
This was not the intent of the Bureau for At-Risk Youth in New York who distributed the pencils to elementary schools. The manufacturer of the pencils recalled them and reversed the message as it should have done in the first place. Kodi commented “I guess they didn’t sharpen their pencils.”
Good eye, Kodi.
