Joke: Lipstick in the Catholic School

I receive many emails to forward, but I never do.  This is one I received.  It is a joke and it's too funny.  Enjoy!

According to a news report, a certain private Catholic school in
Brisbane was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of
12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put
it on in the bathroom. That was fine provided it was of a natural or
neutral skin tone, but after they put on their lipstick they would press
their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next
day the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal, Sister Paschal, decided that something
had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them
there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were
causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the
mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the
mirrors, Sister Paschal asked the maintenance man to show the
girls how much effort was required.

He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and
cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints
on the mirror.

There are teachers.... and then there are educators

This was very amusing... I wish we all had the presence of mind to use techniques like this instead of just quarreling endlessly!
