From the Washington Times:

Kindergartner garnish turns out to be pot
"MIAMI, March 23 (UPI) -- The garnish a Florida kindergartener sprinkled on his friend's lasagna Monday wasn't oregano, police said, but marijuana.
Staff members at Gratigny Elementary School in north Miami-Dade County said the youngster took the pot from a small plastic bag, The Miami Herald reported Tuesday. When they saw what he was doing he put in on the floor and tried to hide it with his feet. Investigators are questioning the boy's parents. They are also trying to determine whether an older friend asked the boy to keep the bag for him. "

[Wow! They get lasagna in Kindergarten now! I used to get hockey pucks on a bun!]

* Have a woman call the wife of your revengee and very distraught tell her that the next time her husband comes over to sleep with her he could at least call her back once in a while then hang up.

* Call their work claiming you are a detective checking on the status of a person working there that is on the sex offenders list and ask if their job involves working with children in ANY way.
