Melanie Minnie, Nursery School Teacher, Crams 19 Kids Into Hatchback For Class Trip.

Who needs a bus when you have a hatchback? A teacher in South Africa stuffed 19 of her nursery school students into her hatchback to make a trip to a local burger joint for lunch.

According to Jalopnik, Melanie Minnie was pulled over by police in South Africa when authorities noticed that she had six children in the back of Renault Clio. Upon closer inspection police counted 10 children in the back seat and another three on the front seat.

Minnie said that her kids were hungry and she decided to take them out to lunch. The nursery school teacher said that it was the first time, and the last time, that she would try to fit 19 kids into hatchback. The Renault Clio, by the way, is designed to seat about five people.

Minnie told the South African paper Beeld:


“This is the first time we went on an outing – and the last time. I will never do that again.”

The NY Daily News reports that Minnie was fined $60 for overstuffing her car with students.


*****************************************************************************************************

The article is a little confusing on the numbers. For clarity ...... She had 6 of them in the back hold, 10 in the back seat and 3 in the front.

She might have got away with it if she had dressed them in clown costumes.


OK CDC do your comedic best.

You always want to sit in the back of the school bus but you never want to sit in the back of the hatchback.

Man, and I thought it was an accomplishment in high school when we fit 13 of us in a Camry and did a lap around the block. Although I guess we were bigger than these kids.

Either way thanks for the story. I can't stop laughing when I look at those pictures.

Instead of the kitchen, we'll put 20 seats there. And instead of toilets, we'll make holes so people can go poopy while they're in their seats.

There...do I win the contract now?

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

These are little nursery school kids, which everyone knows you can stuff more of into small spaces. I'd give you guys the nod for the Darwin over this chick even if she probalby is hotter than you.
