thought this was funny, came only days after some european darts team ate a mushroom containing cake by accident.
------------------------------------------------------ BERLIN (Reuters) - Teachers in a German school have been treated in hospital after gobbling up an anonymously donated chocolate cake, unaware it was laced with hashish, authorities say.
Some 10 teachers from the school in the northern town of Lueneburg were treated for nausea and dizziness after sharing out a cake left at the door to their staff room, a police spokesman said on Wednesday.
"They thought it was food poisoning, but the doctors quickly recognised the problem," the spokesman said. "They showed all the classic signs of people under the influence of drugs."
The spokesman said the teachers had not suspected anything because it was customary for them to buy cakes from the schoolchildren as part of a fund-raising project.
Blood tests and a sample of an uneaten slice of cake revealed it had been doctored with hashish. The teachers were later discharged and police said they had not yet identified who was responsible for the prank.
i wonder if this was a cake that was taken from one of those bake sales, and if it was origonally intended for the student body...
"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"
"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."
When teachers at Herder school in north Germany discovered a chocolate cake outside their room, they suspected nothing.
Pupils had often brought in cakes to raise money for charity, so staff sliced it up and tucked in.
But before too long, 10 teachers from the elite school in L?neburg started trembling, feeling unwell and suffering from hallucinations.
Police called in to investigate confirmed that the cake had contained large amounts of hashish.
All 10 teachers were treated at a clinic after eating the cake on Wednesday but were later released. The remains of the cake were being examined, police spokesperson Michael D?ker said.
"The cake was left outside the room on Wednesday morning before the break," the school's spokesperson, Hans-Christian H?hne, told The Guardian on Thursday night.
"Someone brought it in. A lot of people then had a slice and three-quarters of the cake was eaten. About two or three hours later they all started feeling sick. My colleagues were very afraid."
The teachers had suspected nothing because for the past six years pupils had been bringing in cakes to support a radioactive measuring station in Chernobyl, he said.
H?hne added: "It's impossible to say whether a student or someone from outside was responsible. Either way, it was a bad joke. In future we'll insist that pupils put their names on cakes." - Guardian Unlimited ? Guardian Newspapers Limited 2004
