Parents Upset After Middle School Students Given '50 Shades of Grey' Bondage Puzzles

Parents in a Pennsylvania school district are turning 50 shades of red over word search puzzles given to middle school students based on an erotic novel and movie.
The students in Monessen were given puzzles based on "Fifty Shades of Grey" that contained terms including "spanking," "submissive," "leather cuffs" and "bondage." Other words on the list were more explicit.

Brian Epstein signed The Silkie because he heard them playing in the Cavern Club when he dragged his Savile Row arse in for a gander at the Beatles.

It's assumed that John Lennon always wanted to be someone other than himself on a given day, and that day he wanted to be Bob Dylan for a spell.

And yes The Rolling Stone's 'Satisfaction' is now 50 years old.

Which means it's as far away from us today as ragtime jazz hits of the 1910s were from 1966.
