Mean girls

What is the world coming to? Hot on the heels of "Slap Corey" and news of his real-life bashing (which reports suggest may have been a PR stunt) comes reports of a new craze at an elite Melbourne girls school. It's "Slapfest Days" where - and this is a quote from Tory Maguire's column in today's The Daily Telegraph "Girls not putting out for the boys down the road, wearing the wrong jeans or generally not fitting in get slapped on the arms, back or legs - where ever and whenever the teacher isn't looking." Gives the "mean girls" label a whole new meaning. Makes you wonder if it's restricted to Generation Y - or whether they're the ones who just started it!
