§ Synopsis “Janie, a tour guide, is being arrested. She is being charged with vandalizing a school bus and assaulting a 250-pound bus driver. Janie’s defense is that her group of 7th graders ran amok in the Washington, D.C. zoo. Two boys spent the day jumping in piles of elephant poop, and three girls ate cotton candy, got covered with it, and ultimately were attacked by a swarm of African Killer Bees. Meanwhile, the rest of the boys got into a pissing contest by climbing on the stalls and aiming at the urinals. Janie was, unfortunately, downwind of it! Ultimately, when Janie finally gathered all the students together, she realized that she was on the wrong bus—heading toward, of all places, PG County.
