How's this for punishment?
Trenton O'Neal stood near a light pole at the intersection of Airline Boulevard and Ahoy Drive in Chesapeake for hours on Saturday, a chest-to-trunk poster board of his bad grades dangling from his neck.
"It sucks," said Trenton, who apparently got the message. "I don't want to be out here again. I know that much."
His parents, fed up by their son's lack of effort, conjured up the idea as a way to get through to the 15-year-old Western Branch High School freshman. - HamptonRoads
What a great punishment! /sarcasm
