(Newser) – Should you have the stomach to watch this, it might be one of the more horrifying 59 seconds of your life. Rosemount High School, in the Minnesota town of the same name, is finding itself on the unfortunate end of a viral video that depicts a prank planned by the staff during a pep rally, in which blindfolded students received some passionate-looking kisses, and were then supposed to guess who the smoocher was. What the winter sports team captains didn't know was that they were locking lips with their parents.

As KARE 11 reports, the gag "went awry." "I know there are people who are upset about what they have seen and as principal I am responsible for what happens here. For all the people who are offended, they are genuinely offended, and I owe them an apology," said principal John Wollersheim, who also argued that the short clip wasn't a true reflection of the 30-minute assembly.

I think that those with filthy minds are the most offended. As long as sex wasn't the idea behind the prank, it's just a prank... albeit a bad one. Get a beer and mellow out. It's the holidays and Denver and New England plays today.

Not that I have dutifully chastised this in a previous posting ...it does remind me of an old joke from high school Question: What's worse than kissing your grandmother? Answer: Kissiing your grandmother and having her slip you the tongue. (this would always et agroup cries of revulsion, as it should)

I don't know which is creepier the perv that came up with the idea or the parents who agreed to do it or the administrator who allowed it to happen. There MUST have been in the parents minds SOME inkling of the possibility that their hormone driven offspring would kiss back in a romantic nature. Not to mention who would scar their kid for life with the thought that they went to even "first base" with their parent. A couple of those guys were rounding second heading toward third. I have four daughters and could not even fathom the idea of doing this under ANY circumstance.
