This is a question First rude thing I ever saw

Our Ginger Fuhrer's young life was scarred by the discovery of an end-of-the-pier 'What The Butler Saw' machine and a jazz mag shoved behind a toilet cistern. Tell us about the first time you realised that there was more to life than sweet shops and Friday night TV

Not the first rude thing I saw, but...
I was responsible for showing an entire class of 9 and 10 year olds the wonders of the internet. It was a complete mistake, honest. I was student teaching in a class and we were working on a newsletter while their teacher was out of the classroom. We needed a picture of said teacher, so I suggested they just google her name. Surely something might come up.

How was I supposed to know there was a rather risque model by the same name? Fortunately, there was nothing too innocence-shattering, just a bunch of swimsuit photos and naked pictures where she covered all the important bits, but the class quickly filled with awed gasps and giggles as I ran around, trying to close the windows.

I did a similar thing several years later, when working with an over-protected autistic kid who probably wasn't even allowed to use a computer on his own. This time it was some rather lewd paintings of Greek mythological figures. Now, it's just art and nothing to be ashamed of, but I still felt my face go beet-red as he started screaming, "THEY'RE NAKED! THEY'RE NAKED ON THE COMPUTER!" Someday, I'll learn that telling kids, "Just google it" isn't the wisest instruction.

can't check for idiocy.

A rather innocent work colleague
was planning a children's birthday party. She wanted to set up a "Pin the tail on the donkey" game, so image googled for "donkey"...

An important lesson was learned, that day.
