    Tots gone wild! Preschoolers busted for noise
    Officials clamp down on tots' raucous disco after neighbor complains

    updated 12:31 a.m. ET, Tues., Aug. 19, 2008
    WELLINGTON, New Zealand - A New Zealand kindergarten disco was broken up by authorities for pumping out "Bob the Builder" music too loud.

    While the preschoolers were dancing at the One Tree Hill Kindergarten in Auckland, an unhappy neighbor was busy complaining, The Dominion Post newspaper reported on Tuesday.

    A red-faced noise control officer from the local council turned up at 6:30 p.m. and told partygoers that the music was too loud, and they would have to turn it off.
    "I think he must have been pretty embarrassed ... we're planning to frame the notice," head teacher Lisa Gordon told the newspaper.

    Luckily for the kids, it was close to bedtime, with the disco scheduled to finish at 7 p.m. The disco was an annual event, and this was the first time noise had been a problem, Gordon said.

    Lisa I am shocked and stunned at your inflammatory language. How can you be so city dwellerist!!!!! Who would ever suggest that a person is more likely to be one thing or another just because of where they come from!!!!!!!

    Thee should wash thee gob out wi soap and water, thee stirrer upperer of istist feelings thee!! If thee persists thee shalt find theesen labelled 'kiwi-basher' and condemned to the taped-up mouth department in the bowels of the forum where only the condemned kiwi-bashing taped-up mouth bad people are sent. Koko and I, quite enjoy it there. A place where we can drink the sweet waters of opinionism without being told to go home and get over it. I'm not sure I can continue to acquaint myself with such lowly beings as thee. I may have to resort to watching telly instead but only when the Olympics have finished.

    At least neither of you blamed us Yanks, who aren't all as loud as some are. ...But let's not get too wound up again, shall we? Putin and Bush are creating WWIII well enough on their own.

    Nuthin at all Selch. I dint mean strange as in weird. I just meant strange coz bees are usually the kind of hurty, stingy, scary things people are compelled to veer away from. You encourage them to build small townships in your garden

    I aint visiting Selch, not even if you beg. I told you before, one sting from one of them little critters and it could be curtains for me. They scare the bejesus out of me

    Didn't I tell you; I'm bringing them with me in September? Taffy said I could keep them at his place while we're in Waikato

    They're actually very gentle, and even sweet. I've only gotten stung when I accidentally put the squeeze on one. They tickle when they walk on my hands.
