The Facts Of Life?

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Remember Lisa Whelchel? She was Blair on “The Facts of Life” and the object of many an adolescent crush (though Eduwonk was always partial to Jo). Well, she’s back in the public eye as an advocate for “hot saucing.” Hot saucing is a bizarre form of discipline for kids involving applying hot sauces to their tongues as punishment (obviously, Louisiana parents will have to think of something else…).

For a lot of people, like these Washington Post readers (and Eduwonk), hot saucing leaves a bitter taste. But, if this is the new craze it could be great news for these folks

No word on whether Tootie, Natalie, or Jo are also big on hot saucing. Let’s hope not.
