Scientists at the University of New England have finally debunked the ancient myth that "It's all good fun until somebody loses an eye."

The group of psychologists monitored the behaviour of two hundred children at a primary school in inner Sydney over the course of a week. In the last two days of the week the researches used a sharp stick to poke out the eyes of fifty of the students.

Much to the researcher's surprise, one hundred and eighty of the children continued playing uninterrupted and a further ten continued playing after sitting down for bit. The remaining ten students had to be sent home after they refused to stop crying.

"The results are astounding," said lead researcher Dr Philip Oster. "For generations mothers have told us not to run about hitting each other with sticks because if someone loses an eye, the fun will end. We've found this to be absolute rubbish. Thanks Mum, thanks a lot. How much time have I wasted!"

Dr Oster and his team are now very keen to see if stepping on a crack will, in fact, break your mothers back.

"I hope so. I really hope it snaps it in half." Dr Oster stated, before quickly adding "I mean that in a dispassionate, scientific way of course."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
