The oddest preschool sticker

I was going through some of the boys art work from preschool. Nearly every day, they'd start out by coloring a picture. And when the picture was done, the teachers would put a sticker on the page.

Check out this sticker that I came across on their papers one day:




Really? REALLY??? What, was this from the "terrible events in history" sticker collection?

I don't know about my boys, but I think I'm fairly disturbed by an "exploding Columbia shuttle" sticker!

What do you think? Is this is the weirdest sticker you've seen?

Wow, I had to stare at that sticker for a moment to figure it out but you are very right....hmmm, I think I would ask the teacher that one. Very strange in deed. Definitely disturbing.

Wow - that is WAY strange, Sally!!

It was evidently designed by someone who was not alive when that tragedy happened. Or it was designed by someone who never had a recent history class. Yikes!

Weid... I don't think it looks like it is exploding though... I bet the teacher hasn't thought twice about it--- I would bring it up.

I bet the stickers were made BEFORE the launch even happened. I interned at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab one summer in college and saw all the marketing crap they put together for each launch ahead of time.

Side note: that was actually one of the coolest jobs ever. I got to see high-def tvs in 1995, before they were available to the public. And I got to interview everyone on the Mars Pathfinder team and drive test versions of the Mars rovers.

I'm HOPING that that was made prior to the tragedy, and that it was just a part of a greater space-themed sticker pack. Then, you're just dealing with a teacher that doesn't realize that the shuttle exploded...

Ok that was in 2003...no excuse to not know it happened! WTH??

that is a very odd sticker. Fortunately preschoolers probably know nothing about the Columbia!

I'm catching up on posts today. I'd have to agree that that was probably manufactured before the tragedy, but it was in really poor taste for the teacher to use it.

If they were a little older, it would be a good teachable moment though.
