Teacher Allegedly Gave Middle Schoolers A 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Word Search

Kids were faced with words like 'bondage,' 'submissive,' 'spanking' and others we can't print.

"Fifty Shades Of Grey" fever has swept the nation, leaving a path of destruction in its wake, from lawsuits over faulty "Fifty Shades" lube to a spike in sex toy injuries. It was only a matter of time before the scourge would corrupt the children. A middle school teacher on Monday allegedly handed out a "Fifty Shades"-themed word search to eighth grade students, and parents are nonplussed.

The word game was passed out to at least five children at Monessen Middle School outside of Pittsburgh, before the error was realized. Upon receiving the sheet, kids were faced with words like "bondage," "submissive" and "spanking," alongside a bunch we can't print.


There's something hilarious about seeing "bestseller" listed with "paddling" and whatever is under those censors.

The school board wouldn't reveal who put the smutty search into students' hands, but said an investigation is underway. A parent of one child told WTAE that his son said a teacher passed it out. A school board member seemed to confirm that, telling the affiliate, "It was a huge but unintentional error and collected from the five students involved as soon as it was realized. Unfortunately one copy was taken by a student who then posted it on social media."

In keeping with the theme of the source material, it sounds like someone at this school is about to get punished. Wait, maybe that was the culprit's goal all along!
