Sandusky is a Monster, Not a Joke

Posted on the 11 December 2011 by A Girl In Converse @_girlinconverse
Lately, I've been overhearing people use the phrase, "Watch out, or you'll get Sanduskied" or "They'll give you the old Sandusky."
Too soon? It could be 1000 years from now and it would still be too soon. That's just sick. Too many lives have been ruined by this mess, and I'm all for comic relief, but I can find none in this situation.
The sad thing is, there's a good chance this could unfortunately catch on to describe child abuse. Anyone ever hear the phrase 'going postal'? Yeah, that come from somewhere.
Having a direct experience with Penn State and the earthquake that hit it this past month, I will never think that Sandusky should be used as any phrase but to describe a monster. People need to grow up. Children were sexually assaulted and traumatized for life.
So this is your warning: DO NOT SAY THIS AROUND ME. There is no saying what kind of monster I could turn into...
