Today's buzz story comes to us courtesy of the fine town of Tonbridge, in Kent, England, where the British press reports that college girls had to be reprimanded for -- get this! -- catcalling the construction workers on campus. Was it Opposite Day? And if so, can you guys write the blog posts instead? Anyway, in an e-mail to the students, officials scolded:

"It has come to the attention of the college that some female students have been making comments to, or whistling at, the builders both whilst on site and as they walk around the campus."

Oh, those poor construction workers! They are tender souls whose feelings bruise easily. Mmmm, but seriously: Was it wrong for the girls to catcall these guys? Yes, it was (she says with a crooked smile). But if those construction workers think they have it bad, they should try my morning commute to the subway.
