Hat tip to Rory for this strange story. Apparently there is a practice at Sde Boker Academy, located in the Negev, that might surprise a lot of us. What is this time-honored tradition? Let me tell you.
It's losing your virginity on top of David Ben-Gurion's grave. Apparently, students have been doing this for years.
"My friends and I always talked about it," one grad told Radio South. "We'd heard about it for years"
The student said that while he had never had sex at the gravesite, many of his friends "seized the opportunity" to maintain the school tradition.
But my favorite line from this article?
Academy angry, Ben-Gurion's grandson happy
His grandson is happy?! Too funny.
If the information is true, I think it's great. I'm happy that years after my grandfather died, he continues to inspire our youth and still gives the country an erection."
"But I wouldn't have thought a cold, hard stone was the best place to have sex," he said.
What happened to the backseat of one's car?
