When you think of Norway, generous welfare, social tolerance and snow come to mind. Apparently, they are also into sharing blood around. This is sort of like Vampirism, but in reverse:
According to Inger Lise Andersen, director of the Dravhaug kindergarten, the unnamed teacher had returned from a visit to the doctor, where she asked a nurse if she could have some of her blood in a vial to take with her to class.
During the children’s “sharing time,” the teacher reportedly brought out the vial, and poured its contents into a plate for the kids to pass around.
“The children asked if they could touch it and she allowed them,” Andersen told Reuters. “Then they asked ‘how do we get it off?’ so she put her finger in her mouth and the children followed suit.”
Thankfully, the teacher was fired. The blood has also been sent off for analysis to see whether the children could have been infected with HIV or other blood related diseases.
