Making babies cry is a sport in Japan.

Babies, held by amateur sumo wrestlers, cry loudly during a baby-crying contest at Sensoji temple in Tokyo April 28, 2007. Eighty-four babies born in 2006 took part in the event, which is held to pray for the babies' health and growth. The winner of the contest is the baby who cries the loudest.

Maybe something like "What is the most evil contest in the world" might send the comedians into potentially productive territory. I'm sure we can find some other bad stuff.

I'll say "picture researchers" here anyway, just in case.

Blatantly unusable, but what was the most deadly act of mass murder at an American school?

The Bath School Disaster

The Bath School disaster is the name given to three bombings in Bath Township, Michigan, USA, on May 18, 1927, which killed 45 people and injured 58. Most of the victims were children in second to sixth grades attending the Bath Consolidated School.

The perpetrator was school board member Andrew Kehoe, who was upset by a property tax that had been levied to fund the construction of the school building. He blamed the additional tax for financial hardships which led to foreclosure proceedings against his farm. These events apparently provoked Kehoe to plan his attack.

c.f. 32 people killed in the Virginia Tech incident.
