A mayor has called for an entire school board to resign or face child sex charges after underage pupils on his patch were tasked with a creepy writing exercise.
Liberal Arts II students at Hudson High School in Hudson, Ohio, were assigned several weird writing prompts, including "Write a sex scene you wouldn't show your mom", "Describe your favorite part of a man's body using only verbs" and "Write an X-rated Disney scenario".
In response, Hudson Mayor Craig Schubert said at a Monday school board meeting that if those responsible didn't resign, they would be charged with child sex violations.
"It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom," he said.
"I've spoken to a judge this evening and she's already confirmed that.
"So I'm going to give you a simple choice: either choose to resign from this board of education or you will be charged," the mayor added, being met with rapturous applause from parents, who also spoke at the meeting.
Daily Mail USA reported that the mayor then stormed out of the meeting, to more applause.
Ohio law prohibits sending "harmful" or obscene material to, or sharing it with, a minor, although it is unclear the material shared with the school children falls foul of this statute.
News 5 Cleveland reported that the prompts come from the book 642 Things to Write About, material that had reportedly been on the curriculum for six years as part of an extra credit class.

"Do not sexualize our kids! The raw filth that snuck past the gatekeeping functions of this board of ed. in '642 Reasons' was disgusting,” said parent Morris Norman to the same title.
Monica Havens, a former teacher, said at the meeting: "I can't even wrap my brain around as a teacher, I don't care if it's for college credit, these are minors.
Hudson High School Principal Brian Wilch said at Monday's meeting: "There are times we need to take a step back, reflect and get better.
"We did not exercise our due diligence when we reviewed this resource and we overlooked several prompts that were not appropriate. We felt terrible. You can't unsee them," he said.
Hudson City Schools Superintendent Phil Herman said in a statement that the books are being collected from students and that an internal investigation is underway.
