(17 is a sacred number in their culture.)

* In GordonKorman's book ''[[MacdonaldHall The War With Mr. Wizzle]]'', the new PointyHairedBoss of an assistant principal introduces lines as a standardized universal punishment (as his job is to modernise the school, the irony of this is immediately lampshaded). The students retaliate by picking a handful to write everybody's lines for them, giving the other students time to sabotage Wizzle's computer, make an InventedIndividual, and so on. (The kids who get picked to do lines soon begin to resent the ones who got assigned to the fun stuff, but they prevail anyway.) By contrast, the Headmaster, Mr. Sturgeon, whose power the students respect, disapproves of lines and prefers to impose lengthy essays as punishment.
