SKOOL'S OUT!

A gratuitous TFI Friday post.

Something that tickled me from Shuggy:
This story made me laugh:
At least 150 High School students in the Denver, Colorado have walked out of class to protest administrators' decision to put a teacher on leave while they investigate remarks he made about President Bush during class, including that some people compare Bush to Adolf Hitler."
It was on News 24. There was all these students demonstrating, some with tape over their mouths. This represents censorship, you see. Gagged for telling the Truth, man.

...

I hope this story is picked up and we get some very funny stories about oppression and free speech and hypocrisy and stuff. Yeah, bring it on. Do you think surfer-dude who thinks Bush is, like, really heavy man - bit like Hitler, should be able to say whatever he believes to be true? So it follows you believe that I should be able to say whatever I damn well please to my classes. If you believe this, you have a mental age of about 17.

He's a Geography teacher, ok? He should have been teaching them about volcanos or continental drift or where your arse is from your elbow or something.
Here's the audio.

Prejudices about appearance aside (no more "Hobbit!" calls from the back please), which of the following two teachers do you think more likely to be the cause of this controversy?



(With apologies to any non-Brits reading this.)
