    I really don't see anything wrong with it. I've had teachers make similar mildly off color jokes. And frankly I see this as a very mild off color joke. At worst he should've got a off the record talking to. Firing him is a complete over reaction by the school and I'm sure he'll get his job back. No way the teacher's union is going to allow this.

    I think you missed my point entirely. Look at the three questions I asked, and answer them.

    I don't want to answer your questions, so there. Maybe you should post a poll, asking the general public here for their opinions?

    I really expect nothing different from this part of Kansas, though. Shawnee Mission is as uptight, white, conservative and religious as you're likely to find anywhere in the U.S.

    I have a high-schooler, and that teacher's joke was EXTREMELY VANILLA compared to what her classmates talk about in a given day.

    Such a joke would have sailed over an "innocent" kid's head.

    Maybe their heads were excited and that made them too big for the joke to actually get over them?
