    I don't understand people getting offended by something like this. If he said it to a class of 2nd graders would they know what he meant or get the joke? This is the kind of thing you only understand if you already know about it. How can that possibly be harmful?

    wow, if people get upset about this, they should have heard what was said by teacher and student alike in my history class when i was in school

    This is one of those "only in America" moments..

    Seriously, those that should be fired are the school leaders that fired him. He said nothing inappropriate what so ever.

    It's hardly trivial to the man who lost his job and will likely have a very difficult time finding a new job in his chosen profession. I think it also shows a lack of respect for teachers. It is also a huge overreaction.

    I once, during a lecture to junior high kids, meant to write the word public on the board but I accidentally left out the "L" should I still have a job?
