Bown chicka bown bown

Something tells me this is not what Van Halen had in mind when they penned their infamous song Hot for Teacher. Unbelievable to me that in the times of constant reports, from coast to coast, of inappropriate contact between educators and students, who knew gratuitous semi nude teachers would be sitting right there in Cocoa Beach, Florida?

Something tells me the Board of Education in Brevard County, Florida is a wee bit liberal, yes?

While I applaud the efforts to raise money for the American Cancer Society, I think junior and senior high school teachers bearing it down to the bare skin to make a calendar is just a smidge over the top. This photo is the group of teachers who so willingly donned shirts for a good cause.

One of the teachers, Mr. August, claimed the kids don't like to look at their "goofy teachers" however, he did think that "a lot of moms really like the calendar." Oh really. I feel like I am about to sip a dangerous (dangerous, bizarre and completely unwelcome) beverage mixed of equal parts Porky's, American Pie, and Desperate Housewives.

And the cherry on top? (of course, no pun intended) the Principle of the school, Tim Cool (Principal Cool, are you serious?) said he was easily persuaded to pose because the calendar supports a worthy cause. A year ago, his mother died of cancer, so the picture also was a tribute to her, he said.

I am not sure I can think of a single cause that would warrant my child posing semi-nude for a calendar in my memory, honor, or anything else. But then again, we don't live down in
Cocoa "Awwwww yeah boyeeeeee" Beach.

Before I go, I would like to comment that apparently, at least the Ab Roller is a staple down at the Beach. My oh my, some of these cats don't skip the crunches but I am not even going to comment on the guy in the front row.

Thanks Detention Slip for sharing this tidbit.
