Teacher of the year fired for obscene quiz

From WorldNetDaily:

A former teacher of the year in South Florida is hoping to keep her teaching license after she was fired last week for giving her freshman high-school students a creative quiz hinting of sexuality and obscene language.

Kim Littrell's "Keep Your Mind Clean" assignment asked ninth-graders in her English class at Fort Pierce Westwood High School to write down answers to ten questions, with no "bad words" allowed.

One question read: "What is a four-letter word that ends in K and means the same as intercourse?" Hint: You do it all the time, especially when you shouldn't, except when your parents ask what you did in school." The answer, according to Littrell, is "talk."

Other questions and answers included:

  • What is it that a cow has four of and a woman (or man) has only two of? Hint: It's what makes them outstanding in their field. Answer: legs;
  • What four-letter word begins with F and ends with K and if you can't get one, you use your hands? Hint: Think Medieval Times. Answer: fork;
  • What does a dog do that you step into every morning? Hint: There was a time a female was restricted from this. Answer: pants;
  • Name five words, in alphabetical order, that each contain four letters, and end in u-n-t. Hint: One is the name for a female relative. Answer: aunt, bunt, hunt, punt, runt;
  • What is it that all men have one of; it's longer on some men than on others; the pope doesn't use his; and a man gives it to his wife after they're married? Answer: last name.

"I like to have fun with my kids," Littrell told WorldNetDaily, maintaining it was an exercise in critical thinking designed to prompt students to think of clean, rather than dirty responses.

We seem to be having a disturbing rash of government school teachers who “like to have fun with kids” the most notable was Mary Kay Letourneau.

Did I mention this was their teacher of the year?
