Teachers Suspended: Pep Rally Claims Two More Victims

Winnipeg (Canada) It's just your normal, everyday high school pep rally... until your teachers perform a lap dance.  "The teachers, who are said to be relatively new to Churchill’s staff, were sent home with pay," according to the article from the Winnipeg Free Press.  You can search out the video on YouTube, but you won't get the link from me.  The cell phone video features a female teacher in a football uniform sitting in a chair in the middle of the gym while a male teacher (in another football uniform... perhaps the opposing school?) simulates a lap dance... for a minute... with gyrations... and other simulated... stuff.

Now, it's no secret that I do not like pep rallies.  But I really don't understand how the lap dance figured in to any normal pep skit.  I do like the student getting in front of the screen shot, looking into the camera saying, "That's so wrong!"

Don't you want to know what they were thinking?  Who came up with this idea, who ran with it, who turned it into something that resulted in suspended teachers?  Don't they know you are supposed to save those skits for inservice days when the kiddos aren't around?!
