Students at a Palo Alto middle school learned more than school officials ever expected when a recent "career day" speaker extolled the merits of stripping and expounded on the financial benefits of a larger bust.[snip]
According to Fried and students who attended the talk, Fried told one group of about 16 students that strippers can earn as much as $250,000 a year and that a larger bust -- whether natural or augmented -- has a direct relationship to a dancer's salary.
He told the students, "For every two inches up there, it's another $50,000," according to Jason Garcia, 14.[snip]
While administrators said only two parents had formally complained about the presentation, other parents reached Thursday said the references to stripping did not belong at school.
I don't know what is more disturbing. The remarks, or the fact that only two parents complained.
Fried, 64, said he does not think he offended any of the students: "Eighth-grade kids are not dumb," he said. "They are pretty worldly."
His first name HAS GOT to be "Brain".
