Default This Article Is Hilarious

This article is hilarious: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...uit/382604001/

I must say I have no stake in the debate, as I enjoy reading Robert Frost as much as poetry “focused on lesbians, illicit sexual relationships, incest and frequent swearing."

I was excited to read that the poetry professor allegedly “exposed her breasts while showing the class a back-shoulder tattoo.”

This is microcosmic.
Btw, not nearly enough detail is provided in the story about the inadvertent exposure of the prof's breast while displaying a tattoo. (I'll be sorry I said that). I blame USA Today's shallow reporting.

It's fence-mending time.

Do we know that it was inadvertent?

John: "Do we know that it was inadvertent?"

No, I guess not... but I deduced it based on this:

Kikkert also alleged that the professor exposed her breasts while showing the class a back-shoulder tattoo.

I suppose it could have been intentional to expose her breast, but not intended to show it -- her back was turned to show her back-shoulder tattoo.

We must get to the bottom of this.

Linked page all gone away now, or so it seems.

Where was the governor when this was happening? If breasts were exposed, I blame Scott Walker. If a tattooed woman was teaching while flaunting her breasts, I blame the governor. (In Scott's defense, I assume the woman belongs to a union - otherwise he would have acted by now.)

Let's charitably imagine that the tatoo read "Anna Magnani has my back."
