Also, is the capital of Kentucky called Louieville, or Louisville?

Excellent.

After more than thirty years in the classroom, I have a plethora of middle school jokes.

Every year my eighth graders were asked by their U.S. History teacher to pick a U.S. president and write "president report". The students would enter my science class talking about which president they would choose. I always suggested my favorite president, Benjamin Franklin, who before becoming president, invented the lightning rod, bifocals, and the Franklin stove, was a printer and a publisher, founded post offices and libraries, and studied electricity and ocean currents. And, after all, he is famously pictured on the one-hundred dollar bill.

Every year a few students would take me seriously, some middle school kids can be overly trusting of teachers and can be very gullible. After a few years of doing this the history teacher actually came down to my science classroom one day and scolded me in front of my students.

I deserved it.

Proud to say, yes I have.

Wait a minute?

No I haven't.

Wait?

Huh?

That's why I put resign in scare quotes. He was allowed to resign to save face, but that doesn't hide the fact that he was effectively fired.

Can we delete this thread?

He is a big name college basketball coach. I know of ZERO who have not mistreated officials in the past.
