Chicago Mayor, Richard Daley commented on the firing of Morty Finjaro from the Forest Glen Public school, saying; “this guy is sick and there is no place for that type of twisted thinking in our schools”.
It seems ‘work-shop’ teacher Morty Finjaro brought in a box of old dolls and told his grade nine class to ‘rip ’em apart and build something cool’, below is an example of what student Jerry Fumme brought home to the horror of his parents!
Mr.Finjaro is suspended without pay, pending a school board hearing on June 30, 2009. We were able to contact him via phone and when asked why he gave his student such an inappropriate project, he replied, “The world is a sick and scary place, better the kids learn it here in school than out on the streets.”
Update: As this is posted under ‘mostly true news” (in this case it should probably be categorized as ‘mostly fake news’) I would like to credit Karen Booker for this cool original piece of controversial art and the photo itself. And if you want to own your very own dismembered doll hooktastic item you can buy yourself one here.
