My teachers used to send those home. They were called progress reports.

Talk about bad judgement
2003-03-08 11:58:37 AM  
Figures a Christian cannot take a joke.

"It says "Choo Choo Choose me," and there's a picture of a train!"
2003-03-08 11:59:41 AM  
"Well can you explain the tatoo on your chest that says "die bart die!"

"No no, thats german for "the bart the"
2003-03-08 12:00:03 PM  
Wow! He said what we're all thinking!
2003-03-08 12:00:28 PM  
Oh give me a farking break. Some people need to be beaten in the head with baseball bats.

And UberPimp, it seems now that the onyl people who have any sort of sense of humor are the conservatives, who are made up mostly of christians. I'd say the boy's one of those bed wetter types.

i hated when i got one of those
2003-03-08 12:04:56 PM  
shoulda told the kid he was going to die in 7 days after reading it.
2003-03-08 12:05:37 PM  
''It's not right to do something like that to a student. You can't even make a joke about something like that.''

I laughed. Is the train to hell boarding?
2003-03-08 12:05:58 PM  
Okay, this kid is 17 years old, it would be a big deal if the kid was, say, 8 or something. This kid is a giant sissy. He obviously set this teacher up for a -major- fall.
2003-03-08 12:07:04 PM  
"During class, the report stated, the teacher used an eraser to write the word ''Die'' on the chalkboard while looking at the boy, then smiled.

Police said the incident remains under investigation. Jones, 44, was placed on administrative leave. He wouldn't comment.

''A teacher is in a position of authority,'' said Kim Sue Lia Perkes, a spokeswoman for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix. ''It's not right to do something like that to a student. You can't even make a joke about something like that.'' "
This teacher took the joke way too far, it was unprofessional and uncalled for. The Diocese took the correct action. Read the article folks, educate yourself, then post. I doubt any parent, either atheist, christian or whatever, would find having their child threatened very funny, even in jest.
2003-03-08 12:08:09 PM  
The kids obviously didn't read the whole Valentine, which said..."You will die...if you don't pass this on to seven friends and tell them to pass it on to seven friends...don't break the chain and LIVE"
2003-03-08 12:08:39 PM  
Oh man! If only 3/4 of the Fark commenters here were Catholic! We'd all be getting the "Die" eye.
2003-03-08 12:09:01 PM  
That really isn't funny. Although Dolfin really is.
2003-03-08 12:09:20 PM  
He was just upset because the teacher molested the other boys, but didn't molest him.

2003-03-08 12:15:12 PM  
Actually, Sneech, he'd be a SORE WINNER if he got molested.
2003-03-08 12:15:38 PM  
At least he didn't try to bugger him. I think that shows some improvement on the Catholic Church's part. C'mon people, can't you see there trying?

2003-03-08 12:16:20 PM  

I read that part. It's still funny.
2003-03-08 12:16:50 PM  
uhhhh they're is what I meant. yeah
2003-03-08 12:18:40 PM  
What a more eloquent way of saying YOU FAIL!

shoulda just rubberstamped a big, fat red F
2003-03-08 12:20:07 PM  
i bet that boy was a jackass...

My only hope is that the freaked out kid remembers that revenge is a dish best served cold.

It might be hard for a 17 y.o. to accomplish the devious response this bastard teacher deserves. Hopefully, he will recognize the need to plan his actions and, within the bounds of the law of course, screw this teacher over but good.
2003-03-08 12:25:49 PM  
I hope ya flip some guy the bird
He cuts you off and you're forced to swerve
In front of the Beatles' tour bus
A Bookmobile and a Mack truck
Hauling hazardous biological waste
The light turns red you have no brakes
And "Hard Copy" gets it all on tape
So you can see the look on your face

Die Die Die Die Die Die Die
Die Die Die Die Die Die Die

I hope your Pinto begins to spin
Takes out a disabled Vietnam Veteran
Mows down a Nobel Peace Prize Winner
And maybe some orphans having Christmas dinner
Perhaps even the British Royal Family
And the Rabbi that's clutching the bottle-fed puppy
And we can't forget the newlyweds
And those Jerry's Kids are as good as dead

I hope this helps to emphasize
I hope this helps to clarify
I hope you die

I hope your cellmate thinks he's God
But C.N.N. refer to him as "Bowling Ball Bag Bob"
Serving time again for abuse of a corpse
Only this time the victim's a Clydesdale horse
While he masturbates to photos of livestock
He does the "Silence of the Lambs" dance to Christian Rock
Eats feces and quotes from "Deliverance"
And fights with his imaginary playmate Vince

Die Die Die Die Die Die Die
Die Die Die Die Die Die Die

I hope he grins like Jack Nicholson
And forces you to play a game called "Balls On Chin"
And whatever happens next is all a blur
But you remember "fist" can be a verb
And when you finally regain consciousness
You're bound and gagged in a wedding dress
And the prison guard looks the other way
'Cause he's the guy ya flipped the bird the other day

I hope this helps to emphasize
I hope this helps to clarify
I hope you die

I hope you die
2003-03-08 12:29:39 PM  
maybe , since this was a catholic school, " I want you to die" really means " Hope you get to Heaven soon" and is actually a positive comment.
2003-03-08 12:30:35 PM  
Yes but when we die we all go to heaven where there is eternal by wishing for his student to die, isn't this religion teacher actually wishing the student to go to eternal bliss??

I mean, if heaven is so much better than life on Earth, then wishing someone death is actually a positive thing!
2003-03-08 12:30:45 PM  
The teacher is simply setting things up so he can "apoligize" later, in private.
2003-03-08 12:31:36 PM  
haha...Maynardjameskeenan: we thought the same thing at the same time!
2003-03-08 12:33:14 PM  
So, to sum up, in catholic dogma, when spoken by an adult male to a boy:

"I wish you were oiled up and bent over naked on my desk" is OK.

"I wish you would die" is not.

Got it.
2003-03-08 12:33:18 PM  
DaNightTripper: lol.....great minds right???reminds me of the Dennis Miller joke about him being on an airplane with nothing but born again christians that is about to crash into a mountain and Miller being the only one who is upset about it.
2003-03-08 12:33:39 PM  
Crazy ass fundies...
2003-03-08 12:36:27 PM  

heh, a little Bloodhound Gang always sends the right Valentines message.
2003-03-08 12:39:14 PM  
I wouldn't say that conservatives are funny. Just like at Ashcroft.
2003-03-08 12:41:18 PM  
He was probably serious. When I was growing up all the kids that went to the catholic schools were unbearable. I think it's because they have to behave in a repressive home environment, then when they're away from the parents they go apeshiat. If I had to hang around with these kids everyday, I'd be wishing some death myself.
2003-03-08 12:41:28 PM  
Wow, I just cited the Bloodhound Gang in the porno letters music discussion... They're apparently ubiquitous.
2003-03-08 12:47:53 PM  
Remember, the pope said, "no more butt-farking the alter boys". They gotta do something to take up the slack.
2003-03-08 12:49:20 PM  

I think you mean the others were SORE WINNERS.
2003-03-08 12:49:23 PM  
At least he got a valentine. Nobody evens cares enough to want me dead. :(
2003-03-08 12:49:39 PM  
Honestly what kind of joke is that? It's not funny. It's creepy. I'd want him fired too. Who the hell writes "die" to all his students and hands it out to them as jokes? Not anyone with a functional brain.
2003-03-08 12:50:19 PM  
Sadly I would have done this. I thought it was pretty humorous. I should be fired from my position as a student.
2003-03-08 12:50:33 PM  
That's not true Young_Fart. I'm sure lots of people want you dead.
2003-03-08 12:54:52 PM  
As if adolescence wasn't wracked with enough insecurity you have to have your teachers saying they wish you were dead? This teacher would fall under the category of turd burgling ass clown.
2003-03-08 12:59:05 PM  
come to think of it...why the hell was a teacher handing out valentines to 17 yr olds( juniors??/seniors???)at all???i thought they stopped doing that after elementary school
2003-03-08 01:00:09 PM  
2003-03-08 01:08:32 PM  
*sniff* Thanks Mtrans, you have no idea how much that means to me.
2003-03-08 01:13:02 PM  
He should have joked back with the teacher. You know...draw a picture of a stick figure with a knife through its head and blood squirting out and the word "You" in big letters, then leave it on his car. Send him letters like "I know where you live" and "Did you know that a carbon monoxide leak could kill a person in their sleep and it would look like an accident?". Then if he got upset say "Dude...can't you take a joke?"
2003-03-08 01:13:29 PM  
This was probably everyone's favorite everyone hates this kid who didn't get the joke.
2003-03-08 01:13:33 PM  
Of course, had it said "love your cock, love your ass, hope we meet after class" the teacher would have been promoted to head priest.
2003-03-08 01:17:25 PM  
Had the teacher been retarded then everything would have been ok. Or does only work when retarded students make the statement?

Just imagine how this guy's next job interview is going to go: "I decided to seek employment elsewhere after sending notes to my students that said, 'I wish you would die.'"
