The second grade's "Buy me nice things and I'll have sex with you" performance just finished and I found out from several sources who the idiot was who selected that song. (My Humps)
I was gonna go light on them, because I assumed it was a Thai teacher who chose the music, and they likely just knew the music and thought it was cool, with no regard for the meaning of the lyrics. Excusable if you ask me.
I was wrong, it was not a Thai teacher. It was one of our English Program teachers who should know the feeling behind this song. I'll not mention his/her name but if you're close enough to this school you will certainly put two and two together. Careful or you'll be booking the next red eye on Cebu Air.
I do often foray into the grey area, but as a science teacher it is perfectly on the up and up. We talk anatomy, reproduction, etc. but nothing other than educationally. And I know when to stop the giggling students and make sure they are concentrating on the lesson and not giggling off into funny words and things they saw on tv.
But to spend several weeks preparing and practicing with your students, a performance to the song "My Humps", is not sending a good message to anyone.
Granted, the little dance the 7 year olds did was cute, but when the school loud speakers are blasting "Mix your milk with my cocoa puff" and "Whatcha gonna do with all that ass, inside those jeans" and "all that breast inside that shirt"...and the response is "I'm gonna make you scream" and "make you work"...i hope you'd agree with me that it's not for 7 year olds. Apparently one qualified English teacher here at my school disagrees with me.
Whatever. Rant complete.
