Alice Cooper: Terrorist

Don’t sing Alice Cooper in school, writes The Wine Commonsewer. You’ll be expelled.

School’s out for summer
School’s out forever
School’s been blown to pieces

Here’s Alice singing the “terrorist screed.” I note it starts with a call for choice.

TWC’s kid got in trouble for bringing a plastic replica of a rifle to school, at his teacher’s request, to serve as a prop for a boy playing Daniel Boone in the school play.

Later, in the office retrieving the offending item: Good grief, Ma’am, it’s not like someone just handed you a live grenade with the pin pulled. Handling it gingerly doesn’t make it less likely that a toy rifle is going to explode and take the admin office out with it.

Alice Cooper said he was inspired by:

…..the last three minutes of the last day of school when you’re sitting there and it’s like a slow fuse burning. If we can catch that three minutes in a song, it’s going to be so big.

Burning fuse? Oh, no.

Via Lisa Snell of Education Weak. As Mrs. TWC, she advised that bringing a toy gun to school would go badly.

    Makes me wonder what they think of “Another Brick In The Wall, Part 2” by Pink Floyd. 🙂
