About Joanne


  1. Oh, the humanity!

  2. Probably a boy named “Sue” goes to the school.

  3. Ha! Our local children’s hostpital is the IWK, short for the Isaak Walton…wait for it…Killam Hospital.

  4. At least it’s named for a person rather than something that sounds more like an herbal tea or a day spa, which seem to be the more common school names these days. See http://www.manhattan-institute.org/html/cr_51.htm

  5. Good point Jay. Interesting history on the school website about Mrs. Kidd as well. One alternative (without saying it’s needed) might be “Pansy Ingle Kidd Middle School”.

  6. there was a “special needs” school in MA called the Dummer Academy. they couldn’t even get the name right;)

  7. Sounds like the setting for Monty Python’s “Upper Class Twit of the Year” competition.
