The floodgates have opened since one of Obama's former professors gave a negative review of his presidency. Now teachers all over the U.S. are talking about their former students.
But unlike the professor's critique of President Obama, these are not critiques of what former students are doing now, but, instead, revelations of what they were up to as kids. Here's a sample of teacher tell-alls:
Lady Gaga's second grade teacher: "Several times I saw her at lunch, grabbing everybody's hamburger. She would then put all the burgers into a big pile and try to make a meat dress out of them."
Madonna's Kindergarten teacher: "She couldn't seem to keep her clothes on."
High school teacher of biblical scholar Moses: "He didn't write in a notebook like all the other kids. He wrote on stone tablets. And he never cut his hair."
Third grade teacher of Herman Cain (an early candidate for the Republican presidential nomination): "Nice dresser even then. And he was always treating the class to pizza."
Pop singer Pink's fourth grade art teacher: "She refused to share the pink crayons."
Agatha Christie's high school teacher: "One day when a classmate lost a pencil, Agatha grabbed a magnifying glass and insisted on launching an investigation. Talk about overkill!"
Long-term governess of Queen Elizabeth II: "As soon as she learned to walk, she never took a step without carrying a purse!"
First grade teacher of NY's Mayor Bloomberg: "At lunchtime, instead of eating, pint-size Mike would lecture his classmates about how many calories they were consuming. Oy Vey!"
Superman's ninth grade teacher: "On field trips to NYC, he was always trying to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Then his X-ray vision got him charged with stalking. A nice enough young man, but due to his cape, tights, and boots, he just couldn't fit in with the other kids."
Seventh grade teacher of Mary Richards (of Mary Tyler Moore fame): "She had spunk. I told her Mary, you're gonna make it after all."
Who says there's nothing worse than a tattletale? As the teachers keep on blabbing, we'll keep on reporting.
