Connecticut School Teacher in Hot Water Over ‘Wet Willy’ Prank

What in the ever lovin’ hell? As if parents don’t have enough to deal with when the kids head off to school.

Makes no difference that I’m childless. I still went to school, and have some harrowing stories from my time there. Most of it is the usual stuff, though, I did have another kid try to strangle me once. Well, he thought he was giving me a rope burn, but it turned out a tad worse than that. So I guess the supposedly funny “wet willy” would be no big deal, but it’s still wrong, at least according to one local school district.

The New Haven Register is reporting that a teacher in New Haven has been placed on leave after an incident involving the so-called “wet willy” prank. The teacher in question is accused of encouraging students to wet their finger and stick it in the ear of a girl who had put her head down on the desk.

According to, the unnamed fourth-grade teacher at Wexler-Grant School was placed on leave immediately after the alleged incident last week.

City spokesman Laurence Grotheer told the New Haven Register:

School administrators and District officials are investigating the matter in collaboration with DCF and will take appropriate action — based upon their findings — at the conclusion of that investigation

My gut instinct tells me that this teacher made an off-hand comment that certainly was a major misstep. But sort of like the kid that didn’t think he’d really choke me, actions have consequences.
