At the end of August, I posted this as "Friday Funny 51:"
Classes start on Monday. Yay. The College of Visual Arts, my alma mater and one of the schools where I teach, publishes a newsletter twice a year highlighting accomplishments of alumni, faculty, and staff. Here’s a little part of the current newsletter that mentions the CVA Triathlon Club:On that same page is this photo (you saw this photo on my blog about a month ago):First of all, of course the photo is “by Steve Stenzel” - did that need to be printed in the caption? Look at my arms coming out towards the camera as if I were holding it. Secondly, I’m pretty sure that no faculty or alumni have appeared topless in the newsletter, so consider me the first.
Big surprise there. ;) At least you can’t see my nip-nips.
Fast-forward to yesterday: I had back-to-back-to-back meetings at CVA to gear up for the new semester. At the last meeting, we were all given the newest CVA newsletter, and I had made another appearance. This time, I had my shirt on:
But then about 20 minutes later, in front of EVERY single FACULTY and STAFF member at the college, the President of CVA showed that topless image of me nice and big for all to see as part of her PowerPoint.
Some people cheered as she talked about the CVA Triathlon Club. I just leaned over to one of the History Professors next to me and said, "OK, I bet THAT'S the first time a faculty member has been seen TOPLESS in a school-sanctioned presentation!" The History Prof had to hold back from laughing too hard.....
