From http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,236201,00.html RICHMOND, Va. A Virginia school district has suspended an art teacher who they say may be setting a bad example for students with his own extracurricular activity butt painting. Stephen Murmer, a self-described "butt-printing artist," was placed on administrative leave Friday by the Chesterfield County school district. Going by the name Stan Murmur, the teacher sells floral and abstract paintings that he calls "anthropometric monotypes" created by plastering his rump and genitals in paint and pressing them against a canvas. His paintings sell online for upwards of $900. "I am certainly proud of the ass painting," Stan Murmur said on a "Unscrewed With Martin Sargent" clip downloaded by FOXNews.com Wednesday on YouTube. "I do have a real job where I do have real clients, and I don't think they'd be too understanding if I was also the guy that painted with my ass." In the clip, Murmur appeared wearing only a black thong and "Groucho" glasses to demonstrate a style of painting he learned in college. "I followed a girlfriend into a painting and printmaking class," he told host Sargent in the clip. "We had an assignment where we had to create an organic stamping object, bring it in as a print and display it to the class. I chose my ass as that object." Murmer is known as a popular, joke-cracking art teacher at Monacan High School in Virginia. Chesterfield County schools spokeswoman Debra Marlow says school system regulations state that teachers must set an example for students through their personal conduct. The American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia says the suspension goes against Murmer's First Amendment rights. FOXNews.com's Sara Bonisteel and The Associated Press contributed to this report. That's...asinine? I'm really not sure how to feel about this.
