Teacher Lawsuit Strikes Back at Pupils



In this day and age when teachers have been prosecuted for inappropriate behavior, one teacher is apparently striking back at students. A math teacher in Indiana, Daniel Clevenger, is reportedly suing a group of students who made a film of an evil teddy bear. The four boys, all aged 16, made 'The Teddy Bear Master' a film in which a teddy bear was trying to harass and kill a teacher named Mr. Clevenger. The toys' leader, The Teddy Bear Master, orders a Sopranos' like hit of the teacher for embarrassing him. In the film, some students fight back and try to save their teacher - but the would be heros are unsuccessful in the 78-minute film. The four Knightstown Intermediate School students have been named as Isaac Imel, Harrison Null, Charlie Ours and Cody Overbay. Their parents are also sued. (If nothing else, what an innovative way to get publicity for a film!)

Glad I subscribe to your blog, LOL, gives me a chance to post first. How could a cutie like this teddy kill someone? Now, a beautiful woman in a teddy may give a heart attack to a man, but I can's imagine this one doing much.

I don't know how you do it, but you often scoop the big media outlets. Good job.

Seems like a great gig... Enraged teacher generates publicity, settles case for a percentage of the movie deal... Scream 6!

I don't know, the larger teddy bear looks a bit threatening. Is he borrowing lindsay lohan's knife and putting it behind the smaller teddy's back?

Yeah, I bet the poor teacher has nightmares... so much time thinking what he is going to do with all the money from the book and movie rights is enough to get to anyone...

I think you will see someday that it was all about the money.

Reminds me of the little bears you customize at those little shops at the mall...

I am a football fan. My bet is that the Bears win this one against the teacher...

Who could possibly be traumatized by a little teddy bear???
