Politically incorrect, insensitive, nasty teacher humor below, if that will upset you don’t continue reading and if you are offended please don’t bother to tell me because I will be offended if you do.
Brian S was a well-meaning, pleasant but not too intelligent child. He worked very hard and because of that was a reasonable success in school and probably has done okay with his life. And while 40 years ago he was managing to survive elementary school, I doubt if he went to or needed to go to college unlike the modern theory that all students apparently need and “should go” to college. Brian forever cemented himself into my memory and the local school lore by often signing his work in 5th grade, “Brain” instead of Brian. I would guess that today he would be identified as L.D., E.D, M.D., B.D, O.D., C.D. DVD or some equally eponymous politically correct acronym but back them between ourselves we just called him D.D. for Damn Dumb.
