Butt-print artist no longer welcome at high school

Via The Obscure Store: "Monacan High School art teacher Stephen Murmer was placed on paid administrative leave recently after school administrators learned of an online video in which he's demonstrating how he paints with his buttocks.

"Murmer operates a Web site showcasing paintings he makes with his rear and genitals. The site, on which he goes by the name Stan Murmur, features his work and the video [It looks like he's taken everything down].

"School Board Chairman Marshall W. Trammell Jr. said he has seen a lot of things during his 15 years on the School Board, 'but this is probably the most unique [incident] that I've ever seen.'"
