Oh man. This is just terrible.

As reported by the New York Post, three New York City schoolteachers were busted for smoking marijuana outside the Beacon Theatre before a recent Allman Brothers Band concert. The Post printed pictures of the culprits, all of whom teach at Manhattan's Urban Assembly Media High School. The punishment for possession, other than public humiliation via the tabloids? "A spokeswoman for the Department of Education said the pothead pedagogues would be tied to the "Whipping Post" by being reassigned pending a department hearing," says the newspaper article. Har har har.

Several questions arise from this unfortunate occurence. First, why did the cops arrest someone at an Allman Brothers concert? The Allman audience is dominated by peace-loving hippie folk, not angry fans waiting to thrash about the mosh pit... Anyway, second - and most importantly - why in the world did those schoolteachers choose to do this outside the venue? Whenever the Allman Bros pull into town for a multi-night residency, it's hippie heaven inside the Beacon Theatre. One whiff of the air inside the venue would probably do the trick.

Man, what are they teaching these kids nowadays?


Some YouTube goodness to brighten the somber mood:


Whipping Post, 3/31/07 at Beacon Theatre. Kudos go to whomever wrote the YouTube description for this video ("Derek dazzles, destroys and deploys doom during tonights encore"). Sounds like you really enjoyed yourself at that show, Mr./Mrs. Writer. Perhaps you were hanging outside with those schoolteachers, too, but made a break for it when the cops showed? Hmmmm?

Sweet Melissa, live (and awesome).
