Socratic Sans Toga: Kansas Professor Under Review for Mooning Judges

Bill Shanahan, a professor at Fort Hays State University, is facing disciplinary measures after he dropped his pants and mooned judges at a debate event out of frustration with scoring of his team. The video below has become a popular item — outside of University administrators who are a bit ticked.

This appears to be a new technique for public appearances after a leading lawyer recently dropped his pants at a speech, click here.

In a comment from Fort Hays provost Larry Gould, the school stated “We’re sure that there’s probably some facts and information that’s just not available. I mean, you see a lot on the video, but we need to make sure everything is revealed before we take any action.”

While I tend to try to support fellow academics, I cannot imagine any fact that would transform this scene or explain the professor’s conduct. As a general rule, keeping one’s pants on during class is a minimal requirement (even though the Socratic technique began with togas).

  1. Diogenes used to roam naked in the streets with a latern in search of an honest man. His ghost is rumored to be fleeing the whitehouse each night (and it doesn’t even go near the dick’s numerous bunkers)!

  2. Prof. Shanahan still provides better “rebuttal” than what I often see here.
