There's poor taste, and there's...


Letourneau hosts `Hot for Teacher' night at bar

A teacher who became notorious in the 1990s for having an affair with a sixth-grader is hosting a "Hot for Teacher" night at a Seattle bar — along with the former student, now her husband.

Bar owner Mike Morris says Mary Kay Letourneau (leh-TUR'-noh) has served her sentence and it's OK for the couple to have some fun.

The 47-year-old Letourneau served seven years in prison after pleading guilty in 1997 to raping Vili Fualaau (VEE'-lee foo-ah-LA'-oo), now 26. They met when Fualaau was in second grade and began their affair when he was 12 and she was a 34-year-old married mother of four. They were married in 2005 and have two daughters together.

Morris says Saturday's event at Fuel Sports Eats & Beats will be their third "Hot for Teacher" night. She greets people and he DJs.

Incidentally, what's with the pronounciation guides? Is that so, when you're discussing this with others, you won't say "Hey, remember that skanky pedophile teacher Mary Kay (leh-tur-NO')?" by mistake?

Also, I thought it was just SF, but I guess this proves it: EVERYBODY IS A GODDAM DJ.
