3 December 2009 Mr. Brown’s Death Appears to Have Been a New Mediacide
Mr. Brown is the Fort Zumwalt School District’s (MO) lion of substitute teaching, only he’s gentle as a sea turtle, and older than the Nightly News. You have to speak loudly at his hearing aid, and laugh loudly at his jokes, and listen closely to his stories, which he recites very slowly, softly, smiling, with a dentured lisp and Rated G inuendo.
On Tuesday I saw on Twitter that Mr. Brown was dead, and so I killed him again on my Facebook status. But the nineteenth comment on my status resurrected Mr. Brown, our favorite substitute teacher:
It was another Mr. Brown who was also a teacher that died yesterday. Fort Zumwalt’s Mr. Brown is still kicking! :)
