I had to laugh

After my talk with the school about pajama pants and being told that all schools have rules against "distracting" outfits, I read this about the high school in the next town over. I don't think it will actually happen, but there is no way that letting kids wear pajama pants in class, even the brightest yellow Spongebob pants, could ever be as distracting as this.

CLINTON, Iowa — Now he's opened his first chicken restaurant in Iowa, rapper Flavor Flav would like to earn his high school diploma in the state and record his efforts for a new reality TV show.

Flav, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., grew up in Freeport, N.Y. He says he dropped out of school in 10th grade.

He opened Flav's Fried Chicken in Clinton, Iowa last month – his only connection to the Mississippi River town.

Last week the 51-year-old pitched his idea for "Flavor Flav Goes Back to High School" to the local school superintendent and a school board member. He says he'll approach the full board in a couple of weeks.

Flav was in '80s hip-hop group Public Enemy and has since found new fame on reality shows.
