Game of Thrones T-Shirt on His Kid Gets Professor Suspended, Sanity Questioned


With the shirts I wear on a regular basis – and would let my kid wear if I had one – maybe I should never be a college professor. Bergen Community College in New Jersey put Professor Francis Schmidt on leave pending a psychiatric evaluation when he posted the above photo of his daughter on Google+, and an executive director of the college who got an email notification that the image was posted took it as a threat.

How so?

Miller claimed that he believed the “fire” described in Daenerys’ quote “could be a kind of proxy for ‘AK-47s.'”

Now, while I might question the parenting skills of somebody who lets a kid that young watch Game of Thrones, I have to say it’s pretty obvious who the insane ones are in this instance. But whaddaya gonna do, it’s Jersey. Maybe they were just horrified the girl wasn’t in the state’s national uniform of an Ed Hardy shirt.
