Joseph Corlett is 56 years old. And Joseph Corlett attends Oakland University in Rochester, Mich. Well, he did attend that esteemed academy. Seems as if the university elders and others just didn't get an essay he wrote for "Advanced Critical Writing" class.
The assignment, per Mr. Corlett: Write creatively about any topic in a day book.
The result: A journal entry titled "Hot for Teacher," based on the Van Halen song.
Some of the words:
"She walks in, and I say to myself, ‘Drop, mother (expletive), drop.' Christ, I'll never learn a thing. Tall, blond, stacked, skirt, heels, fingernails, smart, articulate, smile. I'm toast, but I stay," wrote Corlett. ...
Corlett called the teacher "my Ginger," the character from "Gilligan's Island," in the notebook and also wrote about how tough it is to be a guy, that the male mind is clogged by sex from age 13 to 30, and also about some of his attractive teachers at Oakland Community College, where he received his associate's degree.
Anyway, Corlett's lawyered up and now stands as a totem for erotic fan-fic aficionados worldwide. He's even got his wife on his side.
Corlett has been married for 30 years to his wife Lynn. He said he read the passage to her, and she "wasn't offended at all."
"I'm not insensitive to what women go through in the workplace. My own wife has suffered those kinds of things," he said.
