Take the case of the US law students getting their, errr, knickers in a twist over an advert for underwear, shot on their campus:
In an e-mail to students, faculty and staff, dean Michael Gerber wrote: 'We are as shocked and mortified as you must be by these photographs.Oh, dean, if only you had ready access to people who could draft watertight contracts and stuff.
'When the school gave its permission to do the shoot, the school was assured that the photos would be in good taste. They are not.'
What do they call those people again?
Brooklyn Law was paid an undisclosed fee by Diesel -- which had hired an ad company for the shoot -- for use of the library during spring break last March, a school spokeswoman said. The school previously has done such deals with TV and movie productions.And it's not just the staff - it seems some of the budding briefs aren't too happy about seeing pictures of briefs:
"Our understanding was that they were going to be doing a shoot for jeans, not intimates," the spokeswoman said.
First-year student Jordan Hersch, 22, told the New York Post: 'I thought the ad was disgusting, for a law institution to have people in their underwear where we study and work is unbecoming of a law institution.'Yup, because when you graduate, your fees will be ensuring you leave people with at least the shirts on their backs...
One female student told the New York Post : 'It's gross. I work on those computers every day.'Sweetie, if your office is anything like the ones I've worked in, that won't be the worst thing those keyboards and monitors have been subjected to. Not by a long chalk!
