Back in the 1960’s there was a gym teacher at Robert E. Lee High School in Jacksonville, FL, who, it is reported, harassed with great enthusiasm the male students that listened to rock and roll music and wore their hair a bit too long for his liking. Several of this student body demographic did what any rebellious high schoolers might do in return, they created a series of running jokes to lampoon Skinner. This, in and of itself, is not unusual.
After Skinner retired from teaching he became a real estate agent (go figure) and the owner of a couple of bars in the Jacksonville area.
After the students graduated (though I can't verify that they all did), they went on to form southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.
