High School Students Were Shown ‘Human Centipede 2’ In Class And No One Knows Why

The world’s fascination with The Human Centipede has thankfully come and gone, but Tom Six’s gross-out trilogy has left behind (like where poop comes from) a legacy of cat toys and 500-person prison centipedes. It’s still all the rage in one part of the world, though: a classroom in Jackson, Tennessee, where The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) (the Wikipedia for which includes the words “…shoves the funnel into his rectum”) was screened for students. Kids today, what with their diet sodas and human centipedes.

Superintendent Verna Ruffin confirmed to the Jackson Sun that students had viewed Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) after a parent called the paper to report the incident. Ruffin would not say why the students had seen the movie, or whether the teacher in that classroom had been suspended or otherwise disciplined.

Superintendent Ruffin sent a letter to the parents of Jackson Central-Merry High School’s students, writing, “I understand that on Wednesday, April 20, 2016, your student may have inadvertently viewed inappropriate content in a JCM classroom. This occurrence is inconsistent with our Mission and Vision at Jackson Central Merry.” Judging by the date the screening happened, I’m guessing the teacher was stoned, and meant to show his or her students Cannibal Holocaust instead. Honest mistake. At least it was educational:
