Please sir, don't have a cool yule;Letter;Postscript

WE READ your guide to being cool about boy bands and for the first time ever felt sorry for teachers. Normally they are just the people who give you homework so who cares if they make fools of themselves, but any teacher who tries to be cool by quoting song titles will just be so totally sad. There is nothing that is so cringe making as a teacher who thinks he's young. As this is Christmas time we thought we would offer this advice to teachers who want to seem cool - don't do it.
