apparently, someone has bigger issues with course evals than I do

UC Davis acting instructor spends four days in jail for making an ill-advised joke about course evaluations. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cringe.

I find it inadvisable to joke about bombs, regardless of audience. My husband muttered the word bomb in an airport once, and I nearly kicked him. Thankfully, I was the only one who heard. Otherwise, he could have been arrested like this poor schmuck.

Yeah, exactly -- I feel guilty about being morbidly amused by this, because of course putting the guy in jail for four days is appalling, but how does anyone with a shred of common sense not know better than to make jokes like that?
