As a teacher of 7th grade students this is quite funny. I bet the detention was for disruption rather then the comment itself. I have heard way worse then this and it is a simple and immediate reprimand that takes care of it.
I have also said things by accident that have been taken out of context by the students and it is hard not to laugh. Example: We are writing Social Problems papers and instead of telling the kids to come back with 3-5 Social Problems on Monday I told them to come back with 3-5 STDs on Monday. We all had a good laugh.
"Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you."
I've seen a referral similar to that through an email. Someone said, "Can I get a bigger one?" Needless to say a student with quick thinking ability responded appropriate to the comment but not appropriate in a school setting.
Yeah, don't think he heard on the Dan Patrick Show (or South Park, if that's what the article is suggesting). "That's what she said" has been around for a while, made famous by Wayne's World in the 90's and more recently brought back by Michael Scott in "The Office".
