August 26, to be exact. (And yes, that’s him.)

That’s the day WOW (Writing on the Wall) favorite and wall-of-famer John Freshwater will get to appeal his dismissal from his 8th grade science teaching gig at Mount Vernon Jr. High School.

Well, this should be good and you know, the Google alert will be pegged on this cat. We’ve seen it this far, may as well, right? Oh yeah, and for the haters, enjoy this snippet from the story:

Freshwater remains on the payroll for now.

Yeah, I thought that would get you bent. Stay tuned.
