Curtis Got Slapped: Industrial Grade Crazy or Clever Publicity Stunt?
Recommendation from Ace: If You're Not Reading This "Funky Mess" , You Just Don't Love Life

Here's a synopsis from The Pitch.

If you live in Kansas City and you haven't heard that Curtis Got Slapped!, you got another thing coming -- that is, when Lisa Henry Bowen finds you. A teacher allegedly slapped Lisa Henry Bowen's son, Curtis, in class at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School, according to Bowen's gigantic 40-page letter that Bowen CC'd to President Obama, Vice President Biden, three senators, and more than 20 other officials.

She seems a bit upset by this alleged incident but is willing to let bygones be bygones if only the Powers-That-Be would concede to some of her reasonable requests. Such as:

Curtis shall receive, among many other things: $13,500 worth of Wal-Mart gift cards, a free college education, two trips to Disney World, nine years of private tennis lessons on the Plaza, season tickets to the opera, theater, and ballet, almost a decade's worth of psychological counseling by "the best black child psychologist in the country," a whole orchestra's worth of new musical instruments, a three-week trip to Africa at a five-star hotel, and a personal audience with President Obama.

That's just a snapshot. Remember, it goes on for 40 pages. (Nicely formatted, I must admit, with lots of pics of Curtis)

It's pretty over-the-top which is why I'm asking if it might be a spoof or publicity stunt, but apparently Curtis' mom has had some similar issues in the past, also laid out on the "Pitch" site. Either way it's entertaining and "Something Awful" has the entire 40 page diatribe on their site. Read it before it gets vanished.
