Here's something to add to your list of things not to do:

No. 1 Strip naked in front of the students in the college course you're teaching.

No. 2 After you're arrested, answer the front door of your apartment to talk to the local news.

A dejected Raymond Devaughn Taylor, 57, briefly spoke with a reporter, telling him that the matter was, "between him and the class." The day before, his Georgia business college students were shocked and confused when he undressed himself during their class at Kennesaw State University. Taylor, the so-called "naked professor" was arrested and charged with public indecency. He was released from jail on $5,000 bond. His mugshot is something special, just one notch down from Gary Busey's.

What must the students have been thinking? How did they react to such a thing? Were they traumatized? Not the ones that WSB-TV found to interview on campus. They thought it was apparently thought it was hilarious.

"I think it's crazy, I've never heard about it," said a female student while laughing hysterically.

"I think it's crazy, that's extremely absurd, wow, wow," said a shocked male student.

"I think he was on drugs, definitely, or something crazy," said another male student, while grinning ear to ear.

Public indecency or indecent exposure is the crime of purposefully displaying one's genitals in public, causing others to be alarmed or offended.

The naked professor has been "terminated effective immediately," said Frances Harrison, a spokeswoman for the university, who issued a statement on the arrest, ABC reports. "He will not return to his part-time teaching post, nor have access to the campus," Harrison said.
