Great video for a character education unit, stimulating thinking and discussions around stereo-typing, preconceptions and assumptions. It's long (7:00) but I think worth it.

This is the WKRP in Cincinnati video Jim Knight refers to on p. 178-179 of High Impact Instruction. The DJ, Venus Flytrap has a conversation with Arnold. He convinces Arnold to stay in school by betting him he can teach him "the basics of the atom."
