Elementary School Principals always try to find creative ways to encourage their students to read more.  This, by far, is the strangest incentive I've ever seen.

 

In Dorchester, Massachusetts, Justin Vernon, principal of the Roger Clapp Elementary School, made a bet with students that they couldn't read a total of 10,000 books during the school year.

 

The kids read 13,000 books.

 

Principal Vernon had to pay up for his end of the bargain -- he had to dress as Lady Gaga and milk a cow!

 

The students, of course, went nuts.

 

Poor guy,  although it could be worse. He could have dressed as a cow and milked Lady GaGa.
