The University of Maryland was to show the porno titled Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge at its student union last week. BUT, Maryland State Senator and total buzzkill, Andrew Harris (arrrrR-MD), wasn't too keen on the idea of a public university airing porn so he threatened to withhold school funding.
University of Maryland, home to incessant Israel versus Palestine sidewalk chalk wars, riots, and library masturbators, is not one to shy away from controversy. So some administrators, lawyers, ACLU members and students held a "rebel screening" to air pornographic footage and teach all sorts of "Full House" lessons about copulation and the responsibility of caring for Comet.

The fun Gawker versions are here and here
