The sign in question.   (Twitter)

(Newser) – One of the striking Chicago teachers infused a bit of hilarity into the situation with his protest sign—"Rahm Emanuel likes Nickelback"—which went viral Monday, and actually prompted Emanuel to officially deny liking the much-maligned band in question. RedEye asked the mayor's spokesperson if, in fact, Emanuel likes Nickelback, and got this simple response via email: "No." The 10th-grade math teacher behind the brilliant sign, Mike Konkoleski, has a new sign accusing Emanuel of liking similarly mocked band Creed.

Ah yes the burning issues of the day....never mind pay, hours, working conditions, class size, student to teacher ratio....it's all about Nickleback. Someone (else) somewhere is laughing their keister off.
