Inappropriate for Class?

Perhaps I should not admit it, but I used the picture below in my environmental law class this semester. I showed it after we had had a pretty heavy discussion on the science of climate change, with the thought that it might bring some levity to an otherwise difficult topic. While no one suggested it was inappropriate, I later found myself regretting it. A female professor might get away with it, but I think a male professor could really catch some flack!

Alas, yes, inappropriate for class. And, to get picky about it, style changes aren't related to climate change as much as they are to social change. Also, we have A/C now, which did not exist in the days of bloomers.
