The owner of the Nomen Global Language Center, whose motto is “English Will Take You Higher,” thought the term had something to do with gay sex. That was to/two/too much for him.

It isn’t known if the owner had embraced his school motto a tad literally, but after firing the teacher, he immediately canceled his milk delivery.
