    The inside of the bus is all set up for people to dance and party.

    The coolest characters lead a conventional life by day and a crazy one by night. Take Miss Davis in "Varsity Blues," who boldly supplemented her paltry teacher's wages by baring her body each evening, flying in the face of conventional views of propriety, whatever the cost. Take also, Batman. Educating by day, entertaining your face off by night. Locally we have the Teacher With the Bus.

    Intrepid German entrepreneur, Jens-Peter Jungclaussen, also known as the TWTB, facilitates learning on the go for students young and old during daylight in two tricked out, veggie oil-powered school buses.

    But the trick of the party is what the TWTB does with the bus when the sun sets. The green powered hippie mobile doubles as radly rent-able party buses and the class chameleon has been fed.

    The buses' interiors're done up Euro-retro style in bright orange and white, with vinyl bench seating for 35 to 40, a sizable linoleum dance floor, and a thumping soundsystem that will blast tunes from your iPod, CDs, or cassettes (sucks to be you, mini-disc!).

    The bus isn't cheap though. It cost $650 minimum for four hours plus $155 an hour for more time. But there are discounts for non-profit groups and charities.

    Supplying booze and determining the TWTB's course is up to  you. Jens-Peter will gladly take you bar hopping, but he thinks you might have more fun throwing a series of on-board dance parties at scenic spots like Twin Peaks, the Headlands, or ALCATRAZ! OK, sorry, no Alcatraz.

    For an additional fee, TWTB will come stocked with a DJ spinning a genre of your choice and outdoor speakers for bus-adjacent raving.

    Jens-Peter will tolerate all manner of shenanigans, stipulating only that "I don't like the naked butts out of the window", a rule you'd abide by during the day, but question at night -- depending on the light of your full moon.
