School Cafeteria Worker Quits Over Giant Gunns

A school cafeteria worker has resigned her close to $6k a year part-time job because she used to be a pr0n star.
When Tuck's past was revealed in November some parents in the school district, as well as the board of education president, wanted her fired, but district officials were advised by their lawyers and those from the New Jersey School Board Association they had no legal grounds to terminate the 32-year-old from her $5,772-a-year part-time job.
My question, if someone who looks like the woman pictured above comes in looking for a job, how do you NOT know that she was a pr0n star? I mean, seriously, have you ever seen a school cafeteria lunch lady with gunns like that?

I'm willing to bet that the boys of that school are very sad following her resignation. I also don't think she should have lost her job just because she took it in the ass on camera a couple of times. I've worked for a school district before, and believe me, there are plenty of school employees doing that for free on a regular basis. And some even with consenting adults.

My favorite quote of the whole article, though, is this one.
At the time, Vineland School District Superintendent Charles Ottinger released a statement saying, "It's one thing if it's an illegal activity, because that would come up in the check. There is no way for us to know if a person is involved in these types of activities."


"If this is about morality, our president-elect has admitted to doing crack, and he's our president. Does that make him a bad person?" Tuck said in November, referring to one of Barack Obama's books, in which he admits trying cocaine. "Bill Clinton smoked pot. Does that make him a bad person?" (emphasis mine)

A Word Of Warning

If your daughter tells you that the digital camera she received for Christmas the year before is broken and asks you to fix it, here is something you should watch out for. When you remove the case, you'll probably notice a large piece of electrical tape across one end of the electronics. That is probably there for a reason, but if you're like me you rip it off without investigating why so you can get to the screws underneath.

When you rip off that seemingly harmless piece of black electrical tape, you will unknowingly be exposing the leads on a very large capacitor. For those of you who don't know what a capacitor is, it's a small, harmless looking piece of electronics that functions somewhat like a batter. It stores an electrical charge and then dispenses that electrical charge when triggered. Like, say, when your finger lays across both leads, which is immediately followed by "HOLY MOTHER OF G-D" and you throwing said digital camera across your office.

At least that's what I would imagine would happen, if I were to do something like that. Which I did, of course. I then decided it would be a good idea to put the electrical tape back in place. Only when I was in the process of sticking it back down, the leads poked through the tape, making contact with my finger, which then closed the circuit a second time and "SHIIIIIIIT". Yeah, I shocked myself twice in about 90 seconds.

Lesson learned. Next time we throw the damn thing away and buy another cheap digital camera like we're going to do this time. Only there won't be nearly as much yelling and cussing involved.
