How to get fired in one easy lesson

Ok, it is the Mirror after all. But it is funny. A friend sent me this today:
A university lecturer was sacked when he watched porn after class but accidentally ­broadcast the X-rated film across campus. 
The visiting professor sat back for his online sex show but forgot to unplug his laptop from the projector – unaware he was being filmed after cameras recording his lecture were left on. [...]
Where IT inexperience and porn greed meet, you have a new academic position opening up soon.


  1. I wish I could find the link again, but one of the articles I read on this had a gem of a quote from the University officials regarding the porno prof. I'm paraphrasing here:

    "If he had been a tenured faculty member, then we would have severely warned him about his actions. However, as he was a visiting professor he was terminated immediately."

  2. Maybe he should go to the University of Chicago, which is showing porn as part of its Sex Week (and I presume that the prominence of the U. of C. logo indicates at least tacit university approval--my institution comes down very hard on unauthorized use of its "Visual Identity").

    1. And I'm no prude: I teach some pretty sexualized material in a couple of my classes.

  3. I'd love to sabotage one of the infamous PowerPoint presentations given by our Incompetent Dean of Students in this way.

  4. Seriously, do any of you want to go to this?

    Great Oral Sex: with Tea Time & Sex Chats. An open panel-discussion on going down on men and women, techniques as well as individual differences, and sexual health practices. Yes, expect tea.

    Or this?

    Anal 101. Nervous? Students discuss the logistics and pleasures of anal sex, and answer questions from the audience. Learn, or give your input on, prep, protection, barebacking, etc for men and women.

    How about this?

    Rope-Tying Demonstration. Join members of Risk-Aware Consensual Kink in creating knots, and discussing consent and safety in play. This workshop is for all who are curious. Bring your own rope, if you can!

    Christ on a pogo stick. Is anyone out there really truly interested in being in a room with a bunch of other people while some flake goes down on a plantain? Or sits on it?

    What. The. Fuck.

    1. Nothing ruins sex like making it educational.
