Evil right-wing conservative that I am, I thought I'd better open with a shot at the government school system.
Okay, it's actually more of a test of YOUR mindset. What'd you think when you read the headline?
If you thought: "That #@$% School Board must be at it again!" then you're probably a disgruntled taxpayer.

Or, you live in your parents' basement in a makeshift living room wallpapered with Star Wars posters, furnished with milk cartons, hiding your bong behind the sofa-bed. In which case, again, I'd bet you're drawing a check from the school system.
