The former chancellor of USF Polytechnic, who was criticized for buying giant slides and Star Wars statues with school money, resigned on Thursday


He was thrown down a Death Star reactor shaft by a disgruntled underling.

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: Eh. The alleged threats/hostile environment sound like a problem. But choosing inapt (but innocuous) art for the workplace, or taking a page from the likes of Google on office perks? That's a mistake under the circumstances but not all that buffoonish. Most companies/schools make similar "unnecessary" expenditures, just on stodgier equivalents.

I was seriously sad when they posted a few years later that the professor that character was based on had passed away.

"Hey, man... did you hear about Logan 5? He failed 3 classes this semester, so now he has to report to Carousel for this afternoon's Renewal Ceremony"

Really, a video cost $140,000? Where can I get in on that scam, er, deal?

Zalan: He actually bought that stuff a few years back, so this is not the firing offense. However the fact that USF Polytechnic is breaking off to form their own school due to the main investor being a state senator who was trying to force the split so he could keep all the money the rest of the USF colleges spent to build that campus the buildings, the student body, hire the teachers, etc and run off with them scot-free.

As it went, we got a less drastic budget cut because we went along with his plan, they get the buildings, the students get to finish their degrees if they are in progress and when that's over, all the teachers fall back to the USF system while Polytechnic tries to maintain accreditation with no students and no teachers. (but they have a cool Darth Vader statue!)

Periods, dude. Use them.
