Brickbat: One to Go


The West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, sheriff's office has charged Chanel Lemelle with cruelty to a juvenile. Witnesses say Lemelle, a first-grade teacher, kicked and slapped a student at school. She is also accused of taking food off the boy's plate at lunch, telling him he "only needed one taco."

  1. By the looks of the teacher in the link, she’s the one who needs less tacos. Yichhhhh.


    Eric Holder’s “single failure”: No new gun legislation…..-laws.html


    1. In a just world, Holder would be getting fitted for striped pajamas right now.

      In other government scandal news, the Interior Dept finally sold Teapot Dome for the second time last month.

    2. The all-caps, the multiple punctuation marks, the “smooches”: Dunphy or Dunphy-parody?

      1. Dunphy-parody.

    3. I didn’t realize Holder was a member of Congress.

  3. Can you charge Juvenile offenders with “Cruelty to a juvenile”? Because if so, you’d have to lock up most of the student body. I’m not excusing said instructor, I’m just laughing at the name of the law.

  4. “Witnesses told the deputy that Lemelle often brought an empty plate to lunch and filled it with food from her students.”


    1. I was going to note that as well, after posting this bit (for context) from her lawyer: “She’s very sad that this is going on. She loves teaching, loves her students and would never do anything to hurt any of her children.”

      Doubletalk at its finest.

    2. I would be satisfied knowing that she could spend the rest of her life waiting tables. Unfortunately she will probably end up being allowed to teach again.

  5. Is Lemelle a graduate of Gunny Hartman’s Teachers’ College?

    1. “Is Lemelle a graduate of Gunny Hartman’s Teachers’ College?”


      Obligatory donut scene:

      1. Are you quitting on me? Well, are you? Then quit, you slimy fucking walrus-looking piece of shit! Get the fuck off of my obstacle! Get the fuck down off of my obstacle! NOW! MOVE IT! Or I’m going to rip your balls off, so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world! I will motivate you, IF IT SHORT-DICKS EVERY CANNIBAL ON THE CONGO!

  6. “only needed one taco.”

    Truly a parable for the modern age.

  7. Most men crave a variety of tacos, if ya know what I’m sayin’, and I think you do.

    +1 “hot sauce”

      1. Rosie O’Donnell and I see what you did there.

  8. Mike-Mike-Mike, guess what day it is? Wednesday is always taco day here,
    poor kid, if it had only been Friday fish sticks day she might not have been so hungry. She was arrested on a Thursday. Witnesses let this transpire for how long? I think they should be arrested also.

  9. my best friend’s sister makes $61 hourly on the computer . She has been without a job for 8 months but last month her income was $15147 just working on the computer for a few hours. this page…………..
