    This makes more sense. I wouldn't let anyone talk me into it but for some reason people feel an obligation to their students. Um, no, you don't have an obligation to do something you don't want to do. They will deal with it and someone else who wants to do it can do it.

    I spend way too much time on my makeup to ruin it with pie!

    My old (elementary) school did something similar where teachers were pied if their classes achieved goals (I forget what kind of goals.) The whole school assembled to watch it.

    I thought this was so disrespectful to teachers. And when that reward gets old, what's next to bribe the students to do things they should already be doing?
