A park ranger has been FIRED for dancing at work! Deryl Nelson, who worked for the City of Chattanooga, was let go after an offended lady took video of his sweet moves. This is the greatest injustice in the history of Tennessee except slavery and anything bad that has ever happened to Dolly Parton.
This lady, Melissa Parsons, took action that got a man fired from his job, in this economy, for shaking his booty. Watch the short video news report for the footage of the dancing that so offended Parsons she had to start a campaign against a public servant.
This is ridiculous! He didn’t do anything wrong! He was just being silly and having fun! Any kids who were offended are scary little beast monsters who need to learn how to chill the hell out (as do their parents).
Now if you’re as pissed off as we are (AND WE ARE PISSED OFF!) tweet at the City of Chattanooga. Tell ’em @HappyNiceTimes sent ya, dammit! You can also email Mayor Andy Berke if you like at email@example.com. Let us foment a revolution against uptight lily-livered “Footloose”-type people who would probably be super into the rigid, regimented societies in “The Giver” or “A Handmaid’s Tale” or “Hunger Games” or “Triumph of the Will” whatever. Let Deryl dance! LET DERYL DANCE! We will die on this hill, for Deryl.
UPDATE: A kind Twitter friend let us know that Deryl is still dancing, on Facebook! Check him out!
UPDATE TO UPDATE: And here is Deryl’s last dance for us all, on YouTube. It’s pretty great.
