Breaking Bad Gets Real (Stupid) — Chemistry Teacher Arrested for Meth Production
Stereotype-breaking characters like the meth-dealing high school teacher, Walter White, only really surprise people once.
In 1982, with the release of ‘E.T.’ we learned that all aliens are friendly and capable of human emotions. Then, in 1999, ‘She’s All That’ taught us that every nerdy, socially maladjusted artsy girl is just a few eyebrow plucks away from being Wonder Woman. Most importantly, perhaps, once ‘Breaking Bad‘ began it’s first season in 2008, every Chemistry teacher is most likely producing meth in a secret lab somewhere in the basement of a chicken restaurant.
At this point, if you happen to be a teacher who is making drugs, your cover is blown. Stop the…meth presses? We don’t know.
Unfortunately, no one told that to William Duncan, a Middle School chemistry teacher in East Texas who was arrested for manufacturing and delivering methamphetamine last week. Though reports indicate that he did not sell the drugs to students, he did sell from inside of the school, which Walter White would never, ever do. Jesse might have, but only in season one.
Moving forward, let’s please remember that there’s already been one Tyler Durden.
