Dog-cooking, tree-taking school-burner may lose job

BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese headmaster, who tried to buy off colleagues by cooking dog meat for them after secretly selling off trees around the school, ended up setting fire to classrooms when the meal burst into flames, a Chinese newspaper said Friday.
Ten classrooms containing televisions, computers, printers and textbooks burned down, leaving nearly 100 children unable to go to school, the Beijing Youth Daily said.
The headmaster, in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang, sold off a 1,000-tree arboretum surrounding the school on the sly, the newspaper said.
"In order to get the teachers not to tell anyone what he had done, on the afternoon of May 16, headmaster Meng got friends to obtain two dogs, which they proceeded to kill on the school grounds," the report said.
"He then told the teachers they would have dog meat to eat that afternoon," it added.
But the plan went awry when the dog being cooked burst into flames and set fire to the school's main office and then the classrooms.
The local education bureau fined the headmaster 10,000 yuan ($1,252) and suggested he be fired, the newspaper said.

Dang! As un-PC as I am, this guy has me running for the hills.
Grandpap's rule: When you find yourself in a hole, quit digging.
Dog meat's as good as gold in China, apparently. What the hell do they normally feed teachers that Fido chops are a delicacy?
You can't make up stuff like this.
Dog meat's a delicacy everywhere. Just some folks are not aware of that.
He's in a great teacher's union.
He will be lucky if his family does nto ahve to pay for the bullet.
As long as he doesn't teach students to think for themselves.. he can do what he likes!!

Gotta love that guy.
They fire people over the littlest things these days.
Where can I get some fried chihuahua?
Doberman burgers with A-1?
Apparently 2 cooked dogs are sufficent hush money for 1000 missing trees. The part that really bothers me is this:

Okay, the headmaster was cooking the dog in the school's main office. Then it 'burst' into flames? I really hope the dog was dead before it burst.
And how big of a dog was that, because when it burst into flames it burned down a large percentage of the school. What did the headmaster do, give the poor dog a gasoline enema before cooking it?
