Grow A Pair ... And Some Hair

A retired schoolteacher claimed he was a victim of disability discrimination because he is bald.

Thankfully the judge ruled in favour of obviousness : baldness is "not an impairment."

... of course, baldness could be considered an impairment if the schoolteacher was, say, trying to do his best imitation of a Catholic clergyman by putting the pedophile moves on one of his students who then tells him he isn't good-looking enough, even with the prospect of winning a lawsuit worth millions of dollars 20 or 30 years down the road. Besides this exception, however, the judge's ruling has to be considered a blow for the sanity of hairy people everywhere.
