I couldn't help but remember how the main character in Barking Dogs Never Bite (The Host director Bong Joon-ho's first film) manages to find an opening for a teaching position at a university: The professor who held the position previously went out drinking one night and then, on his way home, leaned forward at the edge of the subway platform to throw up...
... and the next day his position was available. If you haven't seen it, it's a great black comedy.
Perhaps I should stick to more serious topics though, like middle school graduation.
