A Florida middle school teacher claims that she did not approach one of her students with a ruler, in an attempt to measure her cleavage, calling it "boobage." But Joan Bannister nonetheless resigned, before her scheduled hearing Monday on the incident, reports the Orlando Sentinel. It sounds like another one of those bizarre scandals that seems to, more often than not, involve a teacher.

The 53-year-old math teacher at Eustis Middle School allegedly told one of her students that she wasn't complying with the dress code in front of the whole class, and she could prove it by measuring her exposed cleavage, according to the girl's complaint. Bannister supposedly came toward her with a ruler, and referred to her cleavage as "boobage."
