LOS ANGELES (Just Laugh) – As laughable salaries continue to drive the educators of our nation’s future towards summer jobs to make ends meet, it seems that even the most famous of high school administrators can’t help but take whatever job he can get as Bayside High’s own Principal Belding was spotted recently on the Santa Monica Pier wearing a ridiculous-looking watermelon on his head for whatever meager tips passerbys had to offer.

“Oh, it’s not so bad…” reassured the beloved principal as he took a quick break to rinse himself down and shoo away the lingering bees and hornets. “People love watermelon during the summer, and this sure beats working at the 7/11 where I always run into kids from school during Free Slurpee Day.”

“Me and Mrs. B are fine – don’t you worry about it, but I really do have to get back to the fruits of my labor, if you know what I mean!” Principal Belding laughed before jamming his head into the watermelon helmet once more and donning the classic Captain Watermelon goggles that just make him look like the biggest dork imaginable.

Captain Watermelon can be seen on Santa Monica Pier from 10am – 4:30pm from now until Tuesday, August 12th when Los Angeles area schools resume for the 2015-2016 school year. Tipping is greatly appreciated for that poor bastard – you’ll no doubt agree when you see him for yourself…
