Dental assistant Melissa Nelson was fired by her boss of 10 years because he felt her presence was a threat to his marriage
Horndog bosses in Iowa have a new tool to save their marriages they can fire employees who are too hot for the workplace.
The states all-male Supreme Court ruled 7-0 Friday that an Iowa City dentist legally canned his female assistant because she was irresistibly attractive and a threat to his marriage.
The bombshell ruling came after Melissa Nelson sued her boss of 10 years, Dr. James Knight, for discrimination.
The married mother claims she was fired in January 2010 after Knight's wife became jealous of the pairs relationship, which included harmless text messages between them outside of work.
I dont think its fair. I dont think its right, Nelson said on CNN Saturday night. The 32-year-old also said she was stunned to be fired.
I worked hard, enjoyed my job, and one day it just came to a screeching halt.

Maybe wife was afraid he would take T Boone Pickens advice to heart - ‘Drill here. Drill now. Drill, drill drill!’
nobody is “irresistably” hot. Certainly not her. If he deemed her that, you gotta wonder what the wife looks like.
I am virtually unemployable...now at least I know why.
Private business should be able to let someone go just because. And then there were unions....and PC....and all that cr**.
When does her calender come out?
Not a bad idea at all.
I like it.
Would have avoided the court too.
I knew I was lucky to marry well but if that’s what constitutes irresistibly attractive, I’m even luckier than I thought.
Hahaha, bombshell ruling, got to love those sharp
And after about five rounds of this, she writes an article for the Enquirer: “I can’t keep a job in a dental office because I’m too sexy!”
Of course, in Islamic countries just being hot is illegal.
Her face is a bit better than average. If she is considered really cute, her body probably compensates well enough to send her into the cute category.
She may also have an engaging personality.
This type publicity will probably get her a Playboy centerfold offer.
Irresistable? That's some approbation.
I think she was released before anything happened to her beebers...
Idiots Out Walking Around (IOWA).
Harmless text messages? I'm pretty sure if I was engaging in "harmless text messages" they would be harmful to my physical and emotional health if my wife found them.
It’s Iowa. An Iowa 10 is a California 4...
“but hey, it is Iowa. /ducking”
Here is your appropriate Iowa welcome.
The dentist’s clientle had to recline in the chair before they had a place to hang their hat.
I think a few more photos are needed in order to determine just what was worrying the dentist's wife.
