    Fourteen employees at an El Monte, Calif., aquatic park are organizing an effort to get their jobs back after they were fired for filming a parody video they say was meant to highlight how much they loved working at their jobs.

    In the video, a group of lifeguards dances in humorous choreographed moves in an homage to the "Gangnam Style" video that has become a huge viral sensation online, with more than 130,000,000 views. However, the city of El Monte did not see the humor in the video, titled "Lifeguard Style," firing all of the lifeguards who participated and the pool's manager. City officials said they had violated the El Monte Aquatic Center's uniform policy.

    By looking at the video, they could have easily been fired for not being in shape enough to be lifeguards. A few of those tub butts have no business being in charge of saving a potential drowning victim, etc.

    They are the best ones to have when it is freezing water because they have more insulation.

    I Think I seen your pic years ago. You better hope the heavy chicks or guys will save you from drowning because the fit ones would probably leave you be cause you were not pretty enough to save. :p: ;)
