Domino's Fires Two Employees for Posting Farting-on-Food Videos
In our efforts to promptly and accurately report the important Net news of the day, we often present tales of unwitting Web surfers who, through posts, pictures and videos, jeopardize their livelihood and freedom. In one of the most humorous, and revolting, acts of Internet idiocy we've come across, two Domino's employees lost their jobs and are facing felony charges for videos they uploaded on YouTube.
The two culinary culprits drew the wrath of Domino's by posting videos that displayed employees engaging in inappropriate food-handling techniques, including one kitchen worker who inserted cheese into his nose and passed gas on a salami sandwich. A spokeswoman for Domino's told the BBC that the employees intended the video as a prank, and that they did not serve the tainted food. Regardless, area police have served felony warrants to the two people involved. According to the spokeswoman, Domino's is "'not in a forgive-and-forget mood'," either, and is planning on pursuing a civil suit.
This isn't the first case of felonious farting to hit the Net, as, last year, police charged a West Virginia man for breaking wind in the face of a police officer. Also in 2008, police in Stuart, Florida arrested a teen for disrupting class with repeated odorous releases. From these incidents, we can glean that, while farting is still funny, you shouldn't do it in class, on food, or in the face of a police officer. Remember, timing is everything.
