Embarassing Pictures, Militant Cows, Etc.

France is all abuzz over the theft of "highly intimate" photos of Carla Bruni, the wife of Nicholas Sarkozy, the Premier of France. The photos were allegedly left in the apartment of Ms. Bruni's former lover's brother. Why would anyone keep pictures that they would later worry about? The only place for such pictures is in a cross cut paper shredder. It's amazing that some people can get fame and loads of money when they are capable of overloooking such obvious pitfalls. I just shredded a picture of me standing on the scale in my doctor's office.

A Swiss insurance company fired a worker who went home with a migraine and was later caught on Facebook. She had claimed that she could not work in front of a computer screen. Somehow the company discovered through a friend request that she had surfed at home.


The woman said she could not work in front of a computer as she needed to lie in the dark but was then seen to be active on Facebook, which insurer Nationale Suisse said in a statement had destroyed its trust in the employee. Reuters News reports as follows.


"The woman said she could not work in front of a computer as she needed to lie in the dark but was then seen to be active on Facebook, which insurer Nationale Suisse said in a statement had destroyed its trust in the employee.

"This abuse of trust, rather than the activity on Facebook, led to the ending of the work contract," it said."


We must be in worse shape than I thought. Why would anyone want to work for a company like that. They probably install ejection seats in their bathrooms that go off after five minutes.

Not all the financial news is bad. In some place it is a bull market. In Ireland, a supermarket reported that a bull had terrorised shoppers by storming the aisles instead of sitting quietly in shrink wrapped packages like it's supposed to. Lest you think I jest, I have provided the footage below to prove it.

Could this be the beginning of the revolution long awaited by PETA in which the animal kingdom rises in revolt? The video below with a song by Dana Lyons outlines the disturbing possibilities that await us.
