Someone needs to be fired for the “beef about” thing…immediately. 🙂
As for the story, eh. Sounds weird…how was this discovered anyway? Someone eating lunch while experimenting?
Sorry Mr Sleuth, but the E-in-C ain’t gonna fire himself. Slow news week. 😉
C’mon, Paul: adapt to modern times.
Fire yourself and then rehire yourself at a higher salary.
