IT publisher/cuckoo VNU has fired one of its sales staff for downloading "loads and loads" of porn on his work computer.

The salesman had grown so used to grabbing his saucy snaps that over-familiarity bred incaution. The alarm was sounded when he downloaded some fleshy photos in full view of a female colleague. She made mention of it and when the guilty party was away on some team-building nonsense, de management decided to have a look at his computer.

And there they found an enormous quantity of porn covering the whole spectrum of visual masterbatory aids. He was informed upon his return that his passion wasn't shared by the company and from then on nor was his pay check. He was then escorted outside.

In celebration of the large number of people managing to get themselves fired for downloading porn while at work, The Reg has decided to hold a special employee porn day where prizes will be awarded for quantity (in Gb), quality and novelty of porn taken off the Net between the hours of 10 and 6. The only stipulation is that it is all free. ®
