#%*! up of the week

I once worked with a team of people that celebrated the biggest mistake or embarrassment made by someone that month.  You got a trophy that was yours for the month, until Рyou hoped Рsomeone did something significantly dumb enough for it to be passed on to their desk.

It was proudly displayed.  It was done with good humour and a recognition that mistakes are what makes us human.

If the Fairfax newsroom doesn’t have such a tradition, they should start one, and Amy Maas can be its inaugural recipient.

      I don’t think his member was extended for long enough to qualify.

      • notrotsky

        Yes good point

  • notjaffa

    How could unFairfax possibly decide who had made the biggest f@#k up of the month? With the number of possible contenders, it would be a logistical nightmare!

  • Pissedoffyouth

    Yay more money for fuck-ups!

  • Bart67

    Actually, this fuck up would be a contender.

    (Note to John Minto, this is how you do it, with some bloody class and style, and I bet the organisers are now looking at each other and wondering “How the hell did we forget Desmond?”)

  • cows4me

    An early Christmas present for pedophile’s ? Mind you I’m not sure how much they care for the children that aren’t theirs let alone the ones that are theirs.

  • Cowgirl

    That was unfortunate.

    Apparently they can’t spell ‘caption’ anymore either – is anyone proofing this stuff? The mistakes are so frequent that I’m beginning to think not.

    Ironically it’s misspelled in the caption.
