Humourless bloody Aussies

Up to 15 miners have been fired for?performing the “Harlem Shake” dance craze?underground in an Australian gold mine, according to reports.

The West Australian newspaper said the miners lost their six-figure salaries over the stunt in the Agnew Gold Mine last week.

A dismissal letter cited by the paper says mine owner Barminco considered the stunt a safety issue. Barminco did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday.

A YouTube video shows eight miners performing the convulsive dance. A sacked worker who would not give his name told the newspaper that up to 15 people were fired, including some who watched the performance but did not participate.

I can see the management’s point about it, perhaps, being a safety issue. ?But instant dismissal? ?Including some staff that only watched it?

I’m telling you, the rot has well and truly set in over there.
