Bureaucrats gone wild!

UK Telegraph:
Staff at a government agency office have been reported leaping naked from filing cabinets and carrying out stomach-churning pranks.

Civil servants are said to have had sex in the lavatories, taken drugs, used foul language, brawled in the reception area and held break-dancing contests in working hours.

Some of the goings-on at the Rural Payments Agency, a branch of the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, in Lancaster House, Newcastle upon Tyne, are believed to have been captured on CCTV.
Sorry, but I'm not going to buy the video. And apparently they were really a fun bunch:
"There is an horrific new craze of vomiting into official cups and leaving the cups to fester in cupboards until discovered through the horrendous smell. There is a list of shocking and awful acts in work time including sex in the toilets, drug-taking and swearing is rife."

The Rural Payments Agency is responsible for allocating funds in rural areas, conducting inspections and livestock tracing.
Hmm, I don't think anyone else is going to buy the video either, although they might attract a few fans if they got the livestock in on the action.

Oh well, if their video careers don't pan out, I'm sure there is a place for them at the United Nations. They'd fit right in, with or without the livestock.
