Default Be afraid be very afraid

Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 600
employees and has the following statistics?

29 have been accused of spouse abuse

7 have been arrested for fraud

19 have been accused of writing bad cheques

117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses

3 have done time for assault

71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit

4 have been arrested on drug-related charges

8 have been arrested for shoplifting

21 are currently defendants in lawsuits

84 have been arrested for drink driving in the last year



Which organisation is this?



It's the 635 members of the House of Commons,
the same group that cranks out hundreds of new
laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.

Pardon me .......but BULLSHIT ALERT

This is an urban legend and false. I've seen it before when the bad people accused are supposed to be the US Congress.

I was told a version this week using the Aussie government instead of the Uk one - they ruined the joke though by including mention of the Road Safety Minister who got done this week for bad driving - that one is actually true
