Default snail sacked from charity work

So do you remember the guy who walked the London marathon in a deep sea divers outfit? Well this year he crawled the marathon dressed as the snail out of the magic roundabout doing a mile a day- so 26 days or crawling. And after failing to raise enough money he's been sacked by the charity he was working for. Can you imagine crawling 26miles. To date he has raised more than 5 million bit harsh form the charity I think- maybe he's a bit slimy at work or something...

I saw this one too! Seems a bit mean to give him the chop. I would love to see the documentation if he decides to take it to the Industrial Tribunal!

Name? Lloyd Scott
Occupation? Snail
Workplace? Magic Roundabout

BTW: Eddie Kidd the Motorcycle Stunt Rider, who was paralysed made it through to the end!
