The Not-So-Amazing Race

March 4th, 2009 · 9 Comments

It takes a lot of guts to participate in a cross country bike race. I certainly wouldn’t have the balls to do it. Bike shorts always makes them chafe.

One guy not only had the balls to participate in a race, but he also had the balls to sue his employer who fired him for participating in the bike race when he had taken a sick day, according to the Daily Mail.

He took nearly three weeks of sick leave, but his employer realized what he was up to when they spotted a photograph of him participating in the bike race. They’re right. The camera does add 10 pounds of balls.

The worst part about the photo? He wasn’t wearing a helmet. Not only is a bad example to the workforce, but he’s also a fly in the face of public safety. The irony would be so delicious if, God forbid, he injured himself because he wasn’t wearing a helmet, but, uh oh, he’s out of sick days.
