Reports are coming in this morning about a worker facing dismissal for using an internet site instead of doing some hard graft.
The story, carried 'on the wind' by word of mouth whispers, relates to an employee of a global enterprise, who, it is alleged, wrote countless ridiculous made-up news stories for other individuals to chuckle at, and for nothing else.
The worker, identifiable only by the pseudonym, Donkey Wooms, has had access to the site withdrawn, and faces further disciplinary action if it's proved that any of the material relates to the corporate giant, which it doesn't.
Other writers have been quick to jump to Wooms' defence.
One, Carina-eta, said:
"I told the pillock to be careful, but did he listen? Nah, on and on, spouting bullshit and stupid stories that only he himself laughed at. What a dickhead! Knob!"
Wooms, in his defence, claims that he has his audience's insatiable appetite for his own peculiar brand of hard-hitting distortions of the truth to think of, and that a major writing deal was, surely, just around the corner.
But a spokesman for ****** ****** said:
"He's just a misguided Northern twat! And a lazy sod!"
