Yahoo Erotica Editor Fired for Excessive Programming

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:55 pm

Fred Munk yesterday lost his job for excessive perl programming. Munk was hired for categorization and review of links to pornographic websites for Yahoo’s Erotica department. He allegedly spent more time programming perl-scripts than looking for porn.

“He was fired for gross laziness” reports Diane Vice, Yahoo’s Director of Consumer Porn. “I mean, it’s okay to use company resources for fun stuff for fifteen minutes after lunch, to stimulate digestion by whipping up some nifty regular expression or obfuscating the break-condition in a for-loop, but this Munk-guy has a serious productivity problem. I told him get some professional help, but Fred didn’t listen and continued to churn out code during work hours — compulsively, obsessively, just sick!”
