Welcome to 2013, H. G. Wells. Glad you could make it. And you’ll be happy to know that the future is even dumber than you ever could have predicted.
A JFK Airport security supervisor has been fired for mistakenly sending out a mass e-mail blast — of his genitals — to nearly two dozen shocked underlings, supervisors and Port Authority executives.
The embarrassing incident occurred around 7:15 a.m. June 21 after Gerard Robson, a project manager for private contractor FJC Security, responded to an airport parking-lot fender bender involving a security guard’s car.
Robson had hoped to alert his bosses and PA execs to what happened by taking photos of the cars and e-mailing the images with his company-issued BlackBerry, sources said.
But Robson somehow attached another snapshot stored on the cellphone — showing him inside a car, “waist down, naked penis out, belly and all,” according to one source.
It went out to about 20 individuals, including subordinates, at least two FJC veeps and two PA supervisors, the sources said.
I’ve had good bosses and bad, but none of them have ever pulled such a dick move.
And it’s obvious that Robson has no future in politics. He apologized almost immediately! He didn’t even try to blame it on anybody else. Have we learned nothing from the amazing, um, comeback of Anthony Weiner?
Of course, the best way to prevent pictures of your penis from appearing on the Internet is to not take any pictures of your penis. Pretty much a foolproof plan. Well, unless the NSA is spying on you, and then who knows what sort of stuff they’ve got on you.
Wait a second… Every TSA agent you’ve ever met already knows what your junk looks like, if they haven’t actually felt for themselves. Why haven’t any of them gotten fired for it?
Just kidding, they’re only violating the privacy of law-abiding United States citizens. That’s a growth industry! No pun intended. Well, okay, maybe a little.
