URINE TROUBLE NOW
The Chinese are certainly nononsense if nothing else.
Workers at a home renovation company who fail to complete their tasks are forced to drink urine, eat cockroaches or get belt-whipped. It makes the strained life of a Japanese salaryman seem like a breeze!
Other wayward employees have to shave their heads or drink water from a toilet bowl. Worse, their salaries are withheld for a month.
And everyone else gets to watch the punishment being meted out.
Three managers at the company were jailed from five to 10 days for humiliating others, according to a social media post by the local public security bureau.
As we all held our breath for the results of Brazil’s iconic Miss BumBum contest something went awry at the fabled institution.
One of the finalists ripped the sash off the winner and — gulp — accused her of having a bogus bum. Fighting words if there ever were.
Now, Aline Uva — who placed in the rear of the pack — has been banned from all future competitions, Miss BumBum and otherwise.
Uva blasted the eventual Miss BumBum winner Ellen Santana: “Her butt is plastic.”
She added: “I’m the only one who deserves to be the winner.
“I played by the rules and my bumbum is 100% natural, unlike the winner who has a plastic bottom.”
Founder Cacau Oliver later said: “This is a competition where feelings run high, these fights are part of it.
“But it will be bad for her and for us if she doesn’t give back her winner’s ribbon.”
Santana said it wasn’t just about her perfectly pert posterior, character counts too and “women around the world” look up to her.
