The 6 Most Disastrous Work E-Mails Ever Sent

From Cracked.com.

They say you should never write anything in an email that you don't want to see on the front page of the New York Times. And while you may shrug and ask why in the world the Times would print your email about how drunk you got last night, well, you'd be surprised.
These guys found out the hard way.

6. PETER CHUNG (Investment Banker/Sex Machine)

Peter Chung's future couldn't have been brighter. After graduating from Princeton he landed a sweet job with The Carlyle Group, complete with a fancy apartment. Chung soon found himself tempted by the money, women and fast-lane existence that apparently exists in Korea for young investment bankers.

Showing off the virtues instilled by his expensive education, two weeks after landing his new gig Peter was emailing his friends about his ambitious plans for the future:

" ....CHUNG is going to fuck every hot chick in Korea over the next 2 years (5 down, 1,000,000,000 left to go) the second bedroom is for my harem of chickies...I know I was a stud in NYC but I pretty much get about, on average, 5-8 phone numbers a night and at least 3 hot chicks that say that they want to go home with me every night I go out."

We're not sure where he got the billion hot chicks from. In any event, he had set the bar high for himself and needed some help from his friends back home:

"Oh, by the way, someone's gotta start fedexing me boxes of domes
(condoms), I brought out about 40 but I think I'll run out of them by Saturday."

Chung apparently took things a little too far when he boasted about how everyone in the industry was kissing his ass:

"...I have bankers calling me everyday with opportunities and they pretty much cater to my every whim - you know (golfing events, lavish dinners, a night out clubbing)"


Naturally, the e-mail was forwarded to a whole lot of people in the investment banking industry. Within days, Chung was forced to resign in disgrace, probably with a case of crabs to boot. Thus the Sex King of Korea's reign ended shortly after it began.

Cool Classic TV Cars Of The Day

A lineup of famous TV cars. Many of these are from 70s' shows, so you youngun's may not recognize as many as us old folks.

A car has always been an easy way to help define a show's hero, but for many of these series, the cars became characters themselves in a sense. Try to imagine the A-Team with their van, or Crockett & Tubbs without their Ferrari, or Starsky & Hutch without the "Striped Tomato." It just isn't the same.
