    As reported by Foxnews.com....

    Drivin' that train, naked as sin, Casey Jones you better watch your speed.

    A train driver in England has been fired for stripping while at the controls of an express train, according to Sky News.

    The driver allegedly used his cell phone to photograph himself nude while cruising at 125 mph from Sheffield to London.

    Investigators say bosses at Midland Main Line were alerted by another employee the driver sent the nude photo to.

    "The driver was suspended straight away while we held a full investigation," a Midland Main Line spokeswoman told Sky News. "The driver has now been dismissed. Safety is, and always will be, our main priority."

    According to The Sun, the incident is part of an epidemic in Britain of drivers stripping just before passing other trains to flash each other as they go by.

    Gotta watch these bloks, on second thought, I'd rather not.:eek: :eek:

    Yes, but it is in a series of "strange things" so you'll have to scroll through them to find it. Try here.

    First story - I'm going with "dumb"

    Second story - I choose "hit the hunter" over "jump the tracks".

    See! This is what happens when you re-privatise the railways in Britain. I cannot imagine this happening during the days of British Rail or the pre-grouping companies. It makes me so glad I emmigrated if this is what the British rail system is coming to.

    After my job took Me to Barrow- In - Furness England for 2 long years I can see why. They were bored to death and ran out of money trying to get drunk.
    The weather there is so bad they would have died of frostbite before they got their underwear off......

    Notice how the only people who strip are the ones you'd rather poke your eye out than see naked????

    Is "naked as sin" more or less naked than regular naked? ;)

    Given: Adam and Eve were naked in the garden of eden.
    Given: When they sinned, and ate the apple, they became aware of their
    nakedness, and were ashamed, and clothed themselves.

    Does, therefore, "naked as sin", mean fully clothed? :confused:

    Mooning an approaching train is;
    a. "that's no moon, it's a passenger station!"
    b. "tossing an apple?"
    c. an approaching moon?
    d. Stupidity follows the water cycle, it was raining, so that was STUPID! :D
