I gotta wonder what was going through the minds of the upper management at Prosper, Inc, when they found out they were being sued for waterboarding an employee during sales training.
What. The. Fuck?
The two quotes are priceless:
"We're not the mean waterboarding company that people think we are," ...said their General Counsel.
So we're...what? The Friendly Waterboarding Company? WTF? They pay this guy to be a lawyer???
"How many times did the CIA even do waterboarding? Three times?" added Dave Ellis, the company president.
"But look at the damage it did to America's reputation," Brunt pointed out. "And it's going to hurt our image."
Ya know...you torture one freakin employee...dang, a little pair of thumb screws or somethin'... and suddently you're Vlad the Impaler or somethin', ya know?
I'm reminded of the SNL skit, with Faster, faster! Cody wants a pony!
