Voice of London Underground sacked

Okay I've just read about this today and I just have to say that officers at the British Underground are just a bunch of "gits" and "prats" with no sense of humor at all. They fired the official announcer for the London Tube System just because she posted some spoof messages ON HER WEBSITE!!

When I was reading through the news article, I thought that she actually said it over the loudspeaker but I went over the article again and saw that she just posted it on her website for fun.

Some of the spoof messages she posted that were in the original London Underground voice were:

"We would like to remind our American tourist friends that you are almost certainly talking too loudly."

* "Would the passenger in the red shirt pretending to read the paper but who is actually staring at that woman's chest please stop. You are not fooling anyone, you filthy pervert."

* "Would passengers filling in answers on their Sudokus please accept that they are just crosswords for the unimaginative and are not in any way more impressive just because they contain numbers."

You can hear other spoof messages on her website: http://www.emmaclarke.com/fun/mind-the-gap/spoof-london-underground-announcements
It's actually pretty funny and I don't know why they would fire her. She should sue them for illegal dismissal or something. Hope she gets a good lawyer and sue their a**es off.
