Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Absurd:

In a ground-breaking ruling, the supreme court in France awarded three contestants on the French version of the programme Temptation Island compensation of about €11,000 (£9,500) each. The judges ruled that the trio were entitled to full employment contracts — including overtime, holidays and even damages for wrongful dismissal upon elimination from the show.

What’s next? The supreme court declaring that World Poker Tour participants who don’t make the final table are entitled to restitution for unfair losing? Call it unemployment for bad beats?

Hat Tip: Reason
