Internet users have over the last few days mobilised in support of the Oz banker caught copping an eyeful of shapely local lass MIranda Kerr during a live TV broadcast, amid speculation that Sydney's Macquarie Bank was poised to give him his marching orders: Since the outrage spilled onto the interwebs earlier this week, it's …
Why are the w^Hbankers apologising for causing offense? Everyone found it bloody funny.
Still some sanity in the world
Second time in a week that we've seen that the folks down under still have a sense of proportion about these things. Is it too late to emigrate?
Decisions down under.
It seems to me that the news we get from down under falls into two camps - the level-headed and sensible decisions, and then the hatstand ones.
Someone Should Be Fired
The colleague who set him up by sending the E-mail. That is the person who should be shown the door. And, in fact, criminal charges should be given consideration, since this irresponsible act risked causing an innocent man to be dismissed from his job.
Come on, how much free advertising has this one incident got the bank?
Good grief man - are you for real??
Or a banker.
Surely the pictures could be classed as perfectly normal merchant banking material..?!
Rumour has it....
.....that the jokester that sent the emails was none other than Miranda's brother, Wayne.......
... lucky it wasn't am image covered by any "strict liability" laws
... also, lucky for the TV company that they are not in the US as I'm sure there they would be getting fined for allowing the image to appear on a broadcast.
I wish people would learn to have a laugh every now and again.
This is clearly a brilliant prank- one worthy of the BOfH even. The pics he was looking at have to be the tamest I ever saw in 5 years of working with traders. Most of them had pics like that framed on their desks.
Hats off to all involved, and anyone who managed to get offended should take a long hard look at their dullard souls.
Ho hum - any thoughts as to whether the BOfH will return one friday lunchtime?
So thats the christmas party entertainment booked then.
Macquarie Bank Christmas Party featuring Miranda Kerr.
don't see an issue
aside from the "reporter's" accent. Very nasal, not very attractive.
Is that atypical of female Aussie newsreaders? I prefer the neighbours accent.
who cares about the wank... err banker
Miranda kerr is hot!!! can we please get a miranda kerr icon?
the bbc story on this
features this priceless line -
Ms Kerr has had a surge of interest in her.
in her what I'm not sure.
She is one pretty woman.
Miranda Kerr is hot. Too bad she has such a hideous accent.
My bet is that it was the guy who came to talk to him.
"shapely local lass MIranda Kerr".
Are you kidding me?
Show him the door.
In the time he wasted ogling that poor young woman, he could have lost billions on the mortgages markets.
Oh, hang on....
