    "The kicker: According to the paper, being footless does not necessarily qualify Url for unemployment compensation."

    Sounds like this guy didn't have a leg to stand on.

    How do you cook foot anyway? In a pot of beans?...maybe with greens?
    Maybe he was going to make pulled foot bar-b-que.

    You gotta be one lazy mammer-jammer to go to that length to keep from working...

    Usually, when a thief is after someone else's money, he tries to physically harm other people, not himself. This is what happens when theft is legalized by the government. Socialism doesn't work. "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need."

    How lazy/crazy do you have to be to want to cut your own limb off in order to no work again? I think he should have tried to cut his neck off, that would've kept him from work.


    maybe he can work at the DMV now.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    From article;

    "He will be assessed once he is out of hospital, and we will see what work we can find for him," Hermann Gössinger, a spokesman for the employment benefits office, said.
