    An artist who was sacked by a biscuit company took revenge by adding sex scenes to their famous tins.

    Huntley & Palmer, which created Ginger Nuts, failed to spot the "extras" in its genteel garden party design, says The Sun.

    Tens of thousands were sold before a grocer noticed a couple romping in the bushes, two dogs locked together and a jam jar with the word **** on it.

    I just love creative people! :) Things like this must be why my employer has you escorted out of the office by a uniformed guard right after they can you and then they FedEx your belongings to you.

    My husband had an ex-employee that launched a virus throughout their entire network, they have spend about $10K to fix all the computers. He launched it when he was asked to come into my husbands office, I guess he knew he was going to be fired. The guy is being sued to recoup the costs...it will take yrs to get anything out of this guy.

    Sexy Cookie Tin Snapped Up at Auction



    LONDON (Reuters) - An otherwise ordinary cookie tin featuring hidden drawings of two dogs mating and a pair of naked lovers fetched 423 pounds ($752) at an English auction Friday -- proving that sex sells.



    Cookie makers Huntley & Palmers sold thousands of the tins, decorated with an early 20th-century illustration of a genteel picnic, without realizing a disgruntled employee had painted in the sexually explicit scenes.


    "It's really a pretty ordinary tin, but its obvious imperfections attracted a great deal of interest and it was bought by a private collector," said Helen Carless of Lawrence's Auctioneers in Somerset in southwest England.


    "I guess it's true that sex certainly does sell -- even for biscuit tin collectors," she said.
