I suppose some may find this idea refreshing... even I might wanna try this if I ever have a large enough sink... but you wun be very happy if you find out about the following news...

BK employee takes Bath in Sink

A Burger King employee who took a bath in the burger chain's sink is probably regretting that someone filmed it and posted the video to MySpace, because the local Health Department was among those viewers who were not amused.

Mark McDonnell, the County Health Commissioner, was emailed the video and used it as evidence against Burger King.

"Any bacteria on his skin could have been deposited giving people food poisoning," McDonnell told WHIOTV.

In the clip, the employee is seen bathing in the sink, using a bucket market "sanitizing solution" to dump soapy water on himself. At one point the employee who was filming the prank tells the manager that someone is bathing in the sink, and the manager simply shakes her head and continues counting money.

Burger King has issued this statement about the incident:

"We have sanitized the sink and have disposed of all other kitchen tools and utensils that were used during the incident. We have also taken appropriate corrective action on the employees that were involved in this video.

Additionally, the remaining staff at this restaurant is being retrained in health and sanitation procedures."

Burger King bagged 25-year-old Timothy Tackett in August 2008 after a four-minute video of his birthday bath in the sink of a Xenia, Ohio, restaurant landed on MySpace and YouTube.

Tackett appeared to be naked in the sink.

Burger King promised to work with the health department to retrain staffers in proper sanitation procedures.

KFC gals turned sink into hot tub

Los Angeles - They serve fast food, but they're slow learners.

Four months after a Burger King employee lost his job for taking a bubble bath in a restaurant sink, three scantily clad teens were fired when they turned a basin at their northern California KFC into their personal hot tub.

They landed in hot water with the chicken chain's management when one of the bikini-clad dimwits made the same mistake as the Ohio Burger King employee - she posted photos of the dippy escapade on MySpace.

The photos included captions such as "haha KFC showers!" and "haha we turned on the jets," and were filed under a gallery called "KFC moments," according to the Record Searchlight newspaper in Redding, Calif.

The story broke before the unidentified girl could scrub public access to her profile. On her MySpace page, the girl listed herself as a 17-year-old worker at the Anderson KFC near Redding.

"I'm a KFC worker, they are my best friends and my family," she said on her site.

The three were suspended Tuesday - and have since been fired, said KFC spokesman Rick Maynard.

"KFC has zero tolerance for violations of our operating standards, and our franchisee has taken immediate action by terminating the employees who were involved," said Maynard.

An assistant manager told the Record Searchlight that no manager was on duty when the steamy photos were likely taken and that the trio closed the restaurant themselves.

Now lets hope these videos doesn't give any funny ideas to our local fast food restaurants employees...
