Bulgarian Politician Loses Job Due to Farmville

It appears that even Bulgaria is struggling to cope with the massive popularity of Facebook and the games that come with it as a city councilman was let go due to playing Farmville while at work.

Dimitar Kerin, a member of the Plovdiv city council in the country’s capital, Sofia, had been warned three weeks ago that he was to cease playing the game while at work. Kerin didn’t listen, and earlier this week was ousted as a councilman after he lost a vote of confidence amongst his co-workers.

Now the main difference is, if this happened in America, it would result in people getting sued and press conferences clogging our TV stations with Kerin’s formal apology and his plan to return to golf, er, I mean the city council.
