Team-building day ends with several team members out of work.

Bankers fired after mock ISIS beheading video is posted to Instagram.

"OK, now one where we don't look like thirsty bloodsuckers."

Six British bankers are out of work after staging a fake ISIS beheading during a team-building exercise. The video was shot during some downtime at Teamworks Karting in Birmingham as the bank's legal workers donned safety gear. One can assume that the balaclavas, the black and bright orange jumpsuits, and the lack of any common sense gave one of the bankers an idea.

The bank-men pose for a short video where the masked few howl and yell "Allahu Ackbar" and brandishing a wooden coat hanger like a knife. Dressed in an ISIS prisoner-of-terror orange jumpsuit, former-moneyman Saf Ahmed kneels on the ground in the video awaiting his fake death. Ha ha ha ha. Man, it's so funny how that go-kart track has jumpsuits and so do the worst group of monsters currently stalking the earth. Ha ha ha.

Did I not make the comedy come alive for you? Maybe you should watch the 7-second sketch for yourself.

Woof. Don't quit your day job. Because you're fired.

The video was brought to the attention of HSBC by The Sun. The HSBC branch Britishly responded, "We do not tolerate inappropriate behaviour. ... We took the decision to sack the individuals involved. ... This is an abhorrent video and HSBC would like to apologise for any offence."

Now, if the banking world could only do something about the bankers that sunk the economy 7 years ago and made even more money from the collapse. I'm pretty sure that's an actual crime on top of being a fireable offense.
