No sense of humor


A voice
over artist famous for her broadcasts for London Underground has been sacked after Tube bosses discovered that she was using her skills for a spoof Website.

Emma Clarke, 36, recorded the announcements in the same tones that have warned millions of passengers to "Mind The Gap." Her spoof messages included, "We would like to remind our American tourist friends that you are almost certainly talking too loudly."

"Would the passenger in the red shirt pretending to read the paper, but who is actually staring at that woman's chest, please stop? You are not fooling anyone, you filthy pervert."

She said it was all for a laugh, but Tube operator Transport for London (TfL) failed to see the funny side and dropped her, after using her voice for eight years.
