Italian Supreme Court says it's cool to watch smut during your lunch break

This is certainly one sexy way to spend your lunch break.

You're free to watch porn during your lunch break in Italy, so says the Supreme Court in Rome.

That is thanks to the case of the Fiat employee Giuseppe Z, who was sacked by the car manufacturer in 2008 when found watching a porn DVD during his lunch break.

According to The Telegraph, the Supreme Court has ruled that the worker was free to do what he wanted during his break and, so, shouldn't have been fired.

As it didn't interfere with his actual work, the judges in Rome rather brilliantly added that he had enjoyed "just a glimpse of the film during a meal break".

Interestingly, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of Fiat when they sacked another employee for smoking marijuana during his lunch break.

Sounds like they pushed their luck a bit in the end.
