Dutch Olympic Sponsor Busted for Urinating on Vladimir Putin's Fence

Talk about wrong place at the wrong time. Atilay Uslu, the head of Dutch speedskating sponsor Corendon Dutch Airlines, had just left a party at the Heineken Holland House in Sochi in search of a 2 am shawarma. Nature called, and he started micturating on a nearby fence. Said fence just so happened to be protecting the Olympics residence of Vladimir Putin. Russian soldiers descended. Per the Moscow Times:

During his detention Uslu, who did not know who lived in the villa beyond his impromptu toilet, said he heard the guards talk about a “one-way ticket to Siberia” and use the Turkish word for “dungeon.” When he was later released and returned his possessions, which included 3000 euros ($4100) for buying cruise tickets for his employees, he said that he was missing 1000 euros ($1366). He has not tried to get the money back.

In the business world, that’s what’s known as a sunk cost.
