I know this is a serious business, but this just made me laugh. You can just picture one of the Captains or RSM running in afterwards to find him naked under a table with a goat and covered in p!ss. He's not going to be getting any stick about it.

Of course not.
Oh, come on Sergey, you plonka. You missed out the important bit....
