It only takes 30 seconds of fun to ruin your day!  15 "Harlem Shaking" miners lose their jobs in Western Australia.

A group of workers from Barminco and Hahn Electrical Contracting were fired for their involvement in a re-enactment of the viral dance craze, the Harlem Shake.

One of the sacked miners claims no safety regulations were breached, and a second says no-one was endangered in the stunt at Agnew gold mine, the West Australian reports.

The Barminco staff have not only been fired, but banned for life, according to a letter of dismissal.
