15 Olympics Officials Spent $69,000 on Lunch in London
Must be nice to have a big fat expense account

A Reddit user (who has since deleted their account) posted a photo of this receipt and commented, “My friend’s a waiter and this is a receipt for an official lunch for 15 Olympic Bosses in London. Now we see where all the money’s going.” While the authenticity of the receipt can’t be verified, the total racks up to Â£44,660.26 (about $69,424.37). While most of the bill looked normal, what stood out was a bottle of Hennessy 1853, priced at £19,000. Must be nice to have a big fat expense account. [Eater]
