Apple. Google. Walmart. Boeing. The U.S. Treasury. These hallowed names are among the crème de la crème in business and the economy. Top of the heap. Cock of the walk. Best and brightest. The A List, you might say.
Unfortunately, from time to time esteemed organizations like these find themselves on an altogether different kind of list. The wrong kind. Here at BNET, we call it the B List.
This is where you'll find the scoundrels and slackers, the frauds and failures, the ne'er-do-wells and nincompoops. Some landed here for nefarious reasons, others from incompetence, arrogance, or good old-fashioned cluelessness. But however they got here, all the members of BNET's B List have one thing in common: They were guilty of the biggest, dumbest, most appalling, or just plain funniest blunders of the year.
