Dude who outsourced his programming job to China

Bob was his company’s best software developer, got glowing performance reviews and earned more than $250,000 a year.
Then [his employer found that] Bob was paying a Chinese firm about $50,000 a year to do his work, then spent the day surfing the web, watching cat videos and updating his Facebook page.

More from the same article:
“His code was clean, well-written, and submitted in a timely fashion.  Quarter after quarter, his performance review noted him as the best developer in the building.”
but
"Looking at his web browsing history, investigators found that Bob spent his workday checking sites such as Reddit, Ebay, Facebook and LinkedIn and watching cat videos. Then he would type an e-mail at the end of the day to update management about his “work” and left at 5 p.m."

Funny or not-so-much?
