Arthur Simeon Reveals His Afternoon Rave Habit On The Panel
submit to reddit

When Arthur Simeon, Allana Harkin and Jonas Chernick were on The Panel, the topic of the day was doctor's notes — and whether we should just get rid of them altogether.

Chernick was firmly on the "get rid of them" side:

"I'm opposed to the idea of sick notes," he said. "The ability to execute a fake sick call should be rewarded with a day off, and you shouldn't have to follow up!"

But Simeon pointed out a modern-day difficulty with Chernick's strategy.

"They're already stalking you on Facebook anyway," he said. "They're going to find out that I'm actually at a rave at three o'clock in the afternoon. Don't ask me to bring a sick note — just sign into Twitter and find out what I'm doing."
