NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Lots of guys will admit to looking at porn, but 16,000 times? In one month? At work?

That’s how many times one determined smut-viewer at the SEC allegedly tried to breach the financial watchdog agency’s firewall.

Just to put that into perspective, that’s about 100 failed attempts a day, 12.5 tries per hour, and five minutes between each frustrating failure based on a five-day work week.

AOL Senior Correspondent Buck Wolf says AOL Weird News has published a close look at the SEC scandal involving 33 cases of workers looking at more than Wall Street shenanigans between 2005 to 2010.

Among the freaky findings...

  • One woman who allegedly downloaded more than 600 pornographic images bumped up against 1,800 access denials as she tried to check out smutty sites at work.

  • A senior attorney who had so much porn, he maxed out his hard drive and had to move his collection onto CDs and DVDs, filling several boxes.
