Humor at Work: Heard any Good Phil-Gags? January 28, 2009

1. Heard any Good Philogags Lately?

Not only is there some essence of truth in all good humor, the
authors of the book “Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar,”
suggest that many jokes contain words of wisdom that reflect
a deeper understanding of philosophy. Authors Thomas Cathcart
and Daniel Klein refer to these jokes as “philogags”.

Philogags remind us that sometimes even simple, off-the-cuff
jokes in the workplace can contain a powerful message, if we
listen carefully and read between the punch lines.

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Spice up your job titles (or at least your temporary project
management titles), so they convey a sense of enthusiasm and fun.
For example, Laura Oppenheimer from The Portland Oregonian listed
some actual creative job titles, including: Chief Wisdom Officer
(for a CEO), Director of Smiles (for a receptionist), Queen of
Flash and Trash (for a merchandising manager), and the V.P. of
B.S. (sadly not what you think, but rather a vice-president
of beer sales at a brewery.)

3. Quote of the Week

“An indecency decently put is the thing we laugh at hardest.”
– Cicero (a long, long, long time ago)

4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky, World

Another wacky story out of Germany: Two German police officers
were mistaken for male strippers after responding to a complaint
about a noisy party. The pair were charged by drunken women urging
the police officers to take their clothes off! (Wait a minute,
wasn’t this an episode of “Friends?”). Fortunately, the officers
managed to leave the party with their pride and clothes in tact.
