1. Fun With Ads

You see them everywhere, those unintentionally funny
signs or ads that make you go, “HUH?” For example . . .

Dog for Sale: Eats anything and is fond of children.

Man wanted to work in dynamite factory. Must be willing to travel.

Used cars: Why go anywhere else to be cheated? Come here first.

For sale: Antique desk suitable for
lady with think legs and large drawers.

Our bikinis are exciting! They are simply the tops!

Auto repairs: Try us once and you’ll never go anywhere again!

Searching for these unintentionally funny gems is one of the
easiest ways to sharpen your sense of humor.

And to really give your funny bone a workout, try writing some
of you own “intentionally unintentional” slogans, ads or signs
for you business, office or profession. If you send them along
to me I’ll be happy to post them in future editions of the Hump
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

If you want to give yourself and a co-worker a wee chuckle, call
them on the phone and tell them you are too busy to talk to
them right now, then quickly say good-bye and hang up.

Not only does it make people laugh (usually), it can also give
people the impression that you truly are a busy person, thus
killing two stones with one simple call.
3. Deep Thought of the Week

“Praise is something that someone tells you about
yourself that you’ve suspected all along.”
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

This just in: Chewing gum can make you smarter! Or at
least smelling cinnamon chewing gum can. Researchers (who ARE
these people, anyway?) found that people who chewed cinnamon
chewing gum scored higher on certain task-oriented task and were
able to exhibit better memory and motor-visual quickness.

Happy Hump Day all!
