1. Arm Twisting Humor

Two New Zealand telecom CEOs proved that legal disputes
don’t always have to get ugly. The CEOs of Team Talk and
MCS Global Digital settled their dispute over access to a
radio network in good humor—with three rounds of arm
wrestling! The results: no huge payouts to the lawyers,
no lengthy court battles, and loads of free PR.
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Make the most you can of your breaks (you do get
breaks, don’t you?). Avoid fats and carbs, eat
healthy, get fresh air, back away from the computer or
Fred (if Fred is more annoying than your computer).

If you’ve been sitting, then go for a walk; if you’ve
been standing all day, then take a load off; if you’ve
been chatting all day, find a quiet sanctuary. Create a
ritual that involves some fun or stress busting techniques.
The better use you make of your breaks, the more refreshed
you’ll feel. Your sense of humor will thank you for it.
3. Quote of the Week

“I knew it was time to retire when it took me an hour
and a half to watch sixty minutes.” Anon.
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

Here’s you wacky fact of the week: According to Alan
Hirsch of the Smell and Taste Research Institute,
the scent of barbecue makes a room feel smaller,
while a green apple scent makes rooms feel larger.
Please adjust your odors accordingly.

Happy Hump Day everyone. Remember to make the person in
the mirror laugh at least three times a day.
