The Hump Day Humor-Gram, February 1, 2006, Issue Number 161

Warning: Only one more sleep until ground hog day!
Please plan accordingly.

1. How’s Your H.Q.?

According to a Harlequin Romance survey, three-quarters of
Canadian women are more attracted to a man’s wit than
to his looks. Although the percentage was highest
in Canada, the same preference emerged for women from a
total of 16 countries. Other surveys have suggested that
co-workers prefer working with fun people, and even CEO’s
report that, all factors being equal, they’d prefer to hire
someone with a well developed sense of humor.

All this suggests one simple fact: increasing your humor
quotient can increase your attractiveness to other people
(and, according to anecdotal evidence, dogs, monkeys and
dolphins) and, as we’ve reported oh-so-many times,
contribute to greater success in the workplace.
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Hold a “Funny Story” luncheon/meeting or social event
where everyone is required, as an “admission fee”, to
bring along one hilarious personal story to share with
the group. It’s a great way to have some fun while
getting to know your colleagues at a more personal level.
3. Quote of the Week

“I made a New Year’s resolution that I’d like to share with
everyone. This year, I resolved not to procrastinate
anymore. And I’m going to start sometime in early
February.” Anonymous
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

An 83 year-old woman from Tequesta, Florida was fined
$1.8 million dollars in cumulative fines for not mowing
her lawn. (I’m not making this up, I mean really, who
could make this stuff up?) 1.8 million dollars.
She’s had to declare bankruptcy and sell off two
properties to pay off the fine. So the next time
you have to pay a parking ticket, I don’t want
to hear any whining from anyone . . .

Happy Hump Day everyone. Keep laughing. And mowing.
