1. More Laugh Lab Results

Yes, more laugh lab results are pouring in from the world’s largest
joke research project.

This week’s interesting tidbit is this:

According to their research into animal jokes, the funniest animal
is . . . drum roll please . . . a duck. That is to say that jokes
which feature ducks over other animal choices tend to get
bigger laughs.

So the next time you’re telling a joke in a business presentation
or around the meeting table, be sure to weave in a duck and quack
everyone up.

Incidentally, the winning animal joke entry into the Laugh Lab
research was:

Two ducks were sitting in a pond when one duck said, “Quack!”
The other duck looked at him and said, “Hey! I was going to say

(Kind of makes you wonder what the losing entries were . . .)
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip – And the Envelope Please . . .

In honour of the up-coming Oscars, why not stage your own
Oscar ceremony, complete with cheesy speeches, cheesy costumes,
and cheese.

You can dole out a “Best Actor/Actress” award for the employee
who did a stellar job filling in for someone else, or who kept
their composure in the face of an annoying customer.

Or how, in honor of “The Odd Couple,” an “Oscar” to the person
who has the messiest desk and a “Felix” for the neatest desk/office?

And have some fun doling out some fun awards such as . . .

The Person Most Likely to O.D. on Coffee Award
The Employee Least Likely to Be Voted Off the Island
The Person Most Likely to Jam the Photocopier
The Person most Likely to beat Up the Photocopier
The Customer Most Likely to Tattoo Our Logo on Their Forehead
The Employee Most Likely to be Mistaken for the Fed Ex Guy
3. Quote of the Week

“I remain one thing and one thing only, and that is a clown. And
that places me on a far higher plane than any politician.” Charlie
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

City officials in a town in Norway have designated a separate
“kiss-n-ride” commuter lane to allow people time to kiss
good-bye to each other without backing up the street traffic,
which is reportedly what had been happening when too many couple
were taking too long with their romantic good-byes!
