1. More Humour Lessons from the Pros

Comedic genius Steven Wright believes that the easiest way
to nourish your sense of humour is to tap into a child-like
curiosity about everything around you (also a great
technique for looking for creative solutions). A child-like
innocence has helped Steven Wright create jokes such as:
“If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year, why do
they need locks on their doors?” or “What do batteries run
on?” Adopting a child’s mindset, although perhaps
not appropriate for the boardroom, may be just the thing you
need to help you look at a problem with fresh eyes, or to find
the humour in a stressful situation.
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

It’s the perfect time to set some humour goals for yourself
or your workplace. So drag out the calendar and resolve
to have more fun this year – how many workplace socials do
you want this year? How many fun theme days? How often are
you going to say thanks in a fun way to your customers or
peers? What fun goals are you setting in your personal life?
And remember – writing them down and talking openly about
dramatically improves your odds of achieving them!
3. Quote of the Week

“Humorists always sit at the children’s table.” Woody Allen
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

The San Antonio city council passed a bylaw stipulating
that strippers must wear their “stripper permits” at all
times while performing on stage.

No word on how large the permits are.

Happy Hump Day one and all!
