1. In Search of the Elusive Hypo

First, let me say thanks to all the eagle eyes out
there who spotted the typo (Globe and MALE newspaper)
in last week’s edition, which I of course planted to
see if you were all awake. Evidently, many of you are.

Accidental typos are a great source of humor, such as
the prominent Canadian magazine which recently referred
to someone as one of the top ten sexist men in Canada.
Or the menu I once saw that offered up a serving of Spit
Pea Soup. So, I say let us be thankful for those little
sips of the tongue that give us just one more reason to
laugh. (And if you have classics from your office you’d
like to share, then please pass them along!)
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

This week’s tip comes from my buddy Ted Schredd at, who is starting up a
kidnapping service, courtesy of the “Fun Police,” wherein
deserving folks are kidnapped from the their office and
forced to have a day of fun.

So why not take the law into your own hands, and start
up your own vigilante fun squad, and rescue an overworked,
overstressed or otherwise deserving client, employee, boss,
family member or entire team, and give them a much-needed
injection of fun!
3. Quote of the Week

“The number one premise of business is that it need not
be boring or dull. It ought to be fun. If it’s not fun,
you’re wasting your life.” Tom Peters
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

I hope no one works in an office like the office in
Massachusetts that prompted this headline:

Woman Fined for Not Giving 30-Day Notice Before Dying.

Happy Hump Day one and all!
