1. Boss’s Day!

Yes, October 16th is “Boss Day”, a day in which folks are encouraged
to show their thanks and appreciation to their hard-working bosses,
(who are often the least appreciated people in many organizations).

So take your boss (or A boss if you can’t locate your own boss)
to lunch, bring him a donut, send her a thank you card or
give them a fun office toy.

And if you are out there thinking, but my boss doesn’t deserve
a thanks, keep in mind that by showing them some appreciation
hopefully you’ll model the behavior you would like to see from
them, and perhaps encourage them to start returning the thanks
more often!
2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip

Hold a match the boss to the baby photo contest. Seeing your boss
they way they came into this world can help everyone see them in a
whole new light . . . (unless your boss is bald and already
drools a lot).
3. Quote of the Week

“When people laugh together they cease to be young and old,
teacher and pupil, worker and boss. They become a single
group of human beings.” W. Lee Grant

Bonus Quote: ” A leader without a sense of humor is like a lawn
mower at a cemetery. They both have a lot of people underneath
them, but no one is paying them any attention.” Bob Ross
4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky World

The latest “Ig Nobel” prizes were awarded. These awards recognize
actual science research projects that are a bit wacky or downright

Some of this year’s winners:

A study that “analyzed the forces required to drag sheep over
various surfaces”

A Dutch scientist’s report that documented the first known case
of homosexual necrophilia found in a mallard duck.

A Swedish study that found that chickens prefer beautiful humans
over less attractive humans.

Happy Hump Day! May the farce continue to be with you . . .
