    Company Policy:
    Effective from January 2005

    Dress Code
    It is advised that you come to work dressed according to your
    salary. If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci
    bag, we assume you are doing well financially and therefore do
    not need a raise. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to
    manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes,
    and therefore you do not need a raise. If you dress just right,
    you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not
    need a raise.

    Sick Days
    We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of
    sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to
    come to work.

    Personal Days
    Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are
    called Saturday & Sunday.

    Bereavement Leave
    This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do
    for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should
    be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In
    rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral
    should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to
    allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently
    leave one hour early.

    Toilet Use
    Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is
    now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end
    of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll
    will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be
    taken. After your second offence, your picture will be posted
    on the company bulletin board under the "Chronic Offenders
    category". Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be
    sanctioned under the company's mental health policy.

    Lunch Break
    Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat
    more, so that they can look healthy. Normal size people get 15
    minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their
    average figure. Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because
    that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.

    Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to
    provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all
    questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations,
    irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations,
    accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be
    directed elsewhere.


    • Guess there is some levity in every profession.

      First-year students at Med School were receiving their first anatomy
      class with a real dead human body. They all gathered around the surgery
      table with the body covered with a white sheet.

      The professor started the class by telling them, "In medicine, it is
      necessary to have 2 important qualities as a doctor.

      The first is that you not be disgusted by anything involving the human
      For an example, the Professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger
      in the butt of the corpse, withdrew it and stuck his finger in his

      "Go ahead and do the same thing," he told his students.
      The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes, but eventually
      took turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead body and sucking on

      When everyone had finished, the Professor looked at them and told them,
      "The second most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle
      finger and sucked on my index finger.

      Now learn to pay attention."


      • We have all had bad dates...but this takes the cake. This just tells you how tough it is to be single nowadays. This was on the "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno. Jay went into the audience to find the most embarrassing first date that a woman ever had. The winner described her worst first date experience. There absolutely no question as to why her tale took the prize!
        She said it was midwinter ... snowing and quite cold...and the guy had taken her skiing to Lake Arrowhead. It was a day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and truly had never met before. The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they were headed home late that afternoon. They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to realize that she should not have had that extra latte.
        They were about an hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere! Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for a while. Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point where she told him that he had better stop and let her pee beside the road, or it would be the front seat of his car. They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants down and started. Unfortunately, in the deep snow she didn't have good footing, so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself. Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking.
        All she could think about was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the situation. Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to pump handles immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem due to the extreme cold.
        Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor she answered her date's concerns about "what is taking so long" with a reply that indeed, she was "freezing her butt off and in need of some assistance"! He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing. She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma. Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem.
        Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free. So, as she looked the other way, her first-time date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender. As for the Tonight Show ... she took the prize hands down ... or perhaps that should be "pants down." And you thought your first date was embarrassing. Jay Leno's comment - - - - This gives a whole new meaning to being "****** off."


        • A wise old farmer went to town to buy a pickup truck that he saw advertised in the paper for a certain price. After telling the salesman which truck he wanted, they sat down to do the paperwork. The salesman handed the farmer the bill, and the farmer declared, "This isn't the price I saw!"

          The salesman went on to tell the wise old farmer how he was getting extras such as power brakes, power windows, special tires etc. and that was what took the price up. The farmer need the truck badly, paid the price and went home.

          A few months later, the salesman called up the farmer and said,

          "My son is in 4-H and he needs a cow for a project. Do you have any for sale?" The farmer said, "Yes, I have a few cows, and I would sell for $500.00 apiece.

          Come look at them and take your pick." The salesman said he and his son would be right out. After spending a few hours in the field
          checking out all the farmer's cows, the two decided on one and the salesman proceeded to write out a check for $500.00.

          The farmer said--------"Now, wait a minute, that's not the final price of the cow. You're getting extras with it and
          you have to pay for that too."

          "What extras?" asked the salesman.

          Below is the list the farmer gave the salesman for
          the final price of the cow..........

          BASIC COW...............................$500.00
          Two tone exterior........................$45.00

            • New Scientific Discovery.

              A major research institution has announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet know to science - "governmentium." It has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons and 111 assistant deputy neutrons for an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons that are further surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like sub particles called peons.

              Governmentium has no electrons and is therefore inert. It can be detected however since it impedes every reaction it comes into contact with. A tiny amount of governmentium can take a reaction that normally occurs in seconds and slow it to the point where it take days.

              Governmentium has a normal half life of three years. It doesn't decay but "re- organizes", a process where assistant deputy neutrons and deputy neutrons change places. This process actually causes it to grow as in the confusion some morons become neutrons, thereby forming isodopes.

              This phenomenon of "moron promotion" has led to some speculation that governmentium forms whenever sufficient morons meet in concentration forming critical morass. Researches believe that in Governmentium, the more you re- organize, the morass you cover.

                    Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
                    A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster.Want to live longer? Take a nap.

                    Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
                    A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these? Veget ables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products.

                    Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
                    A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

                    Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
                    A: Well, if you have a body and you have body fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

                    Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regu lar exercise program?
                    A: Can't think of a single one, sorry. It may allow you six more months in a nursing home in diapers. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good

                    Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
                    A: HELLO! YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!. Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?

                    Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
                    A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

                    Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
                    A: Are you crazy? HELLO ... Cocoa beans--another vegetable!!! It's the best feel-good food around!

                    Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
                    A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

                    Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
                    A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

                    Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets and remember, Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - straw berries in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming - WOO HOO! What a Ride!"


                    • After every flight, Qantas pilots fill out a form, called a "gripe
                      sheet," which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems, document their repairs on the form,and then

                        • A man once spent days looking for his new hat. Finally, he decided that he'd go to church on Sunday and sit at the back. During the service he would sneak out and grab a hat from the rack at the front door.
                          On Sunday, he went to church and sat at the back. The sermon was about the Ten Commandments. He sat through the whole sermon, and instead of sneaking out he waited until the sermon was over and went to talk to the minister.

                          "Father, I came here today to steal a hat to replace the one I lost. But after hearing your sermon on the Ten Commandments, I changed my mind."

                          The minister said, "Bless you, my son. Was it when I started to preach 'Thou shall not steal' that you had a change of heart?"

                          The man responded, "No, it was the one about adultery. When you started to preach about that, I remembered where I left my hat."

                            • A guy was sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife walked up behind him and whacked him on the head with a magazine.

                              "What was that for?" he asked.

                              "That was for the piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name Laura Lou written on it," she replied.

                              "Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Laura Lou was the name of one of the horses I bet on," he explained.

                              "Oh, honey, I'm sorry," she said. "I should have known there was a good explanation."

                              When he came to, he asked, "What the heck was that for?"

                              She replied, "Your horse called."
