Flashprank Friday

We have already posted a blog on office furniture pranks, at last somebody seems to be taking us seriously! Comedy Central, who are broadcasting The Office, have recently conducted a survey on fun in the workplace and found these rather surprising results:

Comeday Central
Comeday Central
  • office laughter levels have dropped by 50%

  • 1 in 2 of us are too scared to share jokes for fear of recrimination from the boss

  • 1 in 5 say they never crack a smile during a working day

  • 14% have stopped talking to colleagues for fear of being thought of as lazy

  • Practical jokes have dropped by 66%

It seems that the effects of the credit crunch are more far-reaching than we first thought. Continue reading Flashprank Friday

Claysons corner volume 5

Supposedly all of the stories below are true, and if so then prepare to be amazed and educated at the same time. Having said that, they were sent to us by Jon Clayson of Hunters Estate Agents, so jump to your own conclusions.

So, did you know :-

Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell, so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odour. Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, Don’t throw the baby out with the Bath water..

Claysons corner volume 4

We received this list of  one liners from our reliable source of office humour, Jon Clayson of Hunters Estate Agents in West Sussex.  Although they may not be Tommy Cooper originals, they are in his style and we list them here as a tribute to a great comedian :-

I met this bloke with a didgeridoo and he was playing Dancing Queen on it. I thought, ‘That’s Aboriginal.’
This lorry full of tortoises collided with a van full of terrapins. It was a turtle disaster.
I told my girlfriend I had a job in a bowling alley. She said ‘Tenpin?’ I said, ‘No, permanent.’
I went in to a pet shop. I said, ‘Can I buy a goldfish?’ The guy said, ‘Do you want an aquarium?’ I said, ‘I don’t care what star sign it is.’

9 Ways to Pimp Your Cubicle

9 Ways to Pimp Your Office

Most of us spend our days in a drab cubicle, with grey walls, grey chairs, grey walls outside those cubicle walls, grey lighting, grey computer, and you probably sit in grey building in your grey suit (or “business casual” derivative). Ahh, whoever thought up office design in the 1980s must have really been of fan of grey and consequently has been the staple of office design since then.

However, a few companies are breaking the trend, some of them are downright weird, some of them look awesome. Take for example this:

home, sweet, home
home, sweet, home

This insidious device is the standard office chair, probably the same chair that you’re sitting on right now, day after day, year after year. However, other companies are trying to change that and spice things up a little. From getting you to exercise to just plain weird, I bring you: “The Top Most amazing/weirdest chairs to help pimp out Your office”. (I’m one for short and concise titles)
