Work Place Humor on the Web
By Cornelia Amiri

With out-sourcing, lower pay, and a weak economy the working class
need a few good laughs. Here are six sties on job related humor
including some silly dragons and an IT rep who installs love.

1. The Humor of Melvin Durai
   ***
Three stars for tongue and cheek humor on a customer's view of
outsourcing call centers. With insightful humor such as "willing to
work for peanuts. Even better, they're willing to work for rupees."
http://www.melvindurai.com/callcenter.htm

2. Madeline Begun Kane, Humor Columnist
   ***
Three stars for a well formatted site with Madeline Kane's perky
photo on the right hand side and a scroll down menu on the left.
Working Stiffed, and Workplace Squeeze are two of my favorite, I can
relate all to well. AWOL Jobs is timely poem of political humor
about outsourcing and projected employment numbers.
http://www.madkane.com/work.html

3. Fry's Electronics Employment Application
   ****
Four stars for a hilarious application for a customer service
representative. Complete with wry and witty questions like: "Are you
computer literate? Can you: Program your VCR? Use an ATM? Use a
remote channel changer? Flush a toilet without assistance? As well
as "Expected salary: $4.85/hr $5.00/hr $5.15/hr $6.00/hr* *Your
Masters is in____ ."
http://braith.best.vwh.net/frys.htm

4. Office Memos – Restroom use Policy
   ****
Four stars for a one page, outrageous office memo outlining the new "Restroom Trip Policy." "Established to provide a more consistent method of accounting for each employee's restroom time and ensuring equal treatment of all employees." It gives call center representatives a chance to laugh instead of cry.
http://www.tech-sol.net/humor/memos1.htm


5. Burger Drac's
   ****
Four stars for a look at Customer Service at a dragon owned hamburger
joint. Underneath the Burger Drac logo is a menu of cartoons
illustrating a Dragon's take on "The Customer is Always Right", "No
Smoking", "Service with a Smile", and "Friendly Service."

6. Installing Love
   ****
Four stars for darling dialogue between a user and help desk
technician on how to install love. "The first step is to open your
HEART. Have you located your HEART ma'am?"
