There is a dangerous virus being passed electronically, orally and by hand.

This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational-Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from any of your colleagues, your boss or anyone else via any means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely.

If you should come into contact with WORK put your jacket on and take 2 good friends to the nearest pub. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolator-Neutralizer-Extractor (WINE). The quickest acting WINE type is called Swift-Hitting-Infiltrator-Remover-All-Zones (SHIRAZ) but this is only available for those who can afford it. The next best equivalent is Cheapest-Available-System-Killer (CASK). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

Tell this warning to 5 friends. If you do not have 5 friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life. This virus is Destroying-Every-Available-Decent-Living-Youngster(DEADLY).

Update 22.08.2005: After extensive testing it has been concluded that Best-Equivalent-Extractor-Remedy (BEER) may be substituted for WINE but may require a more generous application. Another substitution, proven to work, is Theraphy-Procedure(TP).

Bravo, Hein! I am definitely cutting and pasteing this one to my e-mail list. Just what I needed to read after a long day of Wearly-Obtaining-Recreational-Kickback WORK.

No one ever lays on their death bed wishing they had spent more time at work.....

I don't have colleagues, nor a boss (other than myself), but I haven't been taking any chances either. I have been stock piling the antidotes and self-medicating for quite some time now. They seem to be very effective. I also think this one may be useful too: Management And Responsibility Tedium-Inhibiting, Non-Conformity Initiating Solution (MARTINIS) It's a clear solution and available in a variety of strengths (and flavors).

There is also the quick-fix antidote - Relegating (to) Underling Maneuver (RUM).
