My entire team called in sick this morning - all leaving txts or voicemails on our manager's mobile.... then when we saw him approach the building we turned our monitors off and hid.

BlueShift: Apparently The Edge radio station ran all their programming 10 minutes early - so the 8am news came on at 7:50 - to freak out people listening on the car radios on the way to work.


All it did was make them seem like idiots they couldn't tell the time between them.
Telling the time is not the issue or the only reason!!




Procrastination eventually pays off.

People still do this?


Apparently so. A workmate who has a radio on as background noise at his desk told me. I haven't deliberately listened to a radio in months, maybe longer. (My clock radio alarm doesn't count - it only goes for as long as it takes for me to hit snooze, I tune it to the station with the most annoying DJ voices)

An old one but a good one. 

I seem to have caught a few people with my OTT tattoo thread on this forum.  I ran the same gag on two FB groups, but they have not sussed the date yet.

PetaPixel ran this story on Sunday, and I am sure it was an April Fool's that went out early.  The image shows the result of eye-drops extracted from deep sea fish, and supposedly allowed this man to see fine print from yards away in total darkness.  I had it in mind to steal their idea using Photoshop's Liquify tool to bloat my pupils, but time has been tight today.

coffeebaron: Master filters are actually GCSB listening devices.


Ah, your were after actual jokes, sorry.


If this were the case we wouldn't have so many problems with people having wiring issues.




Please note: I have a professional bias towards Vodafone.
