These should be on office motivation posters

If you can stay calm, while all around you is chaos…then you probably haven’t completely understood the seriousness of the situation.

Doing a job RIGHT the first time gets the job done. Doing the job WRONG fourteen times gives you job security.

Eagles may soar, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines.

Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity.

Plagiarism saves time.

Never put off until tomorrow what you can avoid altogether.

TEAMWORK…means never having to take all the blame yourself.

Rome did not create a great empire by having meetings, they did it by killing all those who opposed them.

The beatings will continue until morale improves.

If at first you don’t succeed, try management.

A person who smiles in the face of adversity probably has a scapegoat.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups.

We waste time so you don’t have to.

Hang in there, retirement is only thirty years away!

Go the extra mile. It makes your boss look like an incompetent slacker.

A snooze button is a poor substitute for no alarm clock at all.

When the going gets tough, the tough take a coffee break.


Succeed in spite of management.

Aim Low, Reach Your Goals, Avoid Disappointment.

Whipping Santa: Klausjagen Festival

Where it's at

This Yuletide, on the shores of picturesque Lake Lucerne, Switzerland in the quaint town of Kussnacht, something very strange is afoot. Held on the 5th of December every year, the eve of St. Nicholas' Day, the Klausjagen is truly one of the weirdest festivals in Switzerland, a nation usually renowned for its restraint. Klausjagen literally means 'chasing the Klaus' and the festival is believed to have sprung from an age-old tradition to chase away evil spirits. The way good ol' Santa got implicated into this celebration however, is not as clear.

What happens at Klausjagen

The festivities only begin after sunset but the villagers are already busy preparing for several days beforehand. The 'iffele' craftsmen are the busiest, putting the finishing touches to creating huge paper bishop hat lanterns lit inside with candles, which are a highlight of the festival.

The sun sets and the street lights go out, engulfing the crowd in utter darkness… then from a distance you can hear the sound of giant cracking whips (up to 8ft in length) as sharp as gun shots filling the air, signalling the start of the procession. The iffele lantern bearers follow, carried by some 150 men, casting a glow on the darkened streets. St Nicolas follows, accompanied by four dark elves disguised as chimney sweeps, representing the darker sides of life, accompanied by the cheer of the crowd and in hot pursuit follows a brass band.

Then the fun really begins. Some 700 men dressed in traditional farmers shirts carry alpine cow bells, rung in a cacophonic unison. Next comes 180 horn blowers, create enough noise to stir the dead. The procession last around 2 hours and spectators who have overcome the constant ringing in their ears are welcome to join in.

Next the feasting begins, with crowds hopping from restaurant to restaurant, indulging in tasty meat, sauerkraut and potatoes.

What a cold and fowl act!

YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Police said an Ypsilanti man is accused of stabbing his mother with a fork and hitting another woman over the head with a frozen chicken.

Frederick McKaney, 40, was arraigned in a Jackson courtroom on Thursday on two felony assault charges, one count of assault and battery and one count of resisting an officer.

"He stabbed his mother in the back of the neck when she refused to give him money, and then, an hour later, he attacked a neighbor woman with a chicken," Jackson County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Mark Blumer told the Ann Arbor news.

Police said McKaney went to his mother's house and demanded money. When she refused, he stabbed her and took off on his bicycle, police said.

A short time later, he encountered two other women talking on the sidewalk on Woodbridge Street.

The woman said he said something nasty to them and hit one of them over the head with 10 pounds of frozen chicken.

The woman went to the hospital and got stitches in her head.

McKaney's mother suffered minor injuries from the stabbing.
