Internal Memo for Wednesday, 1/29/14

Morning, Grammy snubs.  Let’s get right to the business.

President Obama delivered his fifth State of the Union address last night to multiple standing ovations.  The constant clapping has been hailed as the most left-right coordination the capital has seen in decades.

At one point during his speech, the President said, “I believe when women succeed, America succeeds.”  The subsequent applause was drowned out by the sound of several Founding Fathers turning over in their graves.

An elderly Florida man has been arrested for allegedly masturbating in a McDonald’s parking lot.  As a result, the fast food chain is revisiting its one honey mustard policy.

According to documents leaked by Edward Snowden, the NSA has been collecting Americans’ personal data through the popular game “Angry Birds.”  “It’s not rocket science, people,” said NSA head General Keith Alexander, “the object of the game is to kill all the pigs.”

It’s awards season, everybody, so why not bone up on your pop culture knowledge ON YOUR OWN TIME.  Just another friendly reminder that we monitor all Internet activity here at the office.

$9.84 charges have been appearing on credit and debit card statements worldwide in what could be a massive scam.  However, it could also be an incredible investment opportunity!  Click here to learn more!

Two Seattle Seahawks fans have named their daughter “Cydnee Leigh 12th Mann” after the team’s nickname for its fan base.  This marks the first time a child has been named after a team’s fans since 2012, when two Philadelphia Eagles supporters welcomed baby “Vincent Randall Asshole Wallace.”

Happy hump day, everyone.  I’ve decided to start sending this memo on Wednesdays in the hopes of boosting morale midweek.  Has it worked so far?  I say yes!  Now get back to work you maggots!

Afternoon, dumbwaiters.  What can you silently deliver the company today?

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, already in hot water for a controversial “traffic study” during his tenure, is being investigated for misuse of federal funds after Hurricane Sandy.  “Is the president leading the investigation?” asked Christie, “because he knows a thing or two about misuse of federal funds.”

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has been suspended for the entire 2014 season for his use of performance-enhancing drugs.  This is baseball’s longest ban since Honus Wagner’s 242-game suspension in 1899 for “repeated and willful failure to wear suspenders.”

Germany has fined some of its major breweries 106 million, or $145 million, for a price-fixing scandal that raised beer prices almost industry-wide in 2008.  “This is our Wolf of Wall Street,” said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

A Dublin man was stabbed to death Sunday night after performing an illegal chess move.  One eyewitness said, “It was the most disturbing thing I have ever seen.  I mean, who tries to castle out of check?”

Internal Memo for Wednesday, 1/8/14

Hellooooooo, my little Pop-Tarts.  I know what you’re thinking: “A Wednesday memo?  What gives?”  Well, as some of you know, the holidays are my favorite time of year, and I felt it necessary to take three and a half weeks off.  Think about it – Christmas, New Years, Epiphany, Boxing Day, Hanukkah usually – there’s a lot to celebrate during our long December.  Plus, there’s reason to believe.  Onto the business!

A high school student in Georgia has been suspended one year for hugging a teacher.  Sam McNair, 17, has released a statement reading, “If she didn’t want a hug, she shouldn’t have worn her hair in that tight bun.”

Two pandas born at an Atlanta zoo in July were inaccurately classified as males.  It was recently determined that Mei Lun and Mei Huan were females after they went several months without masturbating.

Chinese doctors saved a Chinese factory worker’s severed hand by attaching it to his calf until the man’s arm healed.  Senate democrats are calling it a major victory for Obamacare.

Jerry, I asked you to do one thing while I was gone.  ONE THING, JERRY.

The London Metropolitan Police has determined that there is no credibility to rumors that Princess Diana was murdered by the British military.  The two branches of government then shook hands, said “Right-o,” and sat down to afternoon tea.

Canada’s Flare Magazine has come under fire recently for its heavily airbrushed June 2011 cover photo of actress Jennifer Lawrence.  The charming Lawrence has laughed off the controversy, saying, “It’s Canada- who gives a fuck?”

No foreigners have been granted Belgian citizenship since a January 1st, 2013 law that requires applicants to “have shown, or be able to show, outstanding services to Belgium in fields such as science, sport or culture.”  The law is what the Belgians call a “Prise Vingt-Deux.”

And the winner for best New Year’s resolution is… ANNA IN LEGAL.  I have complete confidence that you’ll be able to stop that civil war in South Sudan without taking a single day off from work.

Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe claims he was cut because of his outspoken support of marriage equality.  Vikings owner Zygi Wilf has denied the allegations, stating, “I don’t care who you are or what you do, just so long as you do your job and buy tickets.  Fill the whole stadium up with gays for all I care.  Just don’t let ‘em kiss.  That’s gross.”

Eight inmates in a Utah prison have taken ill after drinking homemade wine tainted with botulism.  Worth it.

A University of Georgia study has concluded that frozen vegetables may be more nutritious than fresh ones.  Updating a previous item, the University of Georgia is still primarily known for its football team.

INTERACTIVE CONTENT: There’s another masturbation joke at the end of this email- can you spot it?

An original painting by George Zimmerman sold for over $100,000 on eBay.  The painting is titled If I Did It.
