Internal Memo for Wednesday, 5/8/19

Happy Met Gala, poors! Who are you wearing today?

Oh, this old thing? It’s my aunt. She died last year.

BUSINESS.

A chartered Boeing 737 from Guantánamo Bay, Cuba slid off a Jacksonville runway last Friday, injuring 21. The pilots were said to be severely sleep deprived.

Soldiers in Benin last week fired on protesters following the country’s contentious parliamentary elections. Donald Trump has since tweeted his condolences to the country of Africa.

Anna from Finance, you be Meghan Markle, I’ll be the royal baby. I’m hungry!

Adele and husband Simon Konecki have split, reportedly at the behest of her label.

Intrepid viewers of last week’s episode of Game of Thrones noticed what appeared to be a Starbucks coffee cup in one of the shots, leading to speculation that the show’s producers will soon introduce Howard Schultz as a reasonable, centrist choice for the Iron Throne.

Jerry, that wasn’t Edie Falco.

Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that 2 years of his presidency were “stollen.” He then boasted that the next two would be “strudel, if not full Linzer torte!”

A shark found in the waters near Greenland last year may have been alive for over 400 years. Scientists were stunned that the United States existed for 240 of those years before jumping it.

Next time you go to the bathroom, smile- you’re on camera! After a rash of indiscriminate toilet paper theft, we’ve outfitted all on-campus facilities with state-of-the-art Japanese Zooirushi “Skippy Happy Bum Bum!” toilets. They see (and feel) all!

Since its inception last July, NASA’s newest mission, TESS, has discovered over 1,800 stars that could support habitable planets. Researchers have not yet found any such planets because they no longer remember what one looks like.

New York mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to announce his candidacy for president sometime this week. Aides say he will trumpet his signature progressive achievement: having mixed-race children.

Remember: wealth is a mysteriously accumulated and politically immutable force that must be displayed once a year, ostentatiously, at the celebration of a purely aesthetic nonprofit.

Internal Memo for Wednesday, 4/5/17

Good Morning,

Well, fuck it, I tried.  I did absolutely everything I could to make this company profitable and give back to the shareholders and fuck over everyone who doesn’t work for us and enrich myself greatly by quasi-legal means.  And what did I get in return?  The Syrian government is killing children with chemical weapons and North Korea is firing ballistic missiles at Japan.  Meanwhile, the United States has a real estate shyster and the head of a fossil fuel company doing diplomacy.  Oh, and did I mention that at least one of those two DIDN’T WANT THE FUCKING JOB IN THE FIRST PLACE?  Now it’s only a matter of time before every single one of us is incinerated in the greatest extinction event since the dinosaurs.  WHICH EXISTED, MIKE PENCE.  JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.

It is with a heavy heart that I present to you what may very well be the last business of our lives.

A new study indicates that playing a single game of Tetris can reduce the effects of PTSD.  And increase the effects of TSD.

New York design firm Clouds Architecture Office has drafted plans for a skyscraper that would orbit the Earth while hanging from an asteroid.  The structure is being marketed as the perfect place for those who “don’t want to close their eyes, don’t want to fall asleep.”

Congratulations, Anna from HR.  I’m glad you finally graduated from community college in time to die.

A missing Indonesian man was recently found dead in the belly of a giant python.  To clarify, the man was Chinese, but the python’s name was Donesia.

The number of heroin users in the United States has increased fivefold.  And that’s just since November.

Jerry, do whatever the fuck you want.

A new company is matching up people with opposite political views over free Starbucks coffee, in the hopes that they can at least agree it tastes burnt.

Following its successful launch of a recycled rocket booster, Elon Musk’s company SpaceX is currently hiring 473 positions.  The only necessary qualification is an ability to be talked down to.

Who wants scones?  Enjoy your last indulgence before our fiery apocalypse- Conference Room C.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to close famed prison complex Rikers Island.  In response, HBO is suspending original content development indefinitely.

The Coastal Carolina University cheerleading squad has been suspended pending an investigation into alleged prostitution.  Some of the school’s sports teams reportedly became suspicious when the cheerleaders’ only chant was “Give me a D!”

You know what I’ll miss most?  Apples.

Bet you didn’t see that one coming.

Internal Memo for Wednesday, 4/2/14

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I was not amused by the amount of celebration surrounding my recent April Fools’ joke.  I would like to think my death would have been met with sincere mourning and solemn tribute.  In the event of my actual death, please consider exhibiting a little more respect.  Thank you.  Now, as I am a living, breathing human being with feelings, I will now proceed with the business.

Two Spanish historians claim to have found the Holy Grail.  Much to the chagrin of their neighbors, however, they still have not found Jesus.

New York Mets fans booed recently elected Mayor Bill De Blasio Monday when he threw out the first pitch at the team’s opener.  “I knew it,” said De Blasio, “I shouldn’t have worn the Mets jersey.”

Russian troops have massed on the country’s border with Ukraine, and could invade within 12 hours of being given an order.  The invasion could be delayed further, however, if a lot of people happen to be using Russia’s DSL.

What’s that smell?  It’s Anna from marketing, who has gone vegan!  Please be supportive.

The Supreme Court has struck down limits on how much individuals can donate to political candidates.  “This is an historic day,” said Justice Sonia Sotomayor, “it ensures that the American political system will continue to benefit the wealthy on both sides for years to come.”
 
According to court documents, the faulty ignition switches that killed 13 people and sparked a massive recall of GM vehicles cost a mere 90 cents apiece.  Get it?  Sparked?  Oh God, Cheryl, your son was one of those killed?  I’m sorry for your loss.  I had no idea.  I will retract my statement immediately.  I am deeply, deeply sorry.  Also, I will be giving you a raise.  Effective immediately.  Please do not sue me, or the company, we can work this out.  Cheryl?  Cheryl, where are you going?  Cheryl?  Don’t do this, Cheryl… I said I was sorry!

No, Jerry, I still don’t see the Virgin Mary in your waffle fry.
 
A Long Island high school student has been accepted into all eight Ivy League colleges.  “I would like to thank my parents,” said 17-year-old Kwasi Enin, “my teachers, and, most importantly, my race.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s divorce from his wife, Lyudmila, has been finalized.  “I will kill her, yes,” said a “devastated” Putin in a statement.  “Hopefully soon.”

I would like to apologize for my earlier insensitive comments regarding the recent GM recall.  I would like to “recall” them, if you will.  WAIT, CHERYL, COME BACK.

An 8.2-magnitude earthquake hit Chile Tuesday, precipitating a massive escape from a women’s prison.  The earthquake is widely believed to be a publicity stunt for the upcoming season of “Naranja Es El Nuevo Negro,” premiering this Sábado on ¡El Netflix!.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has approved the country’s first minimum wage, set at €8.50 an hour.  The move has sparked outrage from fellow EU member Greece, which, according to President Karolos Papoulias, “would kill for that kind of dough.”

It’s baseball season, kiddos… get out there and take some steroids!
