Internal Memo for Wednesday, 10/31/18

Back from the dead… IT’S THE HALLOWEEN MEMO.

👻🎃🧟‍♀️

The pumpkins are carved, the children are costumed, and the candies are razorbladed, so LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED.

SPOOKY BUSINESS.

A new survey of millennials found that 57% would rather travel than have sex. 30% said they would rather have sex than travel, while 13% wrote that they “will work for food.”

The entirety of Lake Waitaki, an abandoned town in New Zealand, is for sale for $2.8 million. The remote town is being advertised as “the perfect location to hunt man for sport.”

And the winner of our 16th annual costume contest is… Anna from Maintenance! You ARE a slutty janitor!

British low-cost carrier EasyJet plans on introducing a fleet of battery-powered airplanes by 2030. Experts say EasyJet is the perfect airline to experiment with the high-risk aircraft, as many of its passengers “wouldn’t be missed.”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has referred a plot to pay a woman to make false claims of sexual assault against him to the FBI for investigation. Mueller got out in front of the potential claims this week, saying that the only person he’s ever wanted to fuck is Donald Trump.

For the love of god, Jerry, at least lose the bone saw.

A Florida woman who says she is Jewish has received death threats after decorating her lawn with a Halloween display depicting skeletons in a concentration camp as a means of protesting her homeowners association. “I know my history,” Susan Lamerton told local reporters Tuesday, “and Hitler’s HOA eventually caved.”

In other Florida news, the state’s Commission on Ethics has found that the mayor of a town near West Palm Beach promised a constituent he would erect speed bumps in exchange for sex. “This is nothing,” Mayor David Stewart said in a deposition. “You should see the price for a stoplight.”

BOO! Our Q3 numbers are SCAAAAARRRYYYY!! And that’s not a good thing.

Senator Lindsey Graham has said he will introduce legislation aimed at banning birthright citizenship after Donald Trump suggested drafting an executive order with the same goal. “The only thing that should determine your citizenship is your race,” Graham said in a recent statement. “Whoops.”

British scientists have taught dogs to diagnose malaria in patients by smelling their socks. “This is a very exciting development,” professor Steve Lindsay of Durham University told reporters, “one that will greatly increase diagnosis rates in areas with access to quality footwear and specially-bred dogs with hours upon hours of vigorous training by highly-skilled professionals.”

This Halloween, let us remember the less fortunate: the dead.

Internal Memo for Wednesday, 3/28/18

Huddle up benchwarmers,

The Final Four is almost upon us! What an exciting (and lucrative!) NCAA Tournament it has been. To replicate the exhilarating nature of this annual event, I’ve seeded all company employees, 1 – 4,096, in a heart-stopping, no-holds-barred, 12-round “Tournament of Productivity©”! Can you believe we have a perfect multiple of 64 employees? What carefully crafted layoffs…

Some of our first-round matchups are quite intriguing- we’ve got Travis from Accounting (a 5-seed) against Mildred the executive assistant (a 1,020-seed), Ghufran from our Pakistan office (a 327-seed) vs. Ruchika from our India office (a 698-seed- that one could go nuclear!), and a possible NAIL BITER between Anna from Sales (a 512-seed) and Anna from Biz Dev (a 513-seed). Then, of course, there’s me (the overall #1-seed) going up against Jerry (who barely squeaked in as the last 1,024-seed). Each matchup will last two hours, and whoever makes the most money for the company during that time wins.

Of course, no one will be compensated.

BUSINESS.

The National Rifle Association has acknowledged that it receives foreign donations, but insists that none of that money goes to election work. “I can promise you that absolutely no foreign money goes towards influencing elections” NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch told reporters Monday. “The bulk of it goes to slandering kids.”

A dog died last week while locked in an overhead bin on a United Airlines flight. The ASPCA has filed suit against the dog’s owners for flying United.

Congratulations, ANNA, on raising almost $200,000 at your annual benefit! Don’t forget, March is National Kidney Month!!

A Texas state representative has introduced a bill that would fine men $100 every time they masturbate. As a preemptive measure, Ted Cruz has left Twitter.

Coca-Cola will experiment with selling alcoholic beverages in Japan. The company’s first offering, “Coke Happy Tricky Fun Explode!”, is a proprietary mix of sake and aspartame.

Jerry, stop intimidating mothers in the parking lot.

Ben Affleck has admitted that his giant back tattoo of a phoenix, which the actor once said was faked for a movie, is real. The tattoo represents the Affleck family’s second-worst decision after Casey.

Two travelers who met on a Virgin Atlantic flight from London to Cancun were caught having sex in the airplane’s lavatory. The woman has been banned from all future flights on the airline, while the man has been given several forceful high-fives.

Third floor… WATCH OUT! Fumigating!

A former professional clown is running for Congress in South Carolina. If elected, Lindsey Graham will return to the House, where he served from 1995 to 2003.

The New York Yankees had planned to imprint players’ faces in beer foam during the upcoming baseball season before finding out doing so would violate league rules. Instead, the team will sell anatomically correct hot dogs.

NO BETTING.

… except on me.

Internal Memo for Wednesday, 1/17/18

Good morning discomfort pioneers,

Great news!  In the wake of the recent MAJOR TAX CUT, I have decided to give everyone a 401K!  AND I will match your first contribution up to $.3.  THAT IS NOT A TYPO!  You know what they say, a penny saved is a penny… BUSINESS.

Paula White, Pentecostal televangelist and spiritual adviser to Donald Trump, has encouraged people to send her their January salary or face punishment from God.  White claims the money will go directly to the almighty creator himself, who incurred massive debt last month fighting the war on Christmas.

Minnesota has been named the happiest state in America by personal finance website WalletHub.  In related news, Mississippi has been named the wealthiest state in America by Civil War blogger Beauregard Johnson III.

Congratulations to Anna from HR on opening the office’s first ever meditation room!  I’ve already “christened” it… twice 😉

JetBlue has begun hiring pilots with no experience necessary.  And it shows.

Lena Dunham has split from her boyfriend of five years, Bleachers lead singer Jack Antonoff.  Antonoff is reportedly “heartbroken,” while Dunham is reportedly “naked.”

Jerry, you did not just win HQ.

Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has registered her disdain for the #MeToo movement, saying, “Let’s not turn women into snowflakes.”  “Women should be viewed the same way as men,” Rice added. “They should be free to grope, to rape, and to fight in endless wars propagated by administrations captured by defense contractors and private security forces.”

Alana Evans, friend of pornographic actress Stormy Daniels – whom Donald Trump reportedly paid $130,000 for her silence regarding a 2006 sexual encounter – claims Trump chased Daniels around a hotel room “in his tighty-whities.”  Experts say Evans was referring to Trump’s underwear, though “tighty-whities” is also Trump’s nickname for his cabinet.

Tomorrow is our sixth annual office pun-off!  Or should I say, “office pun-off-ice”?  I’M-A GONNA WIN.

The same day that Walmart announced that it would be raising employees’ wages by $1 an hour due to the recent tax overhaul, the company also announced it would be closing 63 of its Sam’s Club locations.  Going forward, workers at those locations are expected to make almost as much as when they were employed.

Senator Lindsey Graham says he no longer believes Donald Trump is a “xenophobic, race-baiting religious bigot.”  “I now realize,” Graham added, “that he is so much worse.”

Find a penny, pick it up… and turn it in to Accounting IMMEDIATELY.
