Corporate comedy? Microsoft’s official guide to humour.
A few years back I had a friend who claimed her employer was been working on list of officially-sanctioned jokes to be used with clients, a notion so bizarre I was never quite sure whether to believe it or not. Now, via Holy Kaw, comes the revelation that Microsoft has not only formalised the use of humour in the workplace, they’ve come up with a ranking system. Which is hilarious in itself, but only slight less hilarious than the total lack of irony on the part of those who created it.
