-- Being old, having a very long neck, and no brain is cool (especially if you’re a “wet one” who has no compelling need for dry diapers).

-- But, stay away from folks with fins, a high-velocity squirt gun, and underwater breathing apparatus (if you value your life or want to get intorepparttar Guinness Book of World Records for Longevity).

-- Telling everyone you went to school with “Tonyrepparttar 135202 Tuna” won’t win you any brownie points (because brownies don’t live inrepparttar 135203 sea silly); so fess up…admit you haven’t got a clue who Neptune is, better yet “clam up” and behave yourself.

-- Do stop fretting about your lack of talent, skills, or business acumen, because ifrepparttar 135204 only thing you've mastered is how to suck and spit, you’ve either gotrepparttar 135205 makings of a first class slob (or else you’re a genuine geoduck)!

-- Since you’ve always fancied yourself a bit of a catch or a fine delicacy, you'll be heartened to know that in China they adore your tasty flesh in soup, in a hot pot, or fresh with a bit of tangy sauce (what a relief -- no more wimpy fries, calorie-laden burgers, or chocolate milk shakes for you)!

Just remember -- smile and whatever you do -- refrain from drenching this melting moment in ketchup please!!

Why It Pays to Out More Humor in the Workplace

9. Humor promotes happiness and joy. It's good to be alive.

10. Quality relationships are measured byrepparttar amount of laughter present. When relationships are good, people laugh a lot. The same applies to businesses. When employees enjoy one another and laugh easily and often, we see performance improve and profits increase.

11. The humor I speak of here must never be based on laughing at someone, racism, sexism, put downs, sarcasm or ridicule. These forms of humor are destructive attempts at making one look good by making another look and feel badly. There is enough good humor to last a lifetime. Just look for it.
