My Desk is Killing Me

A study recently released by the Mayo Clinic states that sitting for prolonged periods of time at work can be hazardous to your health, even if you are NOT operating heavy machinery. You thought that you were dying slowly because that guy in the cubicle next to you keeps talking about the Renaissance Fair he went to over the weekend, but this is not the case. Your desk is actively working to give you diabetes, hormonal imbalance and cardiovascular dysfunction. While there is no easy solution, at least you have identified the enemy.


  1. I KNEW it!!!! Damn desk! I will be talking to HR tomorrow about replacing it.

  2. the cigarettes-like things but instead of paper there rolled in a tobacco leaf?

  3. In the meantime, you can try keeping it in line by hitting it with a stapler.

  4. wounds made by metal can lead to the disease commonly know as lock-jaw if not prevented by playing hours or Tetris.

    puncture wounds are the worst kinds of wounds, therefore: wounds made be metal when the wounds are the puncture type are very dangerous.

    DO NOT keeping anything but paper in line by hitting it with a stapler.

    that is probably the worst thing you could hit something with that is out of line.

    you wouldn't want your book put together all cock-eyed would you?
