I have found it. The perfect contest for the miserable office worker. Acco Brands is sponsoring America’s Ugliest Office. Enter at www.americasugliestoffice.com and you have a shot at either a 42” HDTV, or a TRIP TO HAWAII. Talk about bringing hope to the downtrodden! One mock-up of an ugly office has the chair doubling as a toilet, so you never have to leave. Nice. The contest runs through Nov. 30, and, so far, Jerry’s home office in Columbus gets my vote. It may be small, but it's ugly.
By the way, what is Acco Brands? Why, it’s the company behind WilsonJones, “the creator of the three-ring binder,” along with Swingline staplers, the pre-BlackBerry DayTimer (I think Guy Adami still uses one of those), and even LAMINATORS. These people are the reason your office is ugly. Isn’t it obvious? Speaking of obvious…
MORE EXPENSIVE RESEARCH WHICH TELLS US WHAT WE ALREADY
From Indiana University: men choose a mate based on looks, women choose a mate based on security. DUH. This research was actually based on a speed-dating session in Germany. We had to go to Germany for this? I suspect it was an excuse to time the “research” with Oktoberfest. Your grant money dollars at work.
