Happy International Fun at Work Day!

1 Apr

April 1—This almost seems too easy.  Of course it’s April Fool’s Day—play a joke on your room mates or set the clocks back an hour.  My best prank ever was waking up at 3 am with a friend to saran wrap the boy’s toilets on the floor above us in our college dorm.  Unfortunately, the cleaning lady got to them before the boys and our handy-work was destroyed.

But this blog promises new information.  In addition to being April Fool’s Day, April 1 is also International Fun at Work Day.

Here are some suggestions on how to have more fun at work.

1)      Since it is Friday, play Rebecca Black’s “Friday” on repeat at full volume starting at 9am.  This is fun because someone will probably yell at you to get out, at which point you can go home and start really enjoying your day.

2)      Instead of a professional greeting, answer your phone by saying “Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?”

3)      Make the perfect paper airplane.

4)      Combine the two holidays and play funny pranks on your co-workers, but probably not your boss.

5)      If you’re really dedicated to fun in the workplace, organize an Office Olympics like Jim did in this clip from The Office: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcUREXClvHE
