Waking up on Monday morning with nothing to look forward to but corporate speak and lower back pain is enough to make anyone want to kidnap the fax machine and smash it out of it's misery à la 'Office Space'. Wes of The Gentleman's Armchair has created some sad but true comics to take the edge off. So take a coffee break and read through these work related web comics for a quick pick-me-up before getting back to the grindstone.
ISIS has come to be known as a terrorist group but before that Isis was an Egyptian goddess who brought her brother/husband Osiris back to life after he was murdered. It's also the name of a five-year-old Australian girl who really wants her name on a jar of Nutella.
The company Ferrero Australia started a campaign called “Make Me Yours” which allowed people to add their names to jars of Nutella. Allowing the internet to brand your product went predictably wrong. Department stores, such as the Meyer Isis's mom tried to buy from, are unable to print everything submitted. It might have something to do with gems like this one:
For the mom of this little girl, being denied a personalized jar of sweet, hazelnut chocolate spread is the last straw in a long line of unforseen consequences cause by the unfortunate name. She told the Sydney Morning Herald, "I am starting to get to the point where I don't want to call her name out because she's going to start noticing people looking."
Now she's on a mission to reclaim the name.
