Something I thought was funny...

I ran across this website today: lastminute.com

It's a travel deal site with last minute deals...go figure.

But...the funny part is this. When you go to this site and are browsing for "deals" there is a link in small print in the top right-hand corner of the home page that says, "boss is watching, look busy"...If you click on it, it immediately pops up this pie chart graph with all these "work related" type graphs, etc....so that IF the boss is walking by and you're perusing the Lastminute.com site he will ACTUALLY think you're working.

Does anyone else find the humor in this? I thought it was pretty freakin creative. Funny too!


P.S. Gingerbread house pic's tomorrow.

I think it is funny...because it is something I would actually do...when I worked at Walk The Talk Company.

HILARIOUS!! I just checked that out. Two things I love: Travel and Hilarity! I may have to steal this link and put it on my blog too!!

www.dilbert.com use to have that "look busy" link too but I can not find it now.

Also, several video games used to have this. CNTRL+B was "The Boss Key", you could be making your treacherous way through a Nazi dungeon with nothing but your underwear and a knife then CNTRL+B, bam! You had spread sheets on your desktop!

yep. i love those options on websites. I always click over to MS Excel or word when I'm playing online.

There used to be a website called
ishouldbeworking.com with games and jokes on it, and it had a button on it like that.


PS- I want to blog about the pendants, but I'm waiting until after my friends get their gifts, because I don't want to spoil the surprise! I'll link back to you, is that ok?
