Chestnuts roasting on an open fax

It’s holiday party week. Right now someone’s bra is on fire while they’re punching a drunk middle-manager in a Santa hat and the temps are loading video of it onto youtube.  Maybe not right now, but this is the one week of the year when that scenario is five times more likely to occur in any cubicle above 14th street or below Houston.  The village is safe… for now (see: Halloween).

Mahalo.com has some useless tips like: “Consider hiring entertainment such as a DJ to break up the awkward moments.” Mahalo.com, there are few things that will create more awkward moments than the DJ (see: little kicks! ) You obviously have no idea what you’re talking about, Mahalo.com, so I’m taking control of this situation as of five minutes ago.

Stay tuned for more Holiday tips.
