I realize this issue’s headline is juvenile and in it for a cheap laugh, but then again, so am I. Enjoy:

Sneezing
Sneezing feels pretty good and it might be because it may (people go back and forth on this one) kill brain cells every time you do it. But before you invest in an extra-large box of pepper, remember the risks – like blowing snot all over your upper lip.

Phone Interviews (A Summary)
Human Resources: Is it still a good time for me to judge your ability to do this job based on your answers to canned questions that have absolutely nothing to do with your work? Me: Yes. HR: You failed.

The Unemployment Beard
Looking for growth during this recession? Check out an unemployed man’s and (in some unfortunate cases) woman’s face. As soon as the work stops, so does the shaving. It’s so prevalent that the number of growing beards could be an economic indicator. Let’s call it, The Follicle Factor.

Exclamation Points
Used once in a while to set off a phrase or thought exclamation points do have value! But multiple exclamation points in the same paragraph (or even sentence), are marks of an amateur scribe!!!! They tell readers that either you do not know how to build excitement with words, you are (personally) absolutely thrilled about something or that you are an asshole!!!!!

James Brown
I have a theory that whenever James Brown is on everyone in the place will dance…at least a little. I don’t care if it’s a couple of head-swivels, finger snaps or pelvic thrusts, people are compelled to move when it comes to the funkitude of tracks like “I Feel Good,” “Licking Stick” and “I Got The Feelin’.”

Look for more trouble in a couple weeks.
