Lighten Up! Business Humor To Cure What Ails You
After a take-no-prisoners week of working our @$$es off, I believe a little humor is in order. We’ve earned it, right?
And according to the Mayo Clinic, laughter brings both short-term and long-term stress-relief benefits including:
- Increasing oxygen flow to vital organs.
- Releasing stress-squashing endorphins.
- Facilitating muscle relaxation.
- Boosting immunity.
- Easing physical pain.
- Decreasing depression.
All the more reason to take some time out for a good belly laugh. And where better to go for one than the creative satire of The Onion?
Here are a few gems from “America’s Finest News Source” (in no particular order of hilarity) that poke fun at work and business.
I hope you’ll find them as therapeutic as I do:

I feel better already, how about you?
Now get back to work!
