    • That would never fly in this place. They want their pound of flesh and would never dream of letting anyone go before they’ve finished working their notice period.


  1. Wait one darn minute. They can’t sever you! The Flying Spaghetti monster will tear them to pieces.

    Come to Philadelphia. The US wants you. We’re not insane and twisted enough. We want a little Kick. (Kyk?)

  2. Ah, the elusive severance package. No matter how many times I’ve asked, it’s always, “Not for you.” I can’t win the lottery either.

    To quote that cheeseball band Semi-Sonic, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” Always look on the bright side dude.
