That's the subject line of an email I almost sent a few minutes ago. Luckily, I had a few things going in my favor:

  1. I managed to actually proofread the subject line before sending. This is odd because I almost never do that--especially this early in the day.
  2. I was sending it to the small team I'm part of at work--a team with a very good[*] sense of humor.
  3. It's Friday and there's a good chance that several folks would have read right past it, expecting to see a "WFH" (working from home) message. It's fairly common for folks to work remotely on Friday if there are no face to face meetings on the calendar.

None of that stopped me from laughing really hard before fixing it and then hitting Send.

Anyway, if you were expecting something more "WTF" in this post, I suggest you read Sex Baiting Prank on Craigslist Affects Hundreds. If that doesn't make you say "WTF" today, I'm not sure what will.

[*] I desperately want to pass along an incredibly funny line from a meeting we had the other day, but I can't manage to remember the whole thing. So let's just say that it revolved around the phrase "Dan stole the marker and I planted a fart in the cushion..."

Happy Friday.

Since it's WTF Friday, I thought I'd mention the new-and-improved Matt Cutts Doll, complete with a Yahoo! shirt, Jesus outfit, and "Search Me" spanky pants (sorry for that one).

Take care!

That reminds me of a workplace story -- I am employed at a company that shall remain nameless, but we had a state-level contract with Virginia and had a web product virtually moments from being pushed to the production site when someone noticed that the fancy, much-touted, thoroughly reviewed graphic banner was missing a letter: "Virgina". (Better yet, this site was aimed at adolescents, who would have had a field day with it.) Oops! A round of kudos to people who take that one last look!
