Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Let's face it, sometimes in life, there are moments and then there are "KOKAK® moments". Yesterday afternoon, I peeked in to see if Bud was still napping, and yep---sure 'nuff he was. And Winnie the Pood (pood rhymes with good) was too. The two of us call our cat Winston, Winnie the Pood, sometimes, after Winnie the Pooh of course. But, hey, I digress...that's not the point of this whole shebang here. It's the position of our Winnie's napping!!

But really, he brings forth a whole new meaning of "zonked-out".

I urgently needed a few days off work, But, I knew the boss would not allow me to take leave. I thought that maybe if I acted crazy Then he would tell me to take a few days off. So, I hung upside-down on the ceiling and made funny noises.

My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, so that the boss might think I was crazy and give me a few days off.

A few minutes later the boss came into the office and asked, "What are you doing?" I told him I was a light bulb. He said, "You are clearly stressed out." "Go home and recuperate for a couple of days."

I jumped down and walked out of the office... When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, the boss asked her, "...And where do you think you're going?!"

She said, "I'm going home too, I can't work in the dark!!"
