Bing on humor in the workplace

'And stop sending me email about penis enlargement, Santos.'

“In a world where nothing is funny, humor is powerful. First, it’s the medium through which alliances are forged, coded data shared, and the illusion of humanity preserved. But the joke is also a small act of rebellion within the pompous corporate state, and as such, is vaguely threatening to viziers who view all jovial behavior as unseemly…In short, he who laughs last laughs carefully.”

Stanley Bing (pen name of CBS corporate communications vice president Gil Schwartz) in an essay entitled Going for the Jocular in The Big Bing: Black Holes of Time Management, Gaseous Executive Bodies, Exploding Careers, and Other Theories on the Origins of the Business Universe
