receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues, or anyone else via any
means whatsoever – DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private
If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the
premises. Take two good friends to the nearest grocery store and purchase
one or both of the antidotes – Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and
Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote
repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.
You should immediately forward this medical alert to five friends . If you
do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is
controlling your life.
