Last week, we provided this photo to you, for a caption contest:
This time we picked not one but two groups of finalists. One group of nominees came from the comments on the post, in the traditional fashion. The second group of entries was generated by guests at the recent holiday happy hour, sponsored by Applied Discovery.
Check them out and vote for your favorite in each group, after the jump.
We received a few dozen entries from the holiday party. These six were our favorites:
A. In lieu of a bonus, pick one.
B. When the Secret Santa program goes wrong….
C. Working on x-mas morning becomes a bit more bearable thanks to Santa Claus.
D. To: 3L (do not open until 2011).
E. All I want for Christmas is my job.
F. Let’s keep this deal under wraps for now.
We received over 300 entries via the post on our site. Here are our top eight:
A. We thought this was a more festive way to say your services are no longer needed.
B. “But remember, you can’t open it until Chris– I mean January 2011. Or later if I say so. Or never.”
C. Partner to Associate: “Oh, this is awkward. When I said ‘wrap up your work here,’ I meant you’re fired. My B.”
D. Uhh, thanks, but I’m Jewish.
E. Just imagine what the naughty associates got…
F. Gift ideas for that 2000 hours + biller in your life.
G. “I hope it’s not socks.”
H. On the twelfth day of Christmas my bosses gave to me:
twelve dollars in bonus;
eleven document reviews;
ten thousand dollar paycut;
nine midnight due dates;
eight assistants fired;
seven thousand pages to Shep;
six ty degree aircon;
five minutes to file;
four urgent emails;
three ballpoint pens;
two days off; and
one desk covered liberally.
Polls close Thursday at midnight.
Santa Claus and Applied Discovery will be bringing the authors of the winning captions their very own Kindles. Try not to
shoot wear your eyes out with them.
