A degree of irony and self-awareness largely absent from the text

We get a corporate global email from the Chief Executive...

As part of the council's lurch into the brave new world of empowered employee buy-in we're going to have a New Staff Newsletter. Again. If in doubt, launch a New Staff Newsletter.

This prompts an immediate and enthusiastic discussion amongst the ranks in the library.
  • Salome suggests "Bugger bugger bugger bugger."
  • Sybil suggests "Two fingers to the workplace."
  • And Maudie suggests "Bollocks."

How about "Tales from Helminthdale"?. Has a nice ring to it.

Back in the days when I did a corporate newsletter I was warned off calling it "A Crate of Old Toffee."
