New Virus warning

Copied from another forum:
Message / Warning:

There is a dangerous virus being passed electronically, orally and by hand. This virus is called Worm-Overload-Recreational-Killer (or as it's commonly known - WORK)

If you receive WORK of any kind from any of your colleagues, your boss or anyone else via ANY means DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private/social life completely.

If you should come into contact with WORK, follow these instructions:

1. Put on your jacket

2. Take 2 friends to the nearest bar

3. Purchase the antidote known as Work-Isolator-Neutralizer-Extractor (or as it's commonly called - WINE)

4. Ingest the antidote orally in 6-8 oz doses repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.

PLEASE forward this warning to 5 friends. If you do not have 5 friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life!

This virus is DEADLY! Run (don't walk) to the closest liquor store or restaurant (if you are not near a bar) and administer the antidote immediately!

UPDATE:
After extensive testing, it has been concluded that Best-Equivalent-Extractor-Remedy (or BEER) may be substituted for WINE. Please note that you may require a more generous dosage in order to receive equal benefit of WINE.

Looking out for you and your health!

That's kinda funny Talbot.

Too bad you didn't put that under the "jokes" thread?

Thought about it, would have lost the link to "virus warning"
