Bosses Better Watch Their Backs

TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Office workers are typically disgruntled, and they’ve all dreamed of killing their bosses at one point or another.

Author/illustrator Graham Roumieu’s latest book, 101 Ways To Kill Your Boss (Plume), features dark, yet hilarious cartoons about how to execute your chief executive.

The boss bludgeoning tactics include turning a “World’s Greatest Boss” card into a paper airplane of death, giving your boss a deadly thumbs up right in the eye socket, and creating a fatal filing cabinet trap baited with donuts.

While Roumieu has the luxury of being his own boss these days, he wasn’t always so lucky.

In college, he worked as a temp for a company that made cheesy customized coffee mugs that could be purchased at shady truck stops.

He says the “gloomy, flickering” office was the most depressing place ever, not to mention ironic.

Says Roumieu: “I was there putting happy faces, unicorns, and ponies on mugs while everyone around me looked like they wanted to die – at least emotionally.”

Despite the terrible job, Roumieu insists he never once actually tried to kill his boss.
