Holiday Office Parties At Risk Of Being Canceled

RALEIGH, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The horrible economy is causing a crash in holiday office parties, and a cancellation epidemic is underway.

With companies facing budget cuts, holiday parties are being canceled left and right, but corporate comedian Larry Weaver says nixing the bash is a terrible business plan.

He says workers look forward to the holiday party all year long, though today’s office bashes aren’t nearly as fun as they once were.

Weaver says, “People are so uptight and PC now. There’s not enough drinking at office parties anymore!”

He argues that just because money is tight, humor and fun don’t have to be scrapped from the office, and suggests holding a cheap and easy awards bash around the holidays.

His e-book, Funny Employee Awards, features printable certificates that give office workers the recognition they truly deserve.

For example, there’s the “Heinz Ketchup Award” for always making others wait, the “Human Vulture Award” for eating anything found lying around, and the “Jeff Gordon Award” for racing away from work the fastest.
