Or indeed anybody of a sensitive disposition. You will see why as you glance through the horrors below…
Firstly, we have one of the architects (who else) sporting a rather fetching outfit. I am not sure if it is designed as a bizarre bondage outfit and he is attempting to provoke his other half into some adult fun or is it just to terrify little people into doing as they should? I have no answers to these questions but I do know that Jamie H is currently ‘resting’ in a secure place.
Next up is a terrifying advert I was sent by a very small Scottish startup. They are pushing a Grindr/Tinder like app for the lonely lady or gentleman who happens to be in one of the remoter areas of Scotland. They call it FishR. Apparently you can geo locate and meet attractive Scottish gentleman, of the more rugged outlook, for traditional outdoor’s pursuits. They also do extras. I am not sure it is going to catch on.
Thirdly, we are in IT so it is quite natural that we don’t all parade about in the latest clobber from the great fashion houses of Italy. However, I do feel standards are slipping when certain members of the team start turning up dressed as medieval dung collectors. This one appears to be particularly down on his luck.
Finally, here is a shot of Markos relaxing at home in some resplendent head gear. I believe, he is attempting to start a Tesco Bank Come Dine with me club. Here he is practicing on his own.
We have had enough of unmitigated horror so I thought I would lighten the mood a little. Tony ‘cat man’ Ciarletta sent me this suggestion as an ideal Christmas present. I believe he has one on order for himself and the long suffering Mrs Ciarletta. After all who doesn’t like pussies and it can get quite cold in Scotland?
If you wish to purchase one and proudly sport around the office please feel free to do so.
