'Exterminate' your boss

"Can’t stand your boss? Do you stay up at night thinking of ways to ‘exterminate’ your boss without getting caught?"

yes as many of you probably know this is not some criminal advice or sadistic daydream - it's a promotional email from jazeera

... the rest of it:

"Then this SALE is for you! Avoid going to jail, get out of the office and take advantage of our hot new sale starting from KD 3 / AED 39! To sizzling beaches and vibrant metropolitan cities and forget all about him!"

I wonder who's the person behind jazeera's promotion team - someone with a bold sense of humor, or someone with politically incorrect judgement.

PS: it's interesting they assume the evil boss is a "him" ;)

lol jazeera needs to hire a new marketing team, i think the person behind this ad is not too fond of his boss

running away does not completely solve the problem. Extermination is necessary still.

*goes back to plotting his own extermination scheme*
