When his company fell on hard times, the boss realized that he'd have to
lay off one of his two middle managers. As both Jack and Liz were equally
honest and dedicated to their jobs, he was unable to decide which one to
fire. To resolve his dilemma, the boss arbitrarily decided that the first
to leave his or her desk the next morning would be the one to get the ax.
The next morning found Liz at her desk, rubbing her temples. Asking
Jack for some aspirin, she headed for the water fountain and that's where
the boss caught up with her. "I've got some bad news for you, Liz," he said.
"I've got to lay you or Jack off."
"Jack off," she snapped. "I have a headache."
