Friday Funnies


1. Santa Claus he is not.

BERLIN (Reuters) – A German man who had been drinking heavily at Munich’s Oktoberfest beer festival got stuck in a chimney for 12 hours while trying to climb into a friend’s apartment, police said on Friday. More here.

2. Are we going back to pencil and paper?

SEATTLE – Microsoft Corp.’s Excel 2007 spreadsheet program is going to have to relearn part of its multiplication table.

In a blog post, Microsoft employee David Gainer said that when computer users tried to get Excel 2007 to multiply some pairs of numbers and the result was 65,535, Excel would incorrectly display 100,000 as the answer. More here.

3. Something’s screwy

BERLIN (Reuters) – A German factory worker stole over a million screws from his employer and skewed the market with his cheap stolen goods, police said Friday.

Over two years, the 33-year-old assembly plant worker smuggled between 2,000 and 7,000 screws out of work each night, and auctioned them on an Internet site, police said. More here.

P.S. Let’s hope he stole the screws from the inventory and not from whatever he was putting together!
