Librarians go surfing at National Library

sbugden 17 December 2007 14

Here is a little clip of some of the staff at the National Library of Australia doing some surfing in the foyer at the XMAS party last Friday.

[Ed. My office christmas party memories have always been somewhat hazy. However thanks to the magic of modern technology here is a great example of what you otherwise might have forgotten (or might like to forget). Share your stories]

Give them a break. My partner works there (but not part of the skits in in the videos) and she says that they had three rehearsals during their lunch hour!

Oh, pish posh. “Safety nazi” is only a technical Godwinnng — the OH&S version of the Soup Nazi. I could have called them “whiny little cockbuckets,” if that works any better.

But the Goodberry’s Law is also a good one.

Does this qualify for the Gutenburg Law or whatever it was called ?

Goodberry’s Law ?
No, Goodwins Law…

The OH&S safety nazis are spinning in their graves upon seeing this video. WHO WILL THINK OF THE CHILDREN

WOW, those cardigan wearing librarians certainly know how to have fun.

Good on them!

You should see what a damper one sour puss boss has put on my workplace. Fun like that has been banned, and staff just keep leaving.

heh heh,
It is my last day on Friday!

Wow – so many positive comments! I suppose it is annoying to see people having genuine fun while you sit in a haze of self loathing and boredom.

They probably paid a ‘team building’ consultant $1500/day for a week to teach them all the moves.

I shudder to think of the time spent rehearsing it…

I can just imagine the workers compensation claim form…

Please state the nature of your injury:
“Wipeout, whilst hanging 10”

Yep, and how many have lodged compo claims today due to injuries recieved at the work Christmas Party?
