Best company ever.

I bet they can hardly wait for "Female condom" day.
 
2007-11-23 11:43:19 AM  
I dunno, but the day they declare it the official "jockstrap day" at my company I might call in sick.

/Because I probably will be.
//At the thought.
 
2007-11-23 11:58:52 AM  
Are they hiring?
 
2007-11-23 11:59:24 AM  
Wow. This company sounds cool. And it sounds like its employees are pretty cool too.
 
2007-11-23 12:00:02 PM  
Article is short but chock-full-o-win:

"We have been waiting for this day all month. Today, we are super high, and don't know where to put our eyes.

"When I was trying on my outfit at home, my husband told me I should dress like this every day."

Hot Asian girls in underwear thread?

This would be nice at my company, but it's just me and 5 guys I went to high school with. The women's rest room is just a supply closet, we even took out the toilet.

I bet many TPS reports went unfiled that day.

<b>steklo:</b> <i>I want Camisole day at my place of employment...a High School</i>

How many fark articles are there a month with some teacher posting something like this on the internet and getting fired ?

And yet they never learn.

All 500 female workers were encouraged to wear smalls - and a stunning 90 per cent did.

Is there a special use of the word "smalls" here -- or is it just implying that they hiring A and B cups?

I just hope it was the RIGHT 90%. Some of the girls at my office would require heavy eye bleaching... :(

What about combining Camisole Day with Bring Your Daughter to Work Day?

2007-11-23 12:15:21 PM  
I don't see this as being particularly helpful to productivity (at least for the straight males on their payroll).
 
2007-11-23 12:15:26 PM  
Yet in North America the company would have their collective asses sued right off them and lose, forcing them to close their doors. Probably get a few of them labeled as sex offenders as well.

Ashtrey The women's rest room is just a supply closet, we even took out the toilet.

I find this statement hilarious. If true, you might be my new favorite person. Seems like the kind of zany antics I would do if I owned my own company, hoping that when the building inspectors come by they don't actually go in the restroom.
 
2007-11-23 12:17:52 PM  
I wish I were Taiwanese...then maybe my interest in Asian women wouldn't be considered so creepy!

Too bad they don't bring eye bleach, as I'm sure some will be needed.

Seriously, given what the average american woman's measurements are 5'4" and 163 lbs (according to the National Center for Health Statistics) I would probably pass if an American company tried the same thing. Seriously, I look around at so many women in this country and listen to them biatch and moan about not having a love life when the avg. american woman has gained 11 lbs from the year 1988 until 2002 (the last time the statistics were compiled.)

My wife is around 5'8" and under 130 lbs and asian. Few if any of her fellow countrywomen would begin to tip the scale at anything over 150 lbs at a height of 5'4", yet that's merely the average here in America. I'd be willing to bet that fewer than 10% of those women in Taiwan would be considered overweight by any sort of standard. Here in America, its probably more like a good 30-40% with some states having populations approaching 50% or more.
 
2007-11-23 12:19:11 PM  
Wow, now that beats "tropical shirt Friday" by a clean mile!

/Mmmmmm.... business caaaaasual.

Really? Wow. Seeing as it's Friday, I'll be an AW & confess to being 5'5" and 132 lbs.

All I usually notice about other wimmins is that their boobies are bigger than mine. :(

I don't know how to break this to you, my friend...

but they already do no matter what she's wearing.

That's odd. In SoCal, camisoles aren't referred to as "underwear". They're called "shirts".

Well you did better than I. I originally thought a camisole was a type of umbrella.
