Dear FCC:
I am a self-employed business attorney, who caught myself surfing Facebook while at work last year. I hired myself to sue myself, and won, but decided against firing myself because I didn't want to risk a counter-suit. I still won a substantial cash judgment however. The problem is that the award was more than I had and it bankrupted me. So I had to file bankruptcy, and now my wages are garnisheed and a substantial portion of my paychecks are sent to myself every week to satisfy the judgment against me. Understandably, my bank was very confused at first, with money transferring back and forth from account to account all week long. I explained it to them and they seem to be satisfied that nothing illegal is going on. With the constant bank activity and positive balances, my credit rating (previously in the tank as a result of the bankruptcy) has shot back up to over 860...higher than it was before suing myself! So I just thought I would take a moment to write and say thanks on behalf of lawyers everywhere. This piece of legislation will keep us in the catbird seat for many years to come.

Sincerely,
A. Shyster, attorney

I wonder if you could argue that, by not blocking (for example) Fark.com, the company is giving implicit permission for its staff to waste an entire day arguing with dumb-asses on the politics tab?

Fark makes me happy, and thus more likely to get along with my team at work. It's for the company.

Well, I just looked up "two girls one cup" and let me just agree with your boss. You need a serious talking to.

If I couldn't read Fark at work, I would probably go on a murder spree on my co-workers. Those insufferable bastads drive me crazy.

Plus being a state employee, how else am I going to waste my time?

That's what your phone is for. And don't connect to their wireless. I mean if I was to do such a thing, which I do not.
