Extort a bastard....
surest way to a nasty accident and loooong time in hospital.
The long-awaited weekend has almost arrived! The migration of the server room to the new site and the transfer of our 'crucial' services to the successful tendering party (ie our ghost facility) is about to commence. "But I still don't see why we need to pay a data transfer fee!" the Boss whinges. "Because they'll need to put …
If it were me (not that I would of course), I would have actually loaded up the trolley with all that crap and knocked a castor off it on the stairs - that way the marks would match "what happened"
Of course, if there happened to be a passing middle-management type at the bottom of the stairs, all the better.

This one made it to You Tube (NSFW warning, seriously)
The Fax Wizard, and real live clippy are absolute gems.
Any chance of a re-release at a higher resolution?

@Robert Biebricher: "surest way to a nasty accident and loooong time in hospital."
How long does one usually spend in the morgue before being trundled off for a dirt nap?

The Insurance bloke made the mistake of leaving a "wounded" PFY alive...
