Work Virus Hoax
The following message has been sent out by email. It is a hoax. This "virus" does not exist, it is a joke/a spoof (just in case you didn't already know)..
Subject: Fwd: Warning
This virus warning is genuine.
There is a new virus going around, called "work."
If you receive any sort of "work" at all, whether
via email, internet or simply handed to you by a
colleague...DO NOT OPEN IT.
This has been circulating around our building for
months and those who have been tempted to open "work"
or even look at "work" have found that their social
life is deleted and their brain ceases to function
properly. If you do encounter "work" via email or
are faced with any "work" at all, Then to purge
the virus, send an email to your boss with the
words "I've had Enough of your crap... I'm off to
the pub." The "work" should automatically be
forgotten by your brain.
If you receive "work" in paper-document form,
simply lift the document and drag the "work"
to your garbage can. Put on your hat and coat and
skip to the nearest bar with two friends and order
three pints of beer (or rum punch). After
repeating this action 14 times, you will find that
"work" will no longer be of any relevance to you
and that "Scooby Doo" was the greatest
Please ignore any messages regarding this supposed "hoax" and do not pass on any messages regarding it. Passing on messages about this hoax serves only to further propagate it.
