Humor in hell


Kelly Dinard, AP, writes that composing your farewell email is a lost art.

One guy titled his: Free food in the employee lounge.

“These are tough times,” he wrote. "You will be pleased to know I have begun work on my long-delayed book and instructional DVD titled, “Rhymes with Truck: How to Use Profanity in Every Sentence.”

Star: I have that one!

Some people write long, Oscar-thank you type notes. Others are more, shall we say, direct, Dinardo says.

Of course, the so-called "grownups" warn against bitterness—it could hurt your job search.

One man got a lot of mileage out of quoting Macauley Culkin in “Home Alone.”

“This is it,” the tot says at one point, “don’t be scared now.”

Seen any great notes? Share!
