Now You Can Design the Next Oreo Flavor

For the past few years, Oreo had been releasing an endless parade of new flavors.  Some of them have sounded great, like Cinnamon Bun and Brownie Batter . . . but some were just too weird, like Peeps and Swedish Fish Oreos.

But apparently, they’re out of ideas . . . so now, they want US to do all the unholy flavor breeding for them.

Nabisco just launched a new contest where YOU can submit ideas for the next limited-edition Oreo.  You can enter by using the hashtags #MyOreoCreation and #Contest on Twitter with your flavor idea until July 14th.

Then they’re going to narrow down the field and let the world vote.  The person who wins will get $500,000 and Oreo will actually produce and sell their flavor.

How Would People React If the World Were About to End?

I guess this counts as good news:  If the world was going to end, we probably WOULDN’T all turn into anarchists and murderers.  We’d be more likely to turn into really cool dudes.

A new study simulated how people would act if they found out the world was about to end.  And it found that the overwhelming majority of the people became WAY more social and loving . . . basically trying to make up for lost time.

The only people who turned violent were the ones who had antisocial and psychopathic tendencies beforehand.

78% of Bosses Say Having a Sense of Humor at Work Is Important

  Everyone HERE has to worry about being funny and interesting every day.  But should you worry about it at your job too?

According to a new survey, 78% of bosses think it’s at least somewhat important for employees to have a sense of humor at work.  It helps everyone bond, and helps keep things light.

22% said it’s very important . . . 56% said it’s somewhat important . . . and the other 22% said it’s not important at all.

That doesn’t mean you need to start telling one-liners or force it.  Just joking around and laughing at other people’s jokes is fine.

There are a few things you should AVOID though . . .

Don’t crack jokes during a serious meeting.  Be careful about trying to be funny or sarcastic in emails, because it doesn’t always land.  Make fun of yourself, but not other people.  And try to keep it as G-rated as possible.
