National Fun at Work Day!!???

It is Humor Me Wednesday at Catch-The-Bug and the fun holiday I picked it "National fun at work day", isn't that kind of an oxymoron?  I think the inside of this card could read... "Fun and work should not appear in the same sentence" or " Let me introduce you to my boss".  I am sure you could think of a few others.  I am using Crabby Cathy-download life, colored with copics and the paper is from My Minds Eye.
