This came from a company-wide email sent out ealier today by one of my more fearless co-workers:
"Today marks the beginning of Hanukkah, the Jewish holiday commemorating the
rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem in 164 B.C. Also referred to
as the Feast of Lights, Hanukkah recalls the Talmudic story of the Temple's
one-day supply of oil miraculously burning for eight days."
"Tonight at the Christmas Party, we will witness a similar miracle, as one
bottle of wine will last for eight minutes. Good thing we've got 12 cases
and a couple kegs."
There is nothing quite like an advertising firm's "Holiday" festivities...
