Phew.  I feel silly for taking the baited bait, but was probably going to
say those things sooner or later in this thread anyway.

Don't feel bad that we didn't get the joke.

There is little work-related stress that - for us USian and Canadian
Webniks - cannot be cured with regular doses of bottled Guiness and home
screening of "Monty Python's Meaning of Life" (which captures perfectly
the insanity we deal with in the course of working).

"Life of Brian" is also quite good for the cinematic portion of this
course of treatment.

"Office Space" while full of the same rich irony may well carry
side-effects of strong bitterness... which is under the circumstances
redundant.  That's what the beer is for.
