I don't mind collecting the eggs every morning. At least I don't have to milk the cows they just got in Marketing.

Newest DOS Attack
Looks like Carl got the new Russian bird virus.  It's a DOS attack right in your cube, lots of hunting and pecking.  Definitely a Zero Day, and when they lay eggs watch out.....you could be next.

Chicken Feed
Turns out Bob was right about getting paid chicken feed. Management felt they could get better value by actually giving it to chickens.
