There is a new virus.
The code name is "WORK."
If you receive WORK from your colleagues, your boss, via e-mail, or from
anyone else -- do not touch WORK under any circumstances.
This virus wipes out your private life completely.
If you should happen to come in contact with this virus, take two friends
and go straight to the nearest bar.
Order drinks and after three rounds, you will find that WORK has been
completely deleted from your brain.
Forward this virus warning immediately to at least five friends.
Should you realize you do not have five friends, this means you are already
infected by this virus and WORK already controls your whole life.
If this is the case, go to the bar and stay until you make at least five
Then retry.
