Oh my god, That's Darrel, in our Cincinnati Office.........

That's their Top Guy and a great line dancer.

He was awarded 'Top Employee of the Month' 37 months in a row.

A real inspiration and a model for all our public sector employee's.

Here lies the body of Solomon Grundy.

Went to work on Monday,

Died at his desk on Tuesday,

His body found on Wednesday,

Viewed on Thursday,

Cremated on Friday,

And, that is the story of Solomon Grundy.

Having died at his desk, his widow thought the appropriate venue for the viewing of his body would be at the office. His remains were cremated in the office building furnace, and his ashes were scattered in the planter at the receptionist's desk.

I'll just lay here until CR4 comes up with a fix for the error message,

"Could not process form: The system was unable to process this form"

But just in case it takes a while, there's a copy of my Will and a list of next of kin in the drawer.

Give the poor guy a break. He was exhausted from spending the day at the unemployment office getting his unemployment check for being furloughed that he'll not be obligated to pay back when Congress authorizes him to be paid for being furloughed.

It's tough work being a multiple dipper!!!

National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) unions as well as the AFGE and NTEU unions, they need people like Jim here.

Fly the Stars and Stripes high, be proud, join a union, put your legs up, relax.

They can't touch you.
