As I said, posting video clips is a pretty lazy way to blog, but I think you'll enjoy this one. Ed Byrne nails Alanis Morissette.

Back in the 90's, I remember another British comedian basing his routine on Alanis Morisette's misplaced usage of 'ironic'. I suppose it's up to the Brits to teach her the proper use of this term. Most Americans are too earnest (or nonchalant) to qualify for such a role.

I remember an article that came out in the New York Times after the song became very popular, the writer took each scenario in the song and analyzed the supposed irony. Conclusion: except for one item (which only ranked as possibly ironic if looked at in a certain way), then none of the things she sang about was ironic at all. Mostly coincidental.

You think that dude from "The Office" is bad? He would win Boss of the Year compared to some of the people we’ve come across. But we know we are not alone. There are many people out there that hate:
A) Their Boss
B) Their Colleagues
C) Their customers
D) Something else work-related
E) ALL OF THE ABOVE!
IHMB is a website with dual purposes. On one hand, it is a forum to bitch about, discuss, vent and unload the bad experiences you have at work. Could be with your boss, colleagues or even customers. A place to have a whinge- guaranteed someone else has the exact same problem!
On the other hand, it is a place to find a casual job, with the best casual jobs in Sydney listed. Hate your boss ALOT? Trade them in and get a new one!
