Swine Flu

Here's 9 things you can do to try and avoid getting laid off.

1. Go off on long-term sick leave

2. 'Come out' - everyone loves a gay, especially a firm with diversity targets

3. Start doing some real work

4. Make out that you / your partner are having a baby (probably a good idea not to try this at the same time you have done number 2 above)

5. Fake an accident - crutches are cheap

6. Volunteer for redundancy - there's no way you'll get laid-off then

7. Talk often and loudly about all the friends you have in the financial press

8. Pretend that you've been taking a law degree at night school

9. Learn to speak Mandarin (fluently)
