An image of mundane appreciation wins 3rd Prize in world famous photographic contest!

Tomasz Wiech, a Gazeta Wyborcza Krakow photographer based in Poland, has won the third prize of the Daily Life Singles category with this photo.

Personally, I like the expression of the office worker. Is he smiling out of embarrassment for his poor sandwich making skills? Was there no time to add cucumber, cheese slices, a thin layer of marmite or some hot mustard bombs? Or are his slightly glossed lips smiling in anticipation of his deliciously simple open ham panini?

Otherwise, nicely clean and tidy staff kitchen, with 2 kettles. I also like the yellow and blue colour scheme.
But what's in the plastic bag?

Hilarious Office Pranks!

When NBC invited fans of the US version of The Office to send in pictures of their places of work, they received thousands of photos. Many people decided to use the opportunity to send in photos of the pranks they'd played on their colleagues.
Here is a selection of some of my favourite photos.
There seems to be much use of jelly! Is there an office pranks manual that advocates sweet cherry flavoured moulds for office equipment?
I can't decide on my favourite, its between the elastic band phone and the peanut filled booth. one so joyous but very messy and the other sculptural but incredibly frustrating.
