Things to Do to Mary When You're Bored

When your supervisor isn't looking, sneak online and print out a picture of Michelango's Pieta.

Take a Sharpie, draw a little dialog bubble above the Virgin Mary's head, and within it write "Oy, you're too skinny."

Surrepetitiously pass the picture to your stressed-out Jewish employee, then watch as she collapses into a helpless fit of shoulder-shaking, hiccup-inducing laughter.

Stongly encourage her to hide the picture in her desk before the Christians in the surrounding cubicles start asking what's so darn funny.

Get back to work, secure in the knowledge that the light-hearted defacement of sacred iconography totally lets the sunshine in.
