Believe it or not, but 8:02 p.m. on 20 February this year will be an
historic moment in time. It will not be marked by the chiming of any clocks
or the ringing of bells, but at that precise time, on that specific date,
something will happen which has not occurred for 1,001 years and will never
As the clock ticks over from 8:01 p.m. on Wednesday, 20 February, time will,
for 60 seconds only, read in perfect symmetry 2002, 2002, 2002, or to be
more precise - 20:02, 20/02, 2002.
This historic event will never have the same poignancy as the 11th hour of
the 11th day of the 11th month which marks Armistice Day, but it is an event
which has only ever happened once before, and is something which will never
The last occasion that time read in such a symmetrical pattern was long
before the days of the digital watch and the 24-hour clock - at 10:01
a.m. on 10 January, 1001. And because the clock only goes up to 23:59, it
is something that will never happen again.
Letter from the Penis,
I, the Penis, hereby request a raise in salary for the following reasons:
I do physical labor,
I work at great depths,
I plunge head first into everything I do,
I do not get weekends or public holidays off,
I work in a damp environment,
I don't get paid overtime,
I work in a dark workplace that has poor ventilation,
I work in high temperatures, and
My work exposes me to contagious diseases.
After assessing your request, and considering the arguments you have raised, the administration rejects your request for the following reasons:
You can not work 8 hours straight,
You fall asleep on the job after brief work periods,
You do not always follow the orders of the management team,
You do not stay in your designated area and are often seen visiting other locations,
You do not take initiative - you need to be pressured and stimulated in order to start working,
You leave the workplace rather messy at the end of your shift,
You don't always observe necessary safety regulations, such as wearing the correct protective clothing,
You will retire well before you are 65,
You are unable to work double shifts,
You sometimes leave your designated work before you have completed the assigned task,
And if that were not all, you have been seen constantly entering and exiting the workplace carrying two suspicious looking bags.
