A big corporation recently hired several cannibals.
You are all part of our team now, said the HR rep during the welcoming briefing. You get all the usual benefits and you can go to the cafeteria for something to eat, but please don't eat any of the other employees.
The cannibals promised they would not.
Four weeks later their boss remarked, You're all working very hard, and I'm quite satisfied with you. However, one of our secretaries has disappeared. Do any of you know what happened to her?
The cannibals all shook their heads no. After the boss had left, the leader of the cannibals said to the others, Which one of you idiots ate the secretary?
A hand raised hesitantly, to which the leader of the cannibals continued:
You fool!!! For four weeks we've been eating Managers and no one noticed anything, but noooooo, you had to go and eat someone important!
Esta lista veicula diariamente uma história, preferencialmente engraçada (afinal, quem não gosta de uma boa piada?), ou uma citação. As histórias estão em inglês, e as palavras mais incomuns são comentadas. Dessa forma os alunos aprendem, todos os dias, duas ou mais palavras novas. Todos os dias. Em um ano esse pequeno esforço diário pode vir a fazer uma grande diferença.
