A pithy slogan seen on plastic signs hung in offices and workplaces throughout the United States. It is supposed to be a whimsical perspective on people hating where they work, and the idea that management is incompetent and uncaring.

It has the wonderful side effect that it completely trivializes things like slave labor, prison labor, child labor, and other such real mistreatment of workers. In fact, if I was a paranoid socialist, I would suggest that American businessmen tolerate such workplace whimsy because it diverts attention from the real horrors of the corrupt capitalistic system. In a way, such toothless rebellion is a religion--Marx's opiate of the masses.
