LowComDom Performances Presents
It has come to the notice of the management that employees have been found dying on the job, and either refusing or neglecting to fall over. This practise has to cease forthwith, and employees found dead in an upright position will immediately be removed from the payroll.
In future if a foreman notices that an employee has made no movement for a period of one hour it will be his duty to investigate as to the cause as it is almost impossible to distinguish between death and natural movement of some employees; foremen are asked to make very careful investigation by holding a pay packet in front of a suspected corpse, this being considered a most reliable test. There are, however, cases where natural instinct has been deeply ingrained and the hand of the corpse will make spasmodic clutches after rigor mortis has set in.
The most successful test is to whisper "SUNDAY WORK". This has been known to restore animation to a body which has been motionless all week.
The above-mentioned test should not be applied to foremen or assistant foremen, as in their cases movement of any kind is unnecessary.
