I thought I’d share with you a little secret to Total Monkery productivity. It’s called the Mockery and Contempt Model.

In summary: no idea shall be posited to the group without receiving mockery or a your-face joke. If you haven’t received mockery or a your-face joke, then you’ve been far too quiet today. And if you do something stupid, there will be no words of comfort, only giggling and/or: “Ah right. Do you know what I think you should do? Probably not that.”

It’s a controversial technique, probably only effective in teams where everyone is actually related in some way, or at least like each other very, very much.

A sub-section of the TM Mockery and Contempt Technique is the Wall of Dumb:


Interestingly enough, since we compiled the first three entries, very few¬†dumb mistakes seem to have happened… or at least, been confessed to.

In all seriousness, though, the Wall of Dumb is actually making a point: everyone in the office is represented, and mockery is doled out on a fairly equal basis, although Richard as Chief Sarcastic Git might get off lightly sometimes…

Cookies if you guess whose entry on the wall is whose!
