    Very amusing, well worth the short time to read it. Granted, people who don't have to deal a great deal with very badly written office memos or reports from underlings probably wouldn't like it nearly as much, but I thought it was great. Definitely library-worthy. 4/5

    Like a well-made espresso, short and eminently enjoyable.

    5/5.

    Bumped to gain more attention.

    I actually laughed out loud while reading this, which almost never happens to me even while reading professional writing, never mind fanfiction. The story is short, and shouldn't take more than five minutes to read, but was still able to amuse me more than any other humor oneshot I've read until now (except, perhaps, Why is it Orange by Grinning Lizard). It's well-written, concise, funny, and pleasant to read: exactly what a humor oneshot should aim for. I even think I'm going to make this a part of my headcanon now.

    5/5. Any humor story that makes me laugh out loud deserves nothing less.

    The humor is funny, but the drunkspeak is painful to read, and gets in the way of the jokes. 3/5
