For anyone who's watched the TV show "The Office" as religiously as I have, the classic "stapler in Jell-O" trick surely sounds familiar. It's pretty much what the name describes: Simply make a batch of Jell-O, but make sure your colleague's stapler is hidden inside the mold. As I said -- classic. But what other, less conventional pranks are out there to add some kicks to an otherwise average day at the office?
Be honest: Do you spend a lot of time during your work day chatting with colleagues on messaging apps, like Slack?
It's okay -- so do we. And while some of our messages are GIFs and emojis (okay, the majority of our messages), we also get into lots of lively Slack discussions (okay, debates) about news stories and product announcements in the marketing technology space.

Mayo on a sandwich. Hot sauce on a taco. Hot fudge on a sundae. All things that --- when used correctly --- make the thing they complement way better.
But If you use too much of any of them, or use them in the wrong context (hot sauce on a sundae? No thanks.), or simply use them wrong (gobs of mayo, instead of a thin layer), you’ve ruined a perfectly tasty snack.
Gone are the days when social media publishing and engagement could be tacked onto the daily responsibilities of an intern -- as were many of the first roles in social media.
Today's growth-minded organizations need a team of people ideating, creating, publishing, and promoting content on social media to drive meaningful returns on investment -- and this requires time, effort, and creativity.
It was halftime during one of my 7th grade football games. And we were losing 14 - 0. With our knees planted in the grass, my team was quietly huddled, drenched in sweat and defeat. We all knew the game was over.
