Poor Work Performance Blamed on Internet

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — About 20 percent of government staff in one Malaysian state use the Internet for personal activities including downloading pornography, music and games, the national news agency reported Tuesday.

This was one of the main causes of poor work performance in Johor state, Bernama said quoting a top state official, Norsiah Harun, adding that large file downloads also considerably slowed the state government's computer system.

Norsiah said the government viewed the matter seriously and would enforce the relevant regulations soon. She reminded all department heads to be firm in tackling the problem and to remind their staff of their responsibilities, Bernama said.

"Government staff are also reminded not to take too long during morning and afternoon breaks," she said.

From this point forward, I declare a strict NO GARFIELD policy on this blog.

Does that include President James Garfield? I suppose I'll have to mention now then that he's buried at the same cemetary as my grandfather in sunny vacation paradise Cleveland, Ohio. It's an old, creepy yet beautiful place. The cemetary, Lakeview, has decided to incorporate some funky death-related art to the cemetary.

Garfield never gets a laugh:

Quimby: Our city will _not_ negotiate with terrorists! Is there a city nearby that will?

Hapablap: No need, sir. We'll find that headcase faster than Garfield finds lasagna.
[Quimby looks at him] Oh. Sorry, my wife thought that was gangbusters.
