In today's workplace, it is common for a whole slew of workers to be laid off in one sweep of a company's hand. When this happens, the chance for a worker to "lose it" increases exponentially. This compunded withthe fact that internet companies are going down faster than Hugh Grant on an LA back street, I think that a sniper perch for my, or anyone else but those being fired, desk is appropriate.

Vincenzo's "First Strike" sniper perch easily mounts to the monitor of your standard terminal in today's internet officespace. It has plenty of room for extra bullets, since lots of people will be laid off. It also has 360 degree turret rotation, becuase those pink-slip psychos will be coming from all directions. Also, take action now and receive free one "Management Clearout Defensive Smoke Grenade." Perfect for when a new CEO "clears house" of midde and upper level management. We all know that although managers are not the front line warriors your general officespace workers are, they are both cunning and loose lipped. The MCDSG will buy you the extra time you need to download funny videos while taking aim on your new sniper perch.

And you can sell videos and books below cost through the internet terminal attached underneath the M-1 rifle housing.

Not to mention the possibility of dirty old men doing something I call "chatting" with little girls in what i call "chat r

       It's a confirmed statistic that when workers do not have the internet as a distraction, they can achieve 80 bullets-per-minute (BPM), but when they are trying to browse the internet and catch up on slashdot news stuff, their productivity drops 72%. It's also confirmed that 68% of all statistics are made up.
