Funny memes spread over the internet faster than fire in the bush. The reason is not only the funny aspects, but it’s also mainly because they convey a big part of the truth behind the joke, as the joker was passing a message to the king in medieval times. And this is why they can be very efficient at work.
These images, so as jokes and games, can be useful at work by helping to build rapport with colleagues and clients, breaking the ice in difficult situations, and making work more fun. Jokes can also be used to show that you are a competent and confident professional who is not afraid to laugh at yourself.
