The Press Release

After rumors spread that the company had received numerous accusations of sexual harassment on the part of its CEO, the public relations manager issued a press release. It read:


The Acme Widget Company prides itself on how we treat all of our employees and our company culture will not abide by abuses of that trust. It has come to our attention that J.P. Biggerton, our long time Chief Executive Officer, has been accused of having enticed a number of female workers into his office and having forced them to inappropriately cuddle with him on his executive sofa.

As much as we admire Mr. Biggerton for his leadership skills over the past decade, we cannot allow such inappropriate behavior to continue. As such, there are some significant ch-ch-ch-changes being made throughout our organization, beginning with the resignation of Mr. Biggerton as CEO.

We appreciate your loyalty to our company in the past and hope that our prompt actions to address these ugly matters will not prevent you from doing business with us in the future.

    I read today that someone is making £1500 a month by being a ‘cuddle therapist’. Apparently she goes around giving strangers a cuddle to make them feel better…….. for a fee. I missed my vocation then but in today’s current state with Covid, I think I’ll just hug myself.
