Worm Quartet My Job Gave Me a Poncho 
featuring Brian Graupner of The Gothsicles
Not quite a true story, but based on two true stories - I combined the conditions at a former job with a gift I received at my current job and the result was this mess. I've received several company-branded items over the years - coffee mugs, water bottles, towels, yoga mats, calculators, Rubik's cubes, condoms, bouillon, turnips, etc., but the one that raised my eyebrows the most was most definitely...well, I don't want to give it away for those of you who haven't read the title. Let's just say it rhymes with "Gonzo" if you have a serious speech impediment.

The golden voice of Mr. Brian Graupner is sprinkled delicately onto the chorus, lending this song a touch of class that elevates it far beyond what one might normally expect from Worm Quartet's annual sonic offage.

Vocals / backing vocals / oos / aahs / programming / keyboards - Shoebox
Additional vocal gloriousness - Brian Graupner
Recorded and mixed by Shoebox, mastered by Devo Spice

This song is now available on the following CDs:

My favorite company "gift" was the Poison Coffee Mug. It actually had a sticker on the bottom saying it may contain lead. ("Gift" means poison in German.) WQ+Brian Graupner <3

I have to wait for the 25 year gift for my poncho!

Funny!! Funny!! But none of my employers ever game me a poncho. Quite a few t-shirts and golf shirts, however.

If I could edit my previous comment ... I meant "gave" me a poncho, not "game".

I designed the company shirt for a PRIZE... know what the prize WAS? --THE SHIRT ITSELF. --- also, the last thing I was given by my company was a plastic compartmental jobber with four band aids in it. yup. --FANTASTIC JOB, Shoebox....you deserve another poncho!

I love the mix of classic Shoebox and classic Gothsicles. Has someone checked to make sure Alachav is ok after hearing this?
