It seems that Ferris Bueller is not the only person that goes to great lengths to sneak out for a day. One employee is hoping this disguise will let him slip out of work early. We have a feeling that he is not going to get to far before his office realizes that is not him, but nice try.

If you are trying to get any other food than Subway sandwiches, than you are getting kicked off the cliff, well the make believe cliff. These employees had time on their hand so these sandwich artists took it to a new level. They are not only creating sandwich art they are making vegetable art too.
39. Excel Worksheets
Who knew you could create art even in Microsoft Excel? I sure didn’t and I don’t think this person’s boss meant this when she told her employee to work on Excel. Mike Tyson might be proud but don’t accidentally e-mail this to the boss because she probably will not be.
