This story about a guy who died at his desk and went unnoticed for five days appeared in several European newspapers and finally found its way into my bosses' email in-box. Being privvy to all email, I of course opened it when I saw the subject line: "FW: FW: Don't work too hard."
As snopes explains, just because a newspaper prints it, that doesn't make it true. Hm. Someone is singing my song!
