The hunt for the funniest Out of Office reply

I think Macromedia’s Doug Benson (hope he doesn’t mind me posting this) just made it to my shortlist of funniest OOO replies I’ve ever gotten.

“I’m out of the office, … In the event of an emergency, try to remain calm and centered, head for the nearest exit or bar, and tell your inner child to stop whimpering.”

Any other favourites?

    Thanks for your message.
    We already moved to the bar at the other side of the street.

    Sir, we finished all our tasks, however we missed your vote to make all the final decisions. Therefore, we are doing a teambuilding event at the nearest fitnesscenter.

    We don’t play games all day long, so we don’t have to work at this awfull hour.
