HR Strange But True!
February 19, 2004

We all know that HR is never dull, but sometimes it can get downright strange...

Hostility written all over them

A Baltimore-based outfit called Evil 2 the Core has come up with a product that lets women in various professions express how truly unhappy they are in their jobs ... in an undercover sort of way.

Evil 2 the Core explains in a press release that its "signature tank-bras--designed to be worn undetected beneath regular clothing--are printed with satisfyingly hostile sentiments that boost a professional's bust and lift and separate her hatreds: for her boss, her co-workers, her clients, and her customers."

For example, medical professionals can give their diagnosis with "I'm Fine You Might Die," or "Go to the Light Already." Corporate professionals can turn themselves into walking PowerPoint demonstrations with "Nothing Here Matters" or "Feigning Enthusiasm." And cocktail waitresses can deliver that umpteenth round of martinis in, "Your DWI is Tip Enough" or "This Smile Means I Hate You."

Evil 2 the Core claims to be doing brisk business in the undergarments, despite next to no advertising--perhaps another sign of worker dissatisfaction these days.

"Wearing evil underwear gives you a sly sense of empowerment and combats having your spirit slowly crushed. I know. I wear one everyday," says company co-founder Susan Koch. "We figure anything we can do to add a little levity to the mix of aggravation and drudgery is a good thing."
