THE requirements for being deemed a ‘legend’ have been raised from buying colleagues a doughnut to overcoming a seemingly invincible adversary.
Over 98 per cent of workers have been granted legend status by colleagues, mainly for providing snacks and hot drinks.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “This legend thing is wearing thin, to say the least.
“To qualify as a legendary figure you must either slay a massive dragon that is terrorising an isolated community or overcome the unjust rule of a feudal tyrant.
“Simply remembering that Bridget in bought ledger likes chocolate sprinkles on her mochacino is not good enough.”
However office manager Wayne Hayes said: “You could say Ulysses is a legend because he killed a cyclops and fought some battles, but he never bought the head of his marketing department a cake shaped like a penis, which personally I think is better.”
