Is he havin’ a Laugh?!!

Hospitality Clothing Comes to the Rescue

OK, We’re big Ricky Gervais fans and any chance to quote the man brings a wave of laughter to the Promotion Products office.

Actually, I’ll tell you why this hunk of spunk is having a laugh, it’s because his female boss has her head screwed on the right way.
