More sedentary workers are eating their desks during their lunch-hour instead of going out to a café or furniture shop. Some just nibble at desk-top corners, but many have been seen biting big chunks off.

Office workers are making themselves more prone to becoming ill, new research suggests.

This is because offices are becoming increasingly unhygienic. Many office desks contain more than 10 times the levels of bacteria-related contamination than the average toilet seat. Some are so bad that even computer mice scuttle off elsewhere.

Office computers - especially laptops - and keyboards are notoriously filthy, and most contain vast stores of miscellaneous filth and rubbish.

Inspectors at the Department of Office Hygiene are advising office workers to go out for lunch. "Or, if you haven't time to go out, then rather than eat your office desk, it's better to nibble at a nearby toilet seat."

Health and Safety Regulations require that all office desks should be fitted with large 'Do Not Eat' signs.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
