Xmas parties: avoid sex, drugs and booze

The Register warns against all the things that can go wrong at the Christmas party:
Party balloons can kill: around 3.6 million people in Britain suffer from some degree of latex allergy. And over 1,000 people were injured by Christmas trees in 2002, so make sure they are secure and won't be knocked over by people passing by or pulling cables. Some other tips: keep fresh party food in a fridge before the party; use paper cups, not glasses; move computers out of range of spillages; and avoid indoor fireworks, flaming puddings, candles and smoking."

The ultimate office-do-gone-wrong would surely involve fireworks, candles, flaming puddings, dancing on desks, photocopied bodyparts, coke-sniffing in the disabled toilet, mass food poisoning, and at least two mistletoe-related sexual harrassment cases resulting in £10,000 settlements.
