“Never Use the Cell Phone While It's Recharging”...
This arrived in my inbox this morning - from our MD of all people.

To: All Staff
Importance: High

Please share the subject reported safety hazard on using the cell phone during recharging.

Dear All, I send this message to make you aware of the danger potential of the commonly used cellular phone. A few days ago, a close relative of mine was recharging his cell phone at home. Just at that time a call came and he attended to that call with the instrument still connected to the mains. After a few seconds electricity flowed into the cell phone unrestrained and the young man was thrown to the ground with a heavy thud. His parents rushed to the room only to find him unconscious, with weak heartbeats and burnt fingers. He was rushed to the nearby hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival. The Cell phone is a very useful modern invention. However, we must be aware that it can also be an instrument of death.

Laugh? I also most wet myself.
