  3. Attach 10 or so bottles of white-out to the inside of your suit jacket. Every time you pass a co-worker, surreptitiously open your jacket and whisper, 'I got white-out here; three bucks a pop; good quality stuff; who needs white-out?'
  4. Bring several large mason jars to work and fill them part way with water and yellow food coloring; display them conspicuously around your work space.
