Boss: How come you haven't been working well today?
Ted: Well, you see I'm a bit toxicated after having a beer at lunchtime.
Boss: Don't you mean "intoxicated?"
Ted: No you uneducated fool! Toxicated! Don't you know anything?! How come you make more than me?!!!
Boss: Wow, I am totally sorry for being a stupid ignoranus
. I am now going to send in my letter of resignation and relinquish my job and salary to you.
