Make love, not work

Boy, never got an offer like this at any of my jobs:

ULYANOVSK, Russia (Reuters) - The governor of a central Russian province urged couples to skip work Wednesday and make love instead to help boost Russia's low birth-rate.

And if a woman gives birth in exactly nine months time -- on Russia's national day on June 12 -- she will qualify for a prize, perhaps even winning a new home.

I was fired once, and the boss, in his parting remarks, did urge me to do something. But it involved only myself, and certainly wouldn't have resulted in any offspring.
