Funny Pet Names for the Wankers at Your Work

As it says on the the Workwankers website, “You know who they are. Now you know what to call them behind their backs.” Though created for those who work in the advertising industry, anyone who makes that daily trek to the office will appreciate this hilarious set of illustrations called Workwankers. (Wanker was originally a British slang word that carried with it a sexual innuendo, but in these modern times, it refers to anyone who is egotistical or self-indulgent.)

Peter Cortez and Joe Sayaman of agency Mizaplas have posted 15 illustrations that give funny pet names to those you can't stand at work. Our favorite is “Shoulderbeast,” a huge monster that's described as the “creepster who stands stalk-style over a working creative's shoulder.” Who doesn't getting annoyed by that guy?

On the Workwanker website, you can “Call Out a Wanker” by sending an anonymous email to the office perpetrator or you can “Suggest a Wanker” and the fine folks at Mizaplas may add your contribution to their series.

Out of the 15, here are some of our favorites.
