Federal Employee of the Year:  2011

2011 Federal Employee of the Year from Partnership for Public Service on Vimeo.

It takes a huge talent for boredom to make one of the worst disasters of the past decade seem vapid. "The pressure was somewhere between high and low." Duh....

If only this fellow had been in charge of TIMBER BRIDGE INSPECTION, life would have been perfect.

Granular Sugar Pneumatic Conveying Test

Seven minutes of monotone narrator and watching sugar flow through a semi-opaque tube. Have we surpassed TIMBER BRIDGE INSPECTION yet?

Best Nap Ever!!

This kid is having too much fun during his nap -- I wish I had thought of that when I was in a crib.

Chances this video follows the kid the rest of his life? High School? Wedding?

Boredom Through Ham-carving

If these hams weren't so delicious looking, I'd rank these videos even higher on the boredom scale we have explored here before. Philip Jones is the new maestro of the somnolence-inducing monologue.

And I thought the whole point of a spiral-cut ham was, "no carving involved"...?

Longfellow’s Wayside Inn

Please rate this video for its boredom content, always using "Wooden Bridge Inspection" as your gold standard.

Add some extra points for the irritating traffic and nature noises in the background, and the wandering eyes of the narrators.

Grazing Management Basics

More boring than "Wooden Bridge Inspection"? You be the judge!

Clean Those Valves!

1) Wooden Bridge Inspection

2) Arrow Dipping

3) Cranberry Bog Tour

Have we found a contender to match those in boredom? The speech is out of sync with the lip movements, and there's annoying media broadcast in the background. Plus, the test notes he blows are atrocious!
