This may look like a standard office calculator, but is in fact one of the best one-off (yet deliciously slow-burn) office jokes I’ve seen in a very long time. The Wrongulator is programmed to get every calculation just a teensy bit wrong. The deliciousness, which I emphasise can be enjoyed once only per (well-chosen) victim, will come when somebody, preferably a bookkeeper or accountant, hunts for his or her calculator and can’t find it – possibly because you just hid it. “Here, use mine,” you will say. And then starts the fun. Tee hee.
