They're good for something at least

I'm sitting here working on collecting money on some aged receivables, simultaneously trying to distract my mind and fend off a panic attack. I called one of the brokers to follow up on an extremely past due commission.

Me: Hi... I just wanted to touch base--

Broker: Joe Schmo?

Me: Yeah, how'd you guess.

Broker(exasperated sigh): I have gotten nowhere with that cocksucker.

Laughter may very well be pretty darn close to the best medicine. What will be even better is my boss's reaction when I put that in my notes on the deal.
