There’s prime real estate at the bottom of every email you send. Signatures — those few lines tacked onto the end of your messages — are often a missed opportunity to show how clever you are.
We mostly use email signatures in a professional manner, from stale quotes to “think of the environment before printing this email.” Instead, why not spice up your sign-offs with some humor to get a giggle out of your reader?
Check out these seven funny email signatures for some inspiration.

Highly confident people believe in their ability to achieve. If you don’t believe in yourself, why should anyone else put their faith in you? To walk with swagger and improve your self-confidence, watch out for these fifteen things highly confident people don’t do.
1. THEY DON’T MAKE EXCUSES.
Highly confident people take ownership of their thoughts and actions. They don’t blame the traffic for being tardy at work; they were late. They don’t excuse their short-comings with excuses like “I don’t have the time” or “I’m just not good enough”; they make the time and they keep on improving until they are good enough.
Edward Snowden announced during the interview with the Guardian that he recommends everybody stop using Dropbox. He recommends using SpiderOak instead.
I am switching over myself after his revelations.
While most of the official news sources state it is due to a “lack of security measures”, here is a technical breakdown of the reason:
1. While Dropbox does establish a secure connection using SSL though port 443 (standard HTTPS port) for the transfer and synchronization of your files, your files remain unencrypted on their servers and accessible by their systems administrators or anybody that is able to get into their system by legit (ie. government) or illegit (ie. hackers) means.
SpiderOak uses port 443 to establish the SSL connection as well -which makes sense because most firewalls have the HTTPS protocol added as an exception so it wouldn’t get blocked – but the key difference is that the information once it is stored on SpiderOak’s servers are encrypted blocks of data, inaccessible even by their systems administrators without your password.
2. The second reason why Dropbox isn’t that secure is because Dropbox allows you to connect through an SSL proxy, meaning that you establish an SSL connection to a 3rd party server and the 3rd party server connects to Dropbox through an SSL connection. If the proxy server is compromised, they can then strip the SSL from the session and sniff it. SpiderOak will reject SSL proxy connections. It must be connected through them directly.
The NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, has urged lawyers, journalists, doctors, accountants, priests and others with a duty to protect confidentiality to upgrade security in the wake of the spy surveillance revelations.
The CEO of Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten, Hiroshi Mikitani, has announced in a speech that his company will probably accept bitcoin “sooner or later”, according to a report.
The news, published in major daily newspaper Mainichi Shimbun, is significant as the Rakuten Group is the country’s premier online retail conglomerate, and one of the world’s largest, with a network of over 40 businesses worldwide and over 10,000 employees.
