“Accomplishing the impossible means only that the boss will add it to your regular duties”

"Accomplishing the impossible means only that the boss will add it to your regular duties” is a jocular work saying that has been printed on many images. American newspaper columnist Doug Larson (1926-2017) wrote this in his column in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on April 30, 1987.


Wikipedia: Doug Larson
Doug Larson (February 10, 1926 to April 1, 2017) was a columnist and editor for the Door County Advocate (1953–1964) and wrote a daily column, “Doug’s Dugout,” for the Green Bay Press-Gazette (1964–1988), both Wisconsin-based newspapers. The column was originally syndicated through United Media under the title “Senator Soaper Says”; Larson took over authorship in 1980. Previously, it had been written by Bill Vaughn of the Kansas City Star. Larson was born in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
