As you well know, Pink Slipped is an advocate of exercising to keep your laid off mind and body at their peak, as well as tweeting your way to job search success. However, the saga of 23-year-old Brit James Coleman gives us occasion to remind you that the two should never be done at the same time.

Mr. Coleman was minding his own business, tweeting away while jogging to work, when he was unceremoniously dropped to the pavement by an aggressive, low-hanging tree branch. According to his account of the incident, the branch "came out of nowhere," as tree limbs are known to do. Witness:

"I guess you could say I feel a right Twit," he said

"One minute I was running along posting a tweet, the next I was lying on my back on the pavement in agony."

You've been warned. 

To all my people that don't got no job, everyday is Friday.
