1.29. Every day a man drinks his breakfast and drinks his lunch. When his boss finds out, he is immediately fired. The man moves to another job and begins doing the same thing; this time, when his boss finds out, the boss jokingly tells him that he'll be fired if he stops. (RSW)

1.29 answer: The man is drinking diet shakes for his breakfast and lunch in order to lose weight. Unfortunately, his first job is at a weight-loss clinic, so he is fired for patronizing the competition. His second job is at a health-food store, and his boss wants him to lose weight so he looks "healthier."
