I once worked in an office that would always end department-wide emails with a gif of a cute animal. It happened so often that it became an unofficial rule in our office. People would be upset and complain if a gif was left off an email.

People were furious with me and shortly thereafter people stopped sending animal gifs to each other and morale dropped. I guess the lesson here is never try mess around with the rules, and never, ever show a mollusk love.
