The personnel department of the Mars Mining Consortium is inundated with inquiries. The department head, Mr. Cobre can’t figure out the sudden increase of applicants.

One day, a health and safety inspector has arrived and has demanded to talk to Mr. Cobre.

“Why on Mars, you have such loose protocols?!”

“What? What part is wrong?”
The inspector points to the offending line.

It said:

“..smoking or vaping is strictly prohibited. However, no one shall abstain from consuming edibles or oil..”

Mr. Cobre didn’t write this, but now he knows why so many wish to work for them.
