People who work from home are all looking oddly suntanned for people who work at their desks for eight hours a day, leading experts have confirmed.

Following extensive research by experts at the Institute of Experts it has been concluded that homeworkers are more likely to tan after brief exposure to sunshine than office drones.

“Well obviously people who are working from home are working exactly as hard as their counterparts who have to go to the office everyday.” Professor Smith told The Rochdale Herald.

“We think there must be some kind of genetic predisposition to tanning really easily for people who work from home.”

“Most homeworkers can get a tan after as little as 30 seconds exposure to sunlight from walking to their car to get their laptop out the boot, while an office worker would need at least two weeks in Gran Canaria with their feet up by the pool to get a corresponding suntan.”

“Some of the office workers we surveyed are as brown as professional golfers who live in Marbella.”

“It’s incredible really. Some might say it’s a complete mystery as to how it’s possible.”
