Those crafty Brits! They come up with everything cool: British accents, Austin Powers, Led Zeppelin

And now they’re using flavored wallpaper in company elevators.

Who cares about tongue bacteria when your work elevator tastes like Jaffa Cakes! What’s a Jaffa Cake, you ask? It’s the popular orange-and-chocolate cake snack from across the pond, of course!

The lucky staff workers at a building in London don’t have to be bored in their elevator anymore. According to NBC, they now have 1,325 sponge cake flavored stickers to lick during their ride.

The flavored elevator is meant to decrease stress levels in the employees. Makes sense. We definitely feel more relaxed after we’ve licked some walls.

We get it, and it actually sounds like a really rad idea to us.

Except what about the bacteria? Who knows where those British tongues have been.

Once one of the flavored stickers is licked, it’s removed by a guy whose job is to stand there the whole time employees ride the elevator. You know, to make sure germs don’t spread.

Yep, that’s a real job.

We’re wondering how we can apply for that.
