You know, over the years I have heard some great fool’s errands. You know the fun (hopefully harmless) pranks to send new folks after this or that…
For the life of me, I can only remember some. I would like to start collecting them on this page.
As you drop them in comments, I will get them added to the page.
Sending an airman to get a gallon of prop wash
Sending a seaman for 50 feet of shore line
Sending a seaman for a can of remover
Thanks to a co-worker… a naval enlisted man was sent for fallopian tubing, I am betting that he didn’t find any.
For the service industry:
‘Tile Check’ – give them a plunger and told them to check for loose tiles
So in my office there are very inappropriate discussions.
one co-worker broke out in the theme from Bonanza but ended it with dildo…
I asked if it was with a suction cup or without. He seemed confused as to why it mattered. one is much better for use on the shower wall than the other.
The Bonanza singer lost it. I then piped up with that it was just a towel holder. Poor bystander bowed his head chucking as he blushed.
Yesterday Gigglez (@Mrs_PissedOffPirate) and I were in IKEA and found that they were running off of what I assumed is there touted solar panels. They will running minimal systems due to a power outage on the east side of 205 (for the locals).
We passed by a table where the table and legs were sold separately. okay… it got me to wonder in my tangential mind…
If I were to strike a person with a table leg, would I be hitting them or kicking them?
Yesterday my cube neighbor was trying to contain her laughter.
She was doing an admirable job, but she was reading autocorrects on dontpokethebear.com.
I looked over at one point and she was wiping away the tears.
A word had struck as particularly funny : Skittletits
This prompted a series of jokes and in our chatroom, up popped the line: Taste the rainbow.
Perhaps it should be motorboat the rainbow, but still…
What words strike you are funny?
If we were able to have superpowers…
Any superpowers at all. (to this point I cannot think of any limits on this one)
What would you want as yours?
Okay, today is Geek Pride Day.
It is a home run for geeks:
It is Towel Day (You Dougles Admas fans), The anniversary of the release of Star Wars, Glorious 25 May from Discworld, and major geek factor for today’s date. . .
5 + 25 + 12 = 42
If you fail to grasp the significance of 42, then you may well have your geek union card revoked.
It’s 5+25+12=42! Do you know where your towel is? Grab your lilacs, towel, or pin & win loot: http://j.mp/KI2olG #GeekPrideDay
Okay as Obamacare goes before SCOTUS, I get this email from some junk mail:
“Dear fellow conservative:” Â My friends do not refer to me that way, in fact most of them would find that quite funny in itself.
Further down it says:
“The Supreme Court is preparing to decide the fate of ObamaCare and we’re sending thousands of signatures to the Court with one clear voice: End ObamaCare Now.”
At what point did the Supreme Court give a shit about our feelings about an issue when they decided it? Did I miss some change in the court where the Court was not just looking to the Constitution and it’s intent on resolving an issue?
years ago I worked in a mass mailing print shop. I was in Computer Operations printing junk mail on forms was one of my tasks. A print job came in from the GOP that was a campaign funds letter. It was saying that they needed XXX dollar as “your fair share” for their campaign. Â I saw fair shares that ranged from double digits to five digits.
That always made me wonder about the GOP definition of fair share.
So for those of us in the Vancouver / Portland area, we were given a treat of snow when we got up this morning. (Unless you slept in, then you were on your own)
Gigglez would like to know if March came in like a lion because of the snow or was like a lamb since it was white and fluffy?
What say you?
I heard a young man ask his sister if she had a pair of balls that he could borrow.
I lost it. I knew that he meant that he was looking forÂ sphericalÂ earrings, but it was funnier the way that I heard it.
