Of course we think that OUR jokes are funny in IT.
We choose NOT to ask the general public whether or not they agree.
But, I am brave; I am going to post right here, on the public, world WIDE web, one of our jokes.
Yesterday, Freddy left his computer unlocked and went to his meeting.
Before long, MZ found his PC in such a vulnerable state and quickly clicked on his Outlook. It took seconds before the entire group received an email… from Freddie:
Subject: Come say godd [sic] bye
I decided to quit! Sick of working with you, people! Good bye chocolate at my desk…
Coworkers came running. Either to apologize and beg Freddy not to leave. Or because they wanted chocolate before it was all gone.
They found NO chocolate and NO Freddy. And even MZ had already snuck back to her desk undetected (except by me) and muffling her giggles.
With Freddy in a meeting and no chocolate at his desk, coworkers quickly worked to remedy the situation. Before long, the following items were strewn across his keyboard:
- A nearly empty package of double-stuff Oreos
- Six tootsie rolls (the really little ones)
- One dark-chocolate Hershey’s bar, broken in several places
- A dark chocolate candy bar from some foreign country
- Two Hershey’s Nuggets Truffles
- And one tin of milk chocolate Slim-Fast powdered drink mix.
Upon Freddy’s return, he wondered aloud: “Is it Halloween already?”
Bethy the Third then asked him if perhaps he was depressed (being the reason that he had decided to quit) and Freddy quickly replied, “I’ve never been depressed so if I was, I wouldn’t know.”
With that statement, the as-depressed-as-the-average-working-adult coworkers ran to Freddy’s desk and took all of the chocolate to consume for themselves and try to lift their own dreary spirits.
Good thing Freddy doesn’t like chocolate.
