Preparing Meals That Are Works Of Art

| Wales, UK | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Pets & Animals

(I and two other keepers are in our keeper kitchen preparing feeds ready to go, and get started on our morning routines. I’m chopping some vegetables quickly and a piece of cabbage falls on the floor. Keeper #1 walks passed me.)

Keeper #1: “There’s cabbage on the floor.”

Keeper #2: “A poem, by [Keeper #1].”

(At this point, we all start laughing. Keeper #1 is laughing so hard that she’s just standing there in tears, unable to do anything except hold a pot of mealworms she’d made up earlier. After a few minutes we manage to stop, but Keeper #1 is still laughing.)

Me: “I think this is still part of the poem.”

Keeper #2: “It’s performance art. I don’t know what the mealworms are meant to represent though.”


Well, Those Can Be Edible Too

| UT, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Coworkers, Food & Drink, Language & Words, Rude & Risque

(There are extra cupboards in our break-room where workers are allowed to stash snacks.)

Male Coworker: “Is it odd that every time I hear the word “unmentionables” I think of all the food that I have stashed in different areas of the office, and not of women’s lingerie?”

Me: *bursts out laughing, and walks away*


The Franchise Is Strong With Them

| OH, USA | Bizarre/Silly, Geeks Rule

(I work in a cubicle bullpen. This afternoon I hear from several rows away, with no context whatsoever…)

Man: “Star Wars.”

Woman: *confused* “Star Wars?”

Man: *laughing* “Star Wars! Star Wars!”

Woman: *excited* “Star Wars!”

Man: *agreeing* “Star Wars!”
