We have a lively office culture. We joke. We kid. It’s fun. And one of my fellow employees, who acts the part of office clown was insisting that he was the source of much inspiration.
I pointed out to him that he was inspiring in the same way that a bran muffin is inspiring.
His reply, “Thanks for making the obvious poop joke.”
I couldn’t leave that alone. “And therein lies the difference. My poop joke was subtle and well-crafted.”
And we went back and forth for a while until the whole thing just kind of petered out.
