I Meant the Toast­er with the Smi­ley Face on It

En­gi­neer #1: I’m go­ing to head back to where I’ve been work­ing. No­body knows where it is. I call it my hap­py place.
En­gi­neer #2: Take a muf­fin!
En­gi­neer #1: Nice! I just want half, though.
En­gi­neer #2: Don’t take half! Take the whole thing. [To En­gi­neer #3] Stick the rest of that muf­fin in your hap­py place.
En­gi­neer #3: That’s dis­gust­ing.

10AM Work on Prints

En­gi­neer: How much longer will you be us­ing those prints?
Safe­ty Man­ag­er: Five min­utes.
En­gi­neer: What if I bor­row them for three min­utes and then give them back to you?
Safe­ty Man­ag­er: I’d say yes, but you won’t give them back in three min­utes. So, no, you can’t bor­row them.
En­gi­neer: You’re so much like your dad, it’s not even fun­ny.
