10AM Order Book

Our sister site has been collected into Overheard in New York, the book. It’s a collection of the hilarious and horrendous material from the site, as well as a bunch of stuff we saved just for the book.

It’s perfect reading for the commute to the office, and a great way to kill time from 9 to 5. You can order it here.

10AM Work on Prints

Engineer: How much longer will you be using those prints?

Engineer: You’re so much like your dad, it’s not even funny.
