12PM Lunch

Engineer: So, did you enjoy your Cinco de Mayo?
Secretary: Um. I was in Rhode Island for the weekend…
Engineer: Yeah, so?
Secretary: Ever been?
Engineer: Yeah, couple of times… what’s your point?
Secretary: Heh. Rhode Island is like the white-bread capital, at least the part where I go is.
Engineer: Okaayyy… so there was no Cinco de Mayo celebration?
Secretary: Dude, lemme put it this way for ya: It’s so damn white up there, they have white gardeners. Mexicans are like freakin’ nonexistant up there. And don’t even get me started on the nonexistance of black people. Hell, the last time I saw a black person while I was up there was the one we brought with us…and she kept singin’ “Massa got me workin’ ” just to freak the rest of the whities out.

Engineer #2: So you just put three quarters of a gallon of bad milk back in the fridge?
Engineer #1: I told Hal* this morning and he said he’d take care of it, but obviously never did, so now whoever used it is gonna end up sick in bed tomorrow.
Architect: That’s ok, it’s supposed to rain tomorrow.

Grad student: OK.
Japanese professor: I am well trained in the art of the ninja.
