I See Your Attempt at Humor, and I Refuse to Acknowledge It

Deskie #1: What’s that smell? Sulfur? Rotten eggs?
Deskie #2: I have it figured out: It’s Halloween, and all these girls are walking around with nothing covering areas which haven’t been exposed in public since last Halloween.
Deskie #1: I don’t get why that is relevant.

I’m Not an Animal.

Woman in elevator lobby to man: Did you eat peanut butter?
Man: Peanut butter?
Woman: You smell like peanut butter.
Man: Um, I had some hazelnut coffee…
Woman: Oh! Hazelnut coffee!!
(elevator arrives, man gets on elevator, woman remains in lobby)
Man, muttering to self: Peanut butter? Peanut butter?

9AM Work Stinks

I was sitting at the reception desk in my office and the main door leading to the hallway and elevators was propped open. I could not see into the hallway, but I could hear a man and a woman talking as they waited for the elevator. Eventually the elevator door opened and one of them got on. As soon as the door closed the other person not only let out a huge sigh of relief but also the biggest fart I have ever heard. I thought I was going to die I laughed so hard.
