Would It Have Been Worse If He’d Been Wearing Peep-Toe Pumps?

Cubicle worker #1: I was just next to what I commonly refer to as a “master blaster” in the men’s john a minute ago…
Cubicle worker #2: Go on…
Cubicle worker #1: I think he barely had a chance to get his pants down before the gates of hell opened and all were consumed with fire and explosions of various forms…
Cubicle worker #1: I was trying not to laugh in the stall next door.
Cubicle worker #2: What the fuck!
Cubicle worker #1: It just goes to show. No matter how nice a person’s shoes, they can still be ugly on the inside. His shoes were very nice, after all. A black patent leather cap toe, I believe.
Cubicle worker #2: Everyone shits.
Cubicle worker #1: I didn’t get too good a look in my haste to retreat, lest I have to endure uncomfortable eye contact subsequently.

Illustrator #1: What is the difference between a libertarian and a Republican?
Illustrator #2: Do you know what a Vulcan is?
Illustrator #1: Uh… I guess, like Mr Spock.
Illustrator #2: Well, a Republican is to a libertarian what a Vulcan is to a Romulan.
Illustrator #1: What the hell is a Romulan?
Illustrator #2: Well, they look like Vulcans, but they are more… Well, on the original show they represented the USSR.
Illustrator #1: So, a libertarian is a communist?
Illustrator #2: Well, no. Okay, do you know what a Centauran is?
Illustrator #1: No, and please don’t tell me.

You Do Have to Appreciate That She’s Willing to Walk a Mile in Someone Else’s Shoes

50-year-old receptionist, about interviewee: I didn’t like her. The interviewers aren’t going to like her. She’s not going to get the job. I can just tell these things.
Recruiter: What did she do that you didn’t like about her?
50-year-old receptionist: Her shoes were too big for her. Probably a half size, maybe even a whole size too big! Ugh! (rolls eyes)

The Mammograms Are on Me!

Boss on phone: What do you mean she’s canceling the meeting? (pause) Delayed? Why? (pause) She has breast cancer? That’s great! (pause) Oh no! I must have cut out, I said “that’s a great tragedy.” (pause) Well, that must be awful. (pause) I see, well, send her my best. (pause) Thank you, bye now. (to entire office) Cancer just saved my ass! Who wants to go for drinks?

African American geek: You’re gonna get gonorrhea.
