You Don’t See East­ern Eu­ro­pean Women Bang­ing in­to Ta­bles

Cowork­er #1, af­ter bang­ing in­to side of ta­ble while round­ing the cor­ner: You know what, if I had whiskers, I would­n’t have this prob­lem.

My cats have bal­ance. Whiskers would make me bal­anced.
Cowork­er #2, laugh­ing: Yeah, whiskers would solve the prob­lem.
