Like “Queer”

Cowork­er #1 (talk­ing about the new­ly de­signed of­fi­cial com­put­er desk­top wall­pa­pers): I don’t like the word “ze­ro” in the wall­pa­per. It’s like such a neg­a­tive num­ber!
Cowork­er #2: It’s not neg­a­tive if it’s used in a pos­i­tive way.

Jen­ny Talia and Jenn Italia Were Hap­py to Hear It

Em­ploy­ee #1: We can’t have two peo­ple named jenn on our team! Peo­ple will get con­fused as to who is as­sist­ing them.
Em­ploy­ee #2: Well, what should we call them then?
Em­ploy­ee #3/jenn: What if we just go by young jenn and old jenn?
Em­ploy­ee #4/jenn: I don’t want to be known as old jenn! How about big jenn and tiny jenn.
Em­ploy­ee #3/jenn: It dosen’t re­al­ly mat­ter to me.
Em­ploy­ee #2: Big jenn kind of re­minds me of big ben. Are you go­ing to start talk­ing in a british ac­cent?
Em­ploylee #4/jenn: Oh good heav­ens, no! What if we just go by tj for tiny jenn and bj for… Oh. Um… Maybe I’m okay with old jenn af­ter all.
Em­ploy­ee #3/jenn: [un­con­trol­lable laugh­ter].
Em­ploy­ee #2: I don’t get it.
Em­ploy­ee #1: On that note, I think our clients can just get over it… Jenn and jenn it is!
