Cube rat #1: So tell me, Bob, you’re a col­lege bas­ket­ball of­fi­cial. Which school in the Big 12 has the worst be­haved stu­dents.?

Cube rat #1: Bay­lor is a Bap­tist col­lege… You would think they would be bet­ter be­haved. Cube rat #2: Well, they are just frus­trat­ed be­cause they don’t get any… (long pause) cham­pi­onships.

1PM Lunch

Co-work­er #1: How was your lunch?
Co-work­er #2: It was okay. We had an old Greek wait­ress. I did­n’t care for her too much.
Co-work­er #1: Was it the fact that she was old or Greek?
Co-work­er #2: It was a com­bi­na­tion. Greeks are a weird peo­ple.
