Office Fun

How many points can you get?

Office Dares - always funny...
1.Ignore the first five people who say 'good morning' to you.
2.To signal the end of a conversation, clamp your hands over your ears and grimace.
3.Leave your fly open for one hour. If anyone points it out, say, "Sorry, I really prefer it this way".
4.Walk sideways to the photocopier.
5.While going in an elevator, gasp dramatically each time the doors open.
6.When in elevator with one other person, tap them on the shoulder and pretend it wasn't you.
7.Finish all your sentences with "In accordance with the prophecy..."
8.Don't use any punctuation.
9.Interrupt your conversation with someone by giving a huge dejected sigh.
10.Use your highlighter pen on the computer screen.

1.Say to your boss, "I like your style", wink, and shoot him with double-barreled fingers.
2.Kneel in front of the water cooler and drink directly from the nozzle.
3.Shout random numbers while someone is counting.
4.Every time you get an email, shout ''email''.
5.Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has got over his or her caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
6.Keep hole punching your finger. Each time you do, shout, "dagnamit, it's happened again!". Then do it again.
7. Introduce yourself to a new colleague as "the office bicycle". Then wink and pout.
8. Call I.T. helpdesk and tell them that you can't seem to access any pornography web sites.

1. At the end of a meeting, suggest that, for once, it would be nice to conclude with the singing of the national anthem (extra points if you actually launch into it yourself).
2. Walk into a very busy person's office and while they watch you with growing irritation, turn the light switch on/off 10 times.
3. For an hour, refer to everyone you speak to as "Dave".
4. Announce to everyone in a meeting that you "really have to go do a number two".
5. After every sentence, say 'Mon' in a really bad Jamaican accent. As in: "The report's on your desk, Mon." Keep this up for one hour.
6. In a meeting or crowded situation, slap your forehead repeatedly and mutter, "Shut up, all of you just shut up!"
7. At lunchtime, get down on your knees and announce, "As God is my witness, I'll never go hungry again!"
8. Repeat the following conversation 10 times to the same person: "Do you hear that?" "What?" "Never mind, it's gone now."
9. Present meeting attendees with a cup of coffee and biscuit; smash biscuit with your fist.
10. During the course of a meeting, slowly edge your chair towards the door.
11. As often as possible, skip rather than walk.
12. Ask people what sex they are. Laugh hysterically after they answer.


"Mmmmmm. Floor pie."

Ken is the comedian around here. I am just the straight man. And you know, when people meet him they think he is quiet and shy. HA! I always said the only man I would ever leave him for is Robin Williams because he is the only one funnier than Ken.

LOL!!! Love it.

How many points would you get for sitting in the corner and cleaning an invisible rifle while mumbling incoherently to yourself?

Or calling in sick with the excuse that your feeling "disgruntled"?

Or everytime you pass the security camera, look straight into it and say "This is Lynn Johnson, Channel 9, Eyewitness News, back to you at the studio Tom"

Or, again with the security camera, conning 3 of your co-workers to perform the Pepto-Bismol line-dance.

Or loudly exclaiming "Hey! Here's the baking powder... what did I just put in the Biscuits?"

that is sooo great!!!

I had to copy it for Frank, he wants to sent it to his collegues...
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
