A holiday chuckle just for you

A couple weeks ago a friend told me that she loves it when I write about the newspaper because it reminds her that some people work in offices with people they like. 🙂

Well, today I have just the thing!  For the past several months, I’ve been writing down the funny things that my co-workers say.  I happen to work with an exceptionally funny and interesting group of people, so even though I’ve only been doing it for about four months, I had multiple pages of funniness recorded.

Today, as their Christmas gift, I gave everyone in the newsroom a copy of what I had collected.

Many of the quotes are only funny in context, knowing the personalities of the people involved.  But I’ve pulled out a few that I think transcend that.  I present to you the Caledonian-Record’s 2012 “Notable Quotables”.

  • “Remember Johnny Appleseed?  Well, I’m like him.  I’m Little Jimmy Joy Seeds.  I travel around spreading my Joy Seeds everywhere I go.”
  • “I’m picking up what you’re putting down.”
  • (from our publisher) “You’re all very good, but I honestly wish I had two more of me.”

Felix Baumgartner, aka Splatty Dude

  • (from our court reporter) “Melinda looks really good in handcuffs. I have to give her that.”
  • (from our K-Cup supply man) “Strong, yet smooth. Now that I’m done describing myself, let’s talk about K-Cup coffee.”
  • “I feel like if Steve Jobs can come up with the tablet, he can effectively come up with a better way to deliver babies.”
  • “A guy who’s willing to jump from 23 miles up is going to come to a splatty end sooner rather than later. He is a bug on the windshield in celestial terms.”
  • “Any conversation that begins ‘I feel’ between two dudes isn’t going anywhere.”
  • “Instead of talking about our feelings, men play fantasy sports.”
  • (on Dec. 20, the day before the Mayan Apocalypse) “Shelly, what’s the forecast for this weekend?”
    Shelly – “Fire and brimstone.”

Dearest readers, YOU are my Christmas miracle.  Thank you for your presence and your love.  I hope you have a joyous holiday.

All my love,
