Crack Me Up- the after school edition

Yesterday the office conversation somehow wandered into the topic of "gangs." Where the various gangs came from, where they've settled, how they've grown, etc. Ppal said, I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the Crips (or the Bloods- one of them) got started in Bluefield, West Virginia. Knowing this to be wrong, I suggested that maybe he was thinking of the Apple Dumpling Gang.

Today at the end of the day, ChickenBob came in stating that he needed a "manly" plant for his house and it had to fit into a "Number 10 pot." Trying not to laugh secretary (who has no idea what he means by number 10 pot) says "what about a cactus." ponder. ponder. "No, I don't like cactuses." I realize it's cacti but he teaches physed- what can you do? So together without prior consultation we instructed him to go shopping for a "Number 8 Philodendron"..."be sure it's a number 8..." I wish I could be a fly on the plant shop wall.

Tomorrow we're going to share the "take a box of frozen corn and lay it in the plant" technique to stimulate plant growth.

You are flat-out wicked! that poor man. He's never going to ask you for advice again.

Tell him to plant a dead goldfish with the philodendron. You can get "feeders" at the pet store.

I have a black thumb. I can wilt plastic ivy.
