We do hope that you enjoy your weekly dose of stoopidity as much as we enjoy writing it! First up this week, a story melvan wrote about working at Pizza Hut: "A Short Essay (with a long title) about Working at Pizza Hut" The short version: Sometimes it sucks. Sometimes it doesn't. Like on payday. The slightly longer version: OK, some background. The make table is where we make the pizzas (hence the name "make table"). In this table are about 20 pans of different sizes for the sauces, cheese, and toppings. Health laws require us to flip these pans every night when business slows down - so the stuff on the bottom of the old pan goes to the top of the new pan and it all gets used. Then there's less chance of food spoiling. Cool, eh? Anyway, this has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of what I'm going to write - except that one night while I was flipping these pans, one of the other cooks decided to re-write a certain song: "Someone's flipping, Lord, Kumbayah...Someone's flipping, Lord, Kumbayah...." This particular co-worker of mine has a - er, um, STRANGE sense of humor. Never a dull moment when he's around. A particular favorite pastime of his while at work is making fun of any song that comes on the radio - or saying things like "You know, I sang backup on this album....Yeah, me and Bob Dylan go waaaaay back...." He's also a drummer in a band, so that might have something to do with his personality - when you beat on things all the time, it's gotta do something to your brain.... Just my two cents...and some of your mom's meatloaf - sorry, another Pizza Hut inside joke....

Marvin of 41 the other day my friend got a job at the dollar store and everyone made fun of her. she was not ashamed however, she said, "Nothing bad has ever happened to anyone at the dollar store." The next day, a dollar store employee was found completely duct taped in the storage room of the store and all the money had VANiSHED!!!! My friend quit. --Indiegyrl A response to FME #39, in which we stated that the fruit bats died: I had a pet fruitbat, but he died. To say I didn't love him, I'd say I lied. I'm sad he's gone, but my heart will mend. Cause when we played hide'n seek, He'd always get me "in the end".
