Overheard in the Office:

RX: "Oh, I have this terrible pain in my chest and back when I laugh."

Me: "I'm sorry, I'll try to be unfunny."

I'm sure that was extremely helpful. (I know I laughed when I saw it.)

Think 15 trillion in debt.

Not to mention the other trillions in unfunded liabilities.

Glad I could help.

WV: berplum- the kind of plum left by a bear in the woods.

Has she gone to a doctor to have that looked at? Chest pain is not a laughing matter!

Time for the Three Stooges or Monty Python!

Always makes me laugh.

...at which she LOL'd and screamed "Fail!"...

"You cannot not be funny..."

Wasn't that a Seinfeld episode?

@Goober, the chest and back pain is probably due to strained muscles from all the, hmm, how shall I put this delicately, conversations with Ralph that Bobbi's been having for the past few days.

Been there, done that.

Its a documented fact that Australians have more terms for vomiting than anyone else.

I think there should be a new sit-com based on life there - sort of a cross between an Airplane movie and 'Big Bang Theory' but for gunnies. They wouldn't even need script writers, just tape your live conversations. My mind boggles at your regular discussions (and this from a man who deals daily with Alzheimers patients - and understands most of them).

The pain is probably pleuritic so it's analgesia and maybe a inhalation or nebuliser. But the virus will take its course in its own sweet time.

Hope you all get well soon.

"I'm sorry, I'll try to be unfunny."

Tam unfunny? This, like government intelligence, the customer service line at the IRS, and any button whatsoever marked "help" on the new student loan website, is what we term an Oxymoron, ladies and gents.

Interestingly, when you are handing them big stacks of money and trying to square up five years of unfiled returns, there is no Federal agency friendlier or more helpful than IRS.
