A Fart in the Wind

Our United Way Campaign continues.

Today's event:
A Chilli-Off.

Various people in the office
have made chilli
which will be judged today at lunch.

Boss #2 is a judge.
He was trying to recruit more judges
and asked the other partners in our group
to join him.

They all turned and asked me
why I wasn't judging.

You want the real reason?
Yes, they said.
Well, then ...

If I judged the chilli competition,
I told them,
the IT Department would have to
move my computer to the bathroom
cuz that's where I'd be all afternoon.

They nodded sagely.
Oh, they said.

I think we should be improving
the ventilation system.

After everyone in the office has chilli for lunch,
we're gonna need it.
There's gonna be some serious
trumpet blasting later today.
