We need a card or something.

Something, like, "Congratulations on creating a new meme!"

And a cake. I suppose we need a cake.

Racism is often the mirror we cover up to avoid looking at ourselves too closely.

I just turn my mirror so that it no longer faces away from me. However, I do this so that I can observe people who approach my cubicle so that I am no longer startled by them.

Is that racist?

/I forgot the original topic.

How I know I live in Sisterfarkistan:

I drove by a local realtor's office yesterday. He usually has some dumbass right-wing message or other up. Yesterday, his sign said "9-11-2012 WE WILL NEVER FORGET"

Which I didn't get until I heard something on NPR about it being the anniversary of the Benghazi attack.Because we all know that's the first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions 9-11.

Yeah, I hate having my back to the opening of my cubicle.  I can't stand people walking up behind me.  I think I must have been a samurai in a past life. Or maybe I was a horse.

whatsupchuck: The headline is totally at odds with the provided link.  Is that the joke?


Yes. Yesterday the same meme got posted about the Colorado recall over gun control. Subby didn't realize that NPR did do a story on it because he didn't sort the search results by date.

Yeah that's what it was, he just accidentally forgot to search by date. It wasn't at all the result of the rush to submit another gun nut paranoid fantasy about the lame stream media not covering pro gun stories. Because if there's one thing Fark needed it was more gun threads.

It's great this is a thing now. So great. Just great.

In order to increase morale, the company I work for recently announced that we no longer work in cubicles.  We now work in "productivity pods".

/Still hates when people sneak up behind her "productivity pod"
//Crickets in the office drive me crazy.  Woodpeckers outside the building are worse, though.

Ah, thanks.  But if stupid Fark headlines are allowed to become memes of their own then I fear for the bandwidth capacity of the intertubes.

I'm just waiting for NPR runs a story about some vaguely political topic like climate change which just happens to discuss crickets, because that will be gold. And green. Green, and gold.

It's far easier to spy on workers when no walls separate them.

However, if you have a good group of people around you, it's better than cubicles.

The British use the term cubicle to describe what Americans would call a bathroom stall.  I wonder how funny it sounds to them when they hear an American say "I work in a cubicle."

You'd think they'd at least let you schedule your morale-improvement beatings around client appointments instead.
