The pen used to be mightier, but then Jeorg built a sword launcher.

Old man O'Malley had worked down at the brewery for years, but one day he just wasn't paying attention and he tripped on the walkway and fell over into the beer vat and drowned. The foreman thought it should be his job to inform the Widow O'Malley of her old man's death. He showed up at the front door and rang the bell. When she came to the door, he said, "I'm sorry to tell you, but your poor husband passed away at work today when he fell into the vat and drowned." She wept and covered her face with her apron and after a time, between sobs, she asked, "Tell me, did he suffer?" "Knowing Brian O'Malley as well as I did, I don't think so," said the foreman, "He got out three times to go to the men's room."

Never mess with people who buy ink by the barrel.

It sounds like there was a stirrer in the vat that wasn't turned off for maintenance.

Better that than a vat of mighty penises.

DIC Australia's website said the company produced inks for magazines, packaging and other printing products as well as metal decoration for foods and drinks.

I guess he wanted to make his mark before he died.

/Got nuthin'
 
2017-12-07 10:06:19 AM  
Did he get out three times to pee?

/Wait, that's not how that joke goes.

We'll miss the guy.  He was really dedicated to the business.  He really threw himself into the work.

He drowned in ink? Well, well, well. Guess they'll just have to write him off as a blot on their reputation.

Sources say his family are feeling blue about it, citing a dark time....
