ze plastic flatware, it does nothing [Jan. 29th, 2008|02:32 pm]
At work, in the common area, there's a collection of sundry fruits, suitable for random folks to nab and nosh on during the day. This is not out of the ordinary. Out of the ordinary, however, is one of the fruits in question: next to the box of bananas and the crate of apples is a single, lonely-looking pineapple.

Who the hell is this for? Who's out there going through the effort of coring and eating an entire unprocessed pineapple, in cubicle, for a midday snack?

This post is so timely because I'm working on a project discussing the viability of fruit delivery to the office for a company. I'll make note that unprocessed pineapples should be a no.

I would, if I had a big knife handy. After giving it a day to see if anyone else would mind if I took it.

Yeah, like bringing a big knife to work isn't going to cause problems (well, a concerned call from HR at best, a police escort off the premises at worst). :)

Would it be unfeasible to grab the thing by its top and whack it mercilessly against the side of the sink until it exploded, and then sort of gather some of the less explody bits on a little plate and eat them with you fingers?

Like, imagine that your office is a cave, and you're a cave person, and the pineapple is a tasty armadillo that you've managed to catch (because it just sat there blinking stupidly as you approached it with evil in your heart).

OOOOooo! Me totaly! I'd attempt it with my fork, I have a real one at my desk, we keep dish soap in the bathroom.

and if that didn't work I'd bring a knife. I where a backpack to work every day, and sometimes carry my mandolin. I could get a small arsenal in if I wanted too. Also I think we keep a knife around for cake anyway.
