The condensed directions: Read the cue, react to the cue. There's no right answer, no research required. I cite sources where applicable but it's all about coming up with creative answers. Winners are picked in a week.

The number one rule? Have FUN!!!

In Your Desk

Now What?: Write what comes next.
"I found this in your desk. You're fired!"
Explain why this is in your desk and why you shouldn't be fired for it.

Time for a Winner! (12/10/09)
Boss: "I found this in your desk. You're fired!"

Employee: "You can't fire me based on my religion. And anyway, it's just a voodoo doll. It doesn't mean anything, it's just a stress reliever."

B: "IT'S GOT MY NAME ON IT!"

E: "How do you know that's you? There are millions of people named Snordgren. You don't know."

B: "Do you think I'm stupid?!"

E: "If you're so worried about the doll, you must believe in it...so... maybe you should consider stopping your yelling and going back to your office. I have my own work to do."

B: "I, um.. um... (crosses himself) we'll talk about this later."

E: "I thought so."
Winner: TMC @ Return to Rural (@returntorural)
Why: She always comes up with such great names. Snordgren? Plus I think throwing around the whole discrimination idea is a great way to get someone off your back with that pesky threat or termination.

"Oops, grabbed my son's bag.
I don't bring condoms to work--
You always have them."

I was looking for a phone book in your desk, and I found two different sets of Company Ledgers. I have called for an audit, and.... You are fired.

Awww, Can't you take a joke? Just because you got caught in my web doesn't make it not funny. If you don't want to look stupid, don't go poking around in my stuff. I'm sorry no one explained to you what a Chinese finger trap is.

Ma'am, I love this desk where I've sat!
So that thing--well, let me explain that.
When stressed-out I get,
I just have to pet
My friend in my desk--my dead rat.

Principal: **Holds up handcuffs**
Me: "We are learning about community helpers in class this week!! You always say kids learn best when they have tangible objects to help them make connections. I promise I have never used them on any of the kids!! And the Cardboard box jail cell was THEIR idea!!"
