As this sign from a Montgomery, Alabama breakroom shows, “PopCorn Users” remain one of the most persecuted groups in the workplace today.

      Poor Deborah…she probably has a witty retort to this PAN, but considering that the PAN writer does not know how to properly spell “popcorn” Deborah would clearly be debating a half-wit.

      A memo went out at a fomrer work place of mine in which all employees would be penalized for using the office microwave to pop popcorn….So I asked, “May we use the coffee pot then to pop popcorn?” It was intended as a joke to lighten the situation, but that afternoon, a second memo went out to all employees that under no circumstances could any office appliance be used to pop popcorn “of any kind”. The absurdity of the entire thing was that higher-ups never said we could not have popcorn…just we could not use office appliances to pop it….

    WTF is a “popcorn user”, how do you use popcorn? I thought you just ate the stuff, but clearly I’m behind the times. Do you smoke it, snort it, or what? Then again, there may be other uses for the warm, soft, buttery product, as shown in that timeless classic, “Debbie Does Popcorn”. Yep, especially Debbie.

      Speaking as a Certified PopCorn User(tm), I object to the laxity with which people are assigning the term “PopCorn User” to people who CLEARLY are not genuine Certified PopCorn Users(tm).

      In response to WTF is a “popcorn user”, how do you use popcorn?

      All you need to do is enroll in my ten week online Certified PopCorn User(tm) training course, for the limited time offering price of $269.95. During this course, the protected trade secrets of PopCorn Use will be revealed to you.

      Do not be taken in by people offering knock-off PopCorn User (NOT tm) courses — proper training makes all the difference.

      Mishee, you’re right! Especially Deborah just doesn’t have much respect for her old man. See, her ole’ Pop got his nickname since he’s got the biggest corn field in the county. The corn field has been affectionately called “The Microwave” by folks in the county, due to how hot and dry it gets in a midsummer drought.

      But anyways. I digress.

      Especially Deborah was supposed to tend to her Pop and the corn field, but on those hot summer days she started leaving PopCorn out in the sun by himself. Rumor has it that she left him unattended out in that Microwave, went inside, and started rifling through his wallet. She really wanted to skip town, and no southern gentleman would take her the way she was treating that ole’ PopCorn of hers. At any rate, she would just leave the poor old man out there – unattended – and of course with that heat he started to burn up – no sun screen in sight.

      Especially Deborah quickly became the county’s black sheep, using her ole’ PopCorn for his money while allowing him to burn.

      How this note ended up in an office building is the confusing part of the matter. It should have been left out in the cornfield (aka The Microwave) for Especially Deborah to find before she could think to leave PopCorn out there again.

    Okay, there’s hate against microwave popcorn. I even saw the sign at the school I went to (on one oven). After having to smell so many nasty meals being cooked (especially fish–something that half the class had even complained to the guy who ate it every day about) I simply found a microwave without the sign. I don’t really care ‘cuz our class learned an important lesson: Don’t ban a single item if it isn’t that single item that’s the problem.

    If what you really mean is “No stinky foods, including but not limited to: Popcorn, fish, etc.” just come out and say what you really mean. Of course, nobody wants to do this because they realize it’s just a big slippery slope to hell, and because people who hate popcorn are more vocal than those that hate fish, we get popcorn signs. *SIGH*

    PS – If you’re suggesting it’s banned due to some form of allergic reaction, consider the fact that we had Asian students that enjoyed microwaving their peanut based items… MMMM peanut oil splashes.

    Just sayin’, is all…

      I’ve been exposed to plenty of offensive ruminations working in offices most of my life and I have to say that nothing is more consistently offensive than scorched microwave popcorn. Unless you break a fluorescent tube it’s really hard to duplicate the intensity and range of popcorn fumes.

      This is particularly true of flavored corns and the risk of scorching increases as the price of the popcorn decreases. High end pop corn products tend to cook in the designated time where as low end products seem to require extra time.

      Fish isn’t that bad if it’s not cheap crap. If somebody nukes one of those Mrs. Paul’s carp cakes it’s going to stink but a little tilapia or some fresh grouper isn’t so bad. Of course pop corn lingers longer than fish so pop corn is worse. It is also more common.

    The popcorn had grown sick and tired of being used. It was one thing when people used microwaving a bag of popcorn as a convenient excuse to step away from the desk but entirely another when popcorn was used to make the Pringles jealous. If you want to eat the Pringles, just eat them, don’t nuke a bag of popcorn only to leave it sitting in the microwave while you cavort with those sour cream and onion flavored crisps. It just wasn’t fair. Popcorn can be flavored too.

    Also not fair was the way some people, like Deborah, would exceed the cooking time by as much as two minutes. Why, Deborah, why? Are those five unpopped kernels really that important? Or do you hide your daily bowel movement behind the guise of preparing a snack? Everybody poops, you know. Maybe you think the smell of scorched popcorn hides the odor wafting from the women’s room. It doesn’t.

    Well this time the popcorn had had it. It would be used and abused no more. It wouldn’t be easy but popcorn decided to snatch a page out of Tina Turner’s life story and make a run for it the minute it was left unattended. Where would it go? Popcorn had no idea but it was not staying here. Maybe it would end up eaten by pigeons, perhaps it would be strung on to a Christmas tree. Either way it would be appreciated and that’s really all anybody wants. Even Deborah. Especially Deborah.

      All this discussion of fart-inducing foods, and nothing about beer? I think the best thing would be a plate of beans, cabbage, broccoli, pepperoncinis, hard-boiled eggs, and wash it down with a lot of skunky beer. This is the sort of thing you do in hopes that you can get someone to break up with you. Or ensure that you never get invited to another birthday party for a one-year old.

      The Pabst brewery was maybe three quarters of a mile from me (when I was a kid) in neighboring Newark, NJ. Anheuser-Busch still has a brewery in Newark.
      Ballentine was once brewed there as well…the Ballentine Mansion is a museum now, I think (also in Newark, NJ).

    What I don’t get is why the note-writer suddenly went from PopCorn to popcorn at the end of the note. Did they finally realize they were spelling it like a wanker and were just too lazy to go back and fix the rest of the PopCorns?

    I think the smell of burnt popcorn is much better than the smell of dirty crotch. There was a woman at a company i worked at years ago that had to be fired because she made the whole building smell like month old, rotting fish. We should have put up a note: “Please wash your private areas, ESPECIALLY DEBORAH! do not forget, do not make excuses, stay in the shower until it’s clean!!!”

      I co-worker at one of my previous jobs told me she actually had to complain because this one big, fat dude who worked in our dept smelled of scrotum (I wonder how a lezzie knew that smell, but whatev….)

      I also had another co-worker at a different job tell me that her husband had to talk to one of his employees cause the guy came out of the bathroom with shit on his clothes.

      Both of these incidents took place in Portland, OR… which just goes to show… well, you all know my feelings on Oregon.
