but won’t the $700 billon bailout help replenish the food i’ve stolen?

If I get another stimulus check, I’ll put half of it towards buying that office lunch for the week.

oh, and your lunch was too!

not only has the DOW lost points, but so has your originality.
the crabs infested, urine soaked, yeast ridden unitard is yours. you’ve earned it. really.
at least we’ve gotten this out of the way early, frankie.
Oct 23, 2008 at 4:09 pm rating: 9
Hold me falcon. I’m scared of what this world is coming to. The Dow dropped. Peoples lunches are getting eaten. JC311 is roaming the PAN pages in the unitard dropping tired jokes. I think I smell urine and K.Y.

wow, only 600 points? this note must’ve been written on one of those “good” days we rarely see anymore.
this is all part of that big package we call a “Global Climate Crysis”
Oct 23, 2008 at 4:17 pm rating: 9
so, when the market recovers, i can resume swiping food?
Oct 23, 2008 at 4:19 pm rating: 22
*wonders if the lunch in question was left in the fridge for more than 45 minutes*
Oct 23, 2008 at 4:21 pm rating: 0
You’re not looking at the big picture. I didn’t eat your lunch at all; I simply liquidated fixed assets and reallocated the nutritional value of your meal. In this volatile market your lunch wasn’t positioned to withstand the impending crisis.

i dont steal food because im poor, i do it because i like the thrill of the chase.
first i stalk my prey- today it was a bbq chicken pizza that had been in the freezer since yesterday. i saw it, it saw me. it knew what i wanted. it wanted me to want it.
then, i checked on it, let it know i was there. every time i got up to get coffee, i would peek in the freezer to make sure it hadn’t been eaten yet. after my third cup, i coverd it up with a box of Jeno’s pizza rolls to keep other would-be theives away.
this is where things get technical. see, you cant just waltz into the lunchroom at noon and steal a lunch…everyone is in there. they are watching. so i went in at 1145, quickly pulled the pizza out of the freezer, unwrapped it and popped it in the microwave. i stood there the entire time.
i threw the trash away in someone’s personal trash can to further spread the evidence and then i ate at my desk.
the power is still flowing through my veins, i am on top of the office lunch world.

You shouldn’t steal food because:
1.That’s not mayonnaise on the sandwich I left, it’s manyonnaise.

One of my boyfriend’s dorm-mates in college used to get so sick of people eating his ice cream in the communal fridge that he … into the ice cream carton when there was enough room.
You can fill in the … yrselves.
Oct 23, 2008 at 8:50 pm rating: 2
The problem with that act, is that he can also no longer eat the ice cream – unless he’s a sicko.
Oct 23, 2008 at 8:53 pm rating: 4
i think we’re safe in determining that this guy is a sicko. he … into ice cream!!!
Oct 24, 2008 at 12:47 am rating: 1
Yeah- Any sane person would’ve grabbed a spoon and ate the whole carton at once.
Oct 24, 2008 at 1:40 am rating: 5
Maybe that stuff tastes better frozen. It’s usually served warm… and it’s better for you than ice cream, what with all that protein and half the sugar.

Why did they need to write a note? Just have Please not steal NOT YOURS’s lunches anymore, no matter what DOW drops.
Oct 23, 2008 at 6:01 pm rating: 1
I really hate being the scapegoat of all the problems today. Sub-prime mortgage collapse, inflated rates on bank-to-bank lending, consumer confidence waning, the list goes on and on. So, I do not need to have the theft of lunches added to the pile. I have enough shit on my plate as it is.
Nobody ever gives me credit during the good times. No “atta boy, DJ!” when I soar to new heights. I feel I am taken for granted and I am sick of it. My friends NASDAQ and S&P feel the same way, so we are here to tell you “no more”!
Everyone needs to stop your whining and put on your big boy pants and take responsibility for the messes you create.
