So, you think your office fridge stinks?

April 25th, 2010 · 96 comments

Well, maybe all you need is a little perspective.

Kelly in Dallas spotted this notice at a metaphysical bookstore in Lewisville, Texas. Apparently, she says, the last time the fridge was defrosted, “they discovered several owl carcasses that were being stored there by the store’s resident Native American healer guy.” (Be careful, this fridge scares easily.)

DO NOT Approach Refridgerator [sic] with knives, screwdrivers or other sharp objects.  NOT for carcass storage  Thank you!

Meanwhile, Belinda assures us that both bunny and cow parts were indeed claimed by her coworkers before the boss’s deadline. (“Only in Wisconsin!” she says.)

To whomever:  Please remove the Rabbit carcasses and Beef livers from this freezer. They will be removed and disposed of if not taken home by this Friday; April 23rd. What's wrong with some people??

If you’ve ever seen the TV show Mythbusters, you won’t find this fridge note from their set too surprising…

No rancid pig tongues; No human body parts filled with noodles

But Becky in Portland, Oregon was definitely surprised when she discovered the warning on the hospital breakroom’s freezer door wasn’t a non sequitur.

Peeled bananas in the freezer = gross!

    Human body parts are okay as long as they are noodle-free.

    Also, please guard the modesty of your bananas and let them retain their peels whilst chillin’ in the freezer.

    I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen that same “Human Food Only” sign on the Mythbusters show i.e. I think that is the actual sign from a fridge there. The noodles & body parts line might relate to a segment in which Grant used noodles in a mold to simulate a human brain …

      Sure, it should be in a bag, but the note objects to the presence of the peeled banana, and not the lack of a bag. It stresses the feature of being peeled, not being unbagged, suggesting that the author thinks the the status as peeled is the problem.

      Am I he only one here who is offended by the discriminatory inclusion of all cytotoxins on the banned list?

      Surely, there should be allowances made depending on whether the specific cytotoxin is antibody-dependent or independent.

      TOS,
      While I complement you on the sentiment behind your willingness to make allowances for some cytotoxins, this sort of well-intentioned gastronomic multiculturalism could take us well past the edge of that shopworn figure of speech, the “slippery slope”.

      Let the wrong cytotoxins into your fridge and The Knickerbockers won’t be the only ones singing Lyse, Lyse (A-breakin’My Heart).

      Based on the potential for a massive, Romero-like level of cell membrane rupture due to uncontrolled antibody-independent C3-convertase, ethnic neighborhoods could witness the creation of actually slippery “slopes”.
      A large drop in dine-in business would be guaranteed, and the added reduced take-out trade could well put some victualers out of business.
      Moo Goo-ey Guy Pan jokes would be staple fare for Leno and Letterman.

      Antibody-dependent or independent ?
      Please, just say no to any from Column “A” OR “Column “B”.

    Several years back someone at work, let’s call her “Lonelybatshitcrazy,” found a dead bird outside of our building, brought it in and stored it in the freezer all day until she could bring it home.

      Thanks, Claw. For those of you who can’t make it to that Sheep Shangri-la, known as Wisconsin, but crave that “I just died in the wool” sensation, here’s some advice.

      1. Stay away from the factory farms. The sheep there are pumped so full of chemicals that they are virtual zombies. If all you are after is mechanical sex with an unresponsive, sad-eyed and bleating partner, you’re better off staying home and shagging your wife.

      2. Free-range sheep are a different kettle of fish, altogether. In addition to still having their regular estrus cycles, free-rangers are still thinking clearly. They view their vaginas as tools of female empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality and sensuality.

      There’s none of that “putting her hind legs into the top of your Wellington boots” nonsense. And these liberated ewes don’t need to be pinned against a fence or placed face first over a steep cliff, either.

      There aren’t enough superlatives in the human languages to sum up the sensations you’ll feel when it’s just ewe and you: two like-minded beings expressing their affection for one another, physically, in a relaxed, natural environment.

      3. Don’t mention any of this to your wife. She’s just not that into ewe.

    I came into work one day to find my boss closing the breakroom freezer and saying “Oh, there’s a dead owl in here, so don’t be alarmed.” He had seen it get hit by a car on his way into work and he stopped to pick it up, thinking he might save it. When it died en route, he decided to preserve it in case one of the many local nature organizations wanted to study it.

    I live in an area where there are more owls to “study,” both living and dead, than there are in your average spooky movie. Why he thought they would be interested in this one I have no idea, except that he was not from this area.

    Having said that, I am not from this area either but you don’t have to live here for very long to know that the locals (and the contract workers from the neighboring state) will eat ANYTHING, including roadkill. These are the people who asked me, when I came in cursing because I had hit a deer (damaging my car) on my way in to work, if I picked it up and put it in my trunk for future use. So if you have any kind of dead wildlife, regardless of its method of demise, the breakroom freezers at any business around here are not the best hiding places for them.

      In Michigan the police keep deer hunting tags in their cars, because a reputable processor won’t work on an untagged (i.e. poached) carcass.

      If you hit a deer “highway hunting” you get first dibs after the cop tags it, but you can bet that there will be a guy or two that will pull over right away and be glad to take it off your hands.

      There are about 50,000 car-deer accidents in the state per year.

    For the first 2 years I worked at a veterinary clinic, we only had one fridge. It was not unusual to have your sack lunch right next to a urine sample, bag of blood, or animal body part. Just about the time I finally started to get used to it, the health department did an inspection. Funny thing – apparently that’s against code. :P I’m betting most of these signs have more to do with fear of fines than fear of nasty stuff in the freezer.

    I sometimes think that those Native American Healer Guys use their status as a convenient excuse to get away with crazy shit. Like the time my Resident Advisor, who was 1/8th Apache, cleansed my spirit by sodomizing my innocent freshman ass. I don’t care if the lube was sage-scented, that’s not how you smudge somebody.

      My grandma always called two bananas, “a threesome.”

      (She obviously couldn’t count very well.)

    Nobody ever really warmed up to the office fridge. He never really had much to say and his cold demeanor didn’t help. Nobody had a real problem with him, everybody thought he was cool enough but he would spend most of the day in the break room humming quietly to himself. When ever somebody got him to open up he could be downright icy.

    What they didn’t know is that this refrigerator had been through a lot. Most of the appliances you find on craiglist have a story to tell, but this eggshell colored GE was suffering from post traumatic stress disorder and would fly off into wild hysterics whenever it was approached with edged objects.

    It started when this fridge was deployed in a national muffler and brake shop. As we all know these shops are generally staffed by people who think they’re mechanically inclined but often lack the skills to perform anything other than rudimentary parts replacement. That doesn’t stop them from getting creative.

    One day this fridge was doing a dandy job keeping sandwiches, sodas and the occasional 12 pack of light beer cold when suddenly its in-door water/ice dispenser stopped working. Instead of calling a certified technician out to do the work, the manager decided he could fix it. After three hours of rough surgery with improper tools the manager replaced the brass water pump, that had been gummed up with lime, with an electronic fuel pump intended for a Ford F-150 with the 351 Cleveland V8. This seemed to work but the voltage didn’t match and shortly thereafter the compressor shorted out. Once again the manager went to work with his brutal tool kit, this time replacing the factory spec compressor with something off of an obsolete window air conditioning unit. Racks were replaced with crudely welded shelves, and insane amounts of industrial epoxy were used to attach them. The high gloss eggshell finish was applied after the corporate office mandated the refrigerator be replaced with a HotPoint in accordance with SOP. It clashed with the handles.

    The fridge didn’t even know it was being replaced until one day some doped up hippies came in, handed the manager $30 and a quarter bag, and strapped the fridge to the roof of a Plymouth Reliant K.

    Yeah, this fridge had issues. And it was best to let him live in peace.

    Also, I don’t know what gets on my nerves more, people who add an extra D when they spell “refrigerator,” or people who leave out the D in “fridge.” I had a roommate who was always leaving us notes about the contents of the “frig” and it made me snicker every time.

      If you want to know what’s in the frig, you’ll have to poke around in there yourself.

    It must have taken a while to collect “several” owl carcasses. I mean, it’s not as though they hang around in flocks.

      Indeed. Owls don’t hang out in flocks. They hang out in parliaments, and you’d better watch out — they’re gainin’ on ya!

    Yikes… Carcasses in the fridge… Eww.

    But the peeled banana in the freezer thing, nothing wrong with that. We do that all the time at home, so we can put them in a blender to make delicious ice creams and smoothies!
