How’s that for a group effort?

January 25th, 2013 · 57 comments

Erin in Los Angeles says it all started with a simple “No staples, please.” Then the whole office got involved.

    Some of those people forgot the please. The animals.

    I would’ve put one up with a picture of Staples’ logo and added “We’re contracted with Office Depot.”

    And with my current kick there would’ve been “More Rufus Sewell, please. (Cause he’s hot.)”

    Also, I would love to work with people who have this type of a sense of humor. I would do anything including being their Official Staple Puller Outer.

      Hey, now… not every resident of the zoo is an unrepentant poo-flinger, yaknow. I was happy to see that, on at least one of the absent-mindedly rude versions, someone helpfully scribbled in an afterthought “Please”.

      The animals may not be perfect, but at least they’re trying. (So cute! Like they think they’s people.)

    Why has nobody pointed out the missing commas? “Please is an interjection, so it should be:

    “No staples, please.”

    This office clearly does not hire grammar freaks.

    I don’t get any of the references. Is this supposed to be amusing in some way? It just seems juvenile and irrelevant. Or is that the point?

    You know, considering that this is obviously a tv studio with the whole mention of a show and all that, I’m kind of surprised no one went for the theater reference.

    “No sex, please, we’re British.”

    Erin, get on that right now! Along with my “More Rufus Sewell, please. (Cause he’s hot!)” one if I may be so bold. Then send us pictures of the updates.

    • #18.2   Jami

      You can never have too much Rufus!

      I can’t tell you what I like him better in – Dark City where we get to see his naked butt (and I’m not normally into butts), Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter where he has fun chewing the scenery and biting his costars, or The Taming Of The Shrew where we see him in lipstick, miniskirts, fishnet stockings, and kinky boots.

      And then there’s Zen….

      Rufus Sewell needs to be a meme! If only for those sexy eyes of his.

      Back on topic – does anyone think that between the part about this being a show, LA, and the Draper this might be from the writers of Mad Men?

      Check out his credits on IMDB. He’s been in a lot of things but not always as the lead like The Holiday. I believe he was in one of the Zorro movies as well. Probably a few other movies you’ve seen.

      I tell you, it should be illegal for a man to have eyes that beautiful.

      And if you can go see Shakespeare Retold: The Taming Of The Shrew. It also stars Shirley Henderson AKA Moaning Myrtle AKA Ursula Blake (Doctor Who: Love & Monsters).

      It took me about half the episode to figure out that Ursula Blake was Moaning Myrtle, and that’s why she looked/sounded familiar.

    No Solid Gold dancers? People in this office are old enough to remember that show?

    (I work in retail, with people who weren’t even born when I graduated high school. I feel sooooo old sometimes!)

    • #20.1   FeRD bang

      I don’t know if they have to be old enough to remember the show; some of us actually do expose ourselves to the occasional bit of (hilariously-dated) history. Not that I’m all that young, at 38… but even I hardly “remember” Solid Gold. Though I like to think I could still whip out a Solid Gold Dancers reference, if push came to electric slide.

      …However, that doesn’t mean that reference won’t be lost on everyone else. I’m guessing that there was hardly anyone, other than the person who posted that iteration, who had the first clue what it meant.

      Heck, you don’t even have to be young to not get older references. I’ve talked to plenty of people who are old enough to remember when Johnny Carson took over the tonight show and even they couldn’t get the reference to one of Johnny’s repeat guests – The Amazing Kreskin. (And one guy even mixed him up with that idiot Uri Geller!)
