Is it passive-aggressive to leave a note saying that you are not passive-aggressive?
Incidently, it isn’t a very blessed day for the tuna.

Is it passive-aggressive? IS IT???
…Oh, sorry, the answer to your question is: Yes. Yes, it is.
(In fact, I suspect Mary probably meant her note as a joke, for exactly that reason. Well done, Mary. We Are Mildly Amused.)

Oh, Mary. If you didn’t want people to think the original note was yours you should probably stop distributing chick tracts to your coworkers who don’t attend your weekly Bible study in the break room.

Tuna Offender’s what?
May 13, 2014 at 4:04 pm rating: 12
…mugshots? Wait, no, that would be “offenders’.”
I got nothin’.

The tuna offender’s picture(s). That tuna fish is wearing a hat and glasses, so he can’t see too well and is therefore easily offended by one of those suspects.

Who left the tuna in the sink? Ask the next Mermaid you happen to see…

Wait- is it chicken or fish???

Oh for cod’s sake. I don’t have time to deal with this carp. I’m fin-ished, and you’re all a bunch of bass-tards.
Sorry. I guess I really can’t resist a good line.

Your shrimpy little jokes make me crabby.

I’m sure that was unintentional, Geek Goddess. Lita throws out puns for the halibut.

I guess she’s flounder calling.

I just can’t resist them! I guess I’m hooked…I’m really sunk.

Those puns were terrible – you clearly have no sole.

Whale then, we should just eeliminate this whole thread.

Something fishy is going on here. It’s a good thing I’m not shelling out a lot of clams to perch on this page. I don’t want to go overboard by casting a wide net, so I’ll shut my lobster trap now.

Charlie Tuna is such a hipster.

Sole music for tuna hipsters…just for da halibut…
You thought it would be something about crustaceans by the B-52′s ?

Now the kitchenette tyrants want people to ”wash” the sink? Somebody has a tin of Bumblebee in their bonnet

My tuna fish brings all the notes to the yahd.

You have to wonder how bad the reek possibly could be in the post-lunch hour. Was it attracting stray cats?
May 14, 2014 at 7:22 am rating: 4
Indoor or outdoor cats?
May 14, 2014 at 9:01 am rating: 12
These stray cats? They were cool at one time….

Better the sink smell like tuna, than the person eating tuna at the desk next to you.

I would buy dolphin friendly tuna, but fair’s fair… I’ve never heard of a tuna friendly dolphin.
May 14, 2014 at 7:46 am rating: 3
Dolphin are friendly to tuna the same way that lions are friendly to gazelle.

Don’t eat gross smelling things in common areas, people. Don’t dump tuna in the sink, don’t microwave straight cauliflower or fish sticks (all things that have smelled up entire office floors in my history.)
If you MUST eat these things, and you don’t live in antarctica, you can probably eat/dispose of that where the rest of the building doesn’t have to smell about it.

I didn’t get the cauliflower memo. Guess I’ll have to start eating human brains instead
May 15, 2014 at 12:11 am rating: 6
I didn’t realise cauliflower smells either, I’ve always thought it was one of the least smelly (or flavoured) vegeables.
May 15, 2014 at 9:44 am rating: 3
Uh, cauliflower is known for being stinky. Just Google “cauliflower smell” if you don’t believe me.
I love the stuff, but it does stink when you cook it.

Truth be told, I didn’t dump any tuna in the sink. I was rinsing out my panties.

Since The Tuna Offenders’ are in Boston (right across the river from Cambridge (our fair city) ) they could very well be related to the trash offender who has been haunting my hallways.
I place my trash pails out in the hall nightly for emptying. Most days I arrive the next day to find my trash pails clean and empty – except for those odd days when persons unknown have dropped random pieces of potentially stinky food & food waste: empty yogurt containers, banana peels, apple cores, etc.
