1. One academic department I worked in had a sign in the lounge kitchen about cleaning up after yourself because “Your mother doesn’t work here”. Everyone delighted in recognizing that the statement was in one case false, as a mother and daughter were both on staff.

  2. ” that must have been one terrible pizza that everything aside from one slice is considered “leftovers.””

    I used to volunteer with an organization that paid its volunteers with pizza. They’d always get at least one “vegetarian” pizza, and that one would always be the last one touched, and the only one still (partly) present at the end of the night.

  3. It’s one of those ‘futuristic’ refrigerators that tells you when you’re running low on milk, when some food is about to expire (date-wise), etc. Then it connects to the internet and places an order. It also ‘talks’ to her.

  4. There is a picture on the WWW of a possibly-apocryphal text message. It’s from a woman asking for help after her dog accidentally locked her in the kitchen. It’s sent from her refrigerator. A comment says that it’s the only good use of an Internet connection from a refrigerator.

  5. I’ve heard stories of dogs locking someone OUT of a car, but IN a kitchen? Who has locks on a kitchen door? Who even has doors on kitchens anymore??

  6. My friend and I threw a party. About half of the people we invited told us they were vegetarians.

    So in addition to the cheeseburgers and hot dogs we got some vegetarian food.

    All the vegetarians ate cheeseburgers and hot dogs. Nobody ate the vegetarian food.
