Criminals are running free because of Foo..

I am a police Detective, sitting at my desk reading Foo, instead of doing my job. You people should be ashamed of yourselves!

Don't feel bad. Medical device manufacturing fixtures are not being validated because of Foo. And 3d models of UV reactive gluing fixtures for cell sorting components are not being drawn .

Because of Foo there are TV ads for local businesses are not being written, produced and directed. Companies are losing money on a daily basis and some are going broke because the ad guy is looking at bike forums. Several people have lost their homes, several have suicided, the economy of this state is at its lowest in 20 years, and inflation is at an all time high and going to plunge us into recession...

All because I want to talk bike sh*te in work time.

I decided not to put off work, I just work from my Foo desk now.


It's like a work-from-home maternal leave thing, except I'm not getting any work done and I'm not pregnant.

I have a pond, anyone on the job is welcome to come and fish; the green canoe is better than the red one, btw, and the paddles are underneath them.

Once you slide into the depths of the underworld opportunity for procrastination just multiplies and multiplies...

Well stocked--I knew there was something I was missing. Explains that last speeding ticket.

BTW Dipper, you're not too far away, you're more than welcome to come and drown bait too.

My keyboard is full of food crumbs cause I sit and eat and read Foo, I have constant dribbles down the screen due to coffee spew - because of Foo. And the butt is probably a tad flatter cause I'm sitting here reading Foo.



It's all Foo's fault.

What you got in that pond?
Bream (there in every body of water in GA I think)?
Bass?
Crappie?
Catfish? if so, what kind?
Other?
