  1. I hate when people leave dishes in the sink at the breakroom as work and just leave them there. Makes me want to toss it all in the garbage.

    1. Those cups have been there a couple weeks. The paper cup really cracks me up, though.

  3. Didn't you hear that schools are trying to save them up so the kids can have art class? They make great facial expression art. I realize this is probably too true to be funny.

  4. This is better for the environment than throw-a-way paper cups.

    1. Better you should get a mug than rinse and dry a Dixie cup.

    1. Especially since I may have run my tongue along the inside of it.
      Won't say I have. Won't say I haven't.
      Incidentally, look below. Manzi has given me a devilishly good idea.

  7. I try to encourage my bosses to use mugs instead of wasting paper cups, but they seem to confuse their legal secretary with a scullery maid when it comes to washing said mugs...

    1. Same.
      And I don't look terribly sexy in a scullery maid uniform.

  8. I've never worked in an office but I guess I was under the impression that
    people used their own coffee mugs with the silly sayings and pictures.

    1. That's what I thought. Maybe I should draw some stick figures on it and scrawl, "World's #1 Dad" on it?
      Stay tuned to Penwasser Place...

    1. Hopefully, you mean cups.
      Not toilet paper.

  10. Well, Al, paper doesn't grow on trees. Wait, yes it does. And so does money. Nothing makes sense anymore.

  11. My workplace somehow has more cups than people. On the plus side I never have trouble finding a cup, but on the downside it makes me ponder what happened to these people to force them to abandon their cups.
