Don't worry, I'm keeping up my rep - It seemed like a good idea at the time... [entries|archive|friends|userinfo]

Don't worry, I'm keeping up my rep [Sep. 23rd, 2010|02:05 pm]
I know it's been a while since I've shared any inappropriate work comments -- please let me assure you, it's been lack of time to report, not lack of opportunities. So a quick moment to share yesterday's...waiting for a meeting to begin...and someone had just gotten married in our department and my ex-boss asked me if I thought about getting re-married.

"Why buy the pig, when all you want is a little bit of sausage" I said, before my internal editor could get off of facebook and pay attention.

i have totally used that analogy!

a few year's back at a wedding, the groom's dad was pressuring me why Keith and i don't get married and after all my usual phrases and niceties he started in with the yuk yuk nudge nudge and said "well, why would he want to buy the cow when he can get the milk for free?"

i was so hilarioused that yeah, i said, "why would i want to buy the pig when i get the sausage for free?" his jaw hit the floor which was my exit cue. "ta!!" :D

You put a little extra spice in the meaning of "spit take".

". . . little bit of sausage"? That doesn't sound very flattering. ;)

more complimentary than "why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free" don't you think? And "why buy the pig when all you want is a giant kielbasa" just doesn't have the same ring..
