I once rewrote in my head the first verse and chorus of Abba's "Dancing Queen" into "Faxing Queen."

I still remember a good chunk of it.  It's terrible.   ;D

I don't remember what happened to it now but, we had a list in the office.  You could gain points by:

Paging yourself on the PA system or sending an email to your boss in a foreign language or replacing someone's pens with a different color.  Most of it was pretty juvenile.  I never played it but, a couple of my co-workers used to track their points.  I don't remember if there was a prize or not.  But, I think the boss caught on and told everybody to stop.

*sigh*  I suppose since I brought it up, I must bring out the entire shame....

Monday morning, the lights are bright
Soon the boss comes into sight
A stack of papers in hand, onto your desk they land
"These all need to be faxed.
So when you get a chaaaaance."

You are the Faxing Queen, the newest one on the office team
Faxing Queen, hear the beep on the fax machine, ooh yeah
You can fax, you can type, having the time of your life
Ooo, see that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the Faxing Queen.



Utterly terrible.  And yet it pops into my head now every time I must fax.  Everything is ruined forever!   ;)

Along those lines
At my previous job the conference room chairs were all adjustable height.  The running joke was to arrive early, adjust one chair as low as it would go, and put that chair at the head of the table.  A few minutes later the VIP running the meeting would arrive, sit in that chair, and end up with the table top half way up his chest.  Everybody got a quick giggle while the VIP switched chairs. 

It got so pervasive that by the time I left every conference room had one chair already set low and pushed in a corner.

     Not terrible... rather genius I think :-)  I kinda wish I came up with it...
Once in a while you get your delight, in the strangest of faces if you look at it right...

Hee, thanks.  But if you'd come up with it, then you'd have to live in a brain like mine that spontaneously comes up with nonsense like this on a regular basis.  Mine is the subconscious that gave me the dream of Attack of the Zombie Kittens, after all. ;)

Also, on rereading, I realized that I'd mucked up a word, so I've now edited the song-post.  Because 'beat' was in the original song, and in my version it's 'beep'.  Fax machines beep!
