Overheard in the Office

Coworker, who has been working for several hours on a small problem:  "DB, I need a clue.  Can you help?"

DaddyBear:  "Certainly.  You see a line of bloody footprints leading away from the body.  They were made by a pair of size 9 Italian calf-skin loafers, made by a blind Turkish man in Naples 4 years ago.  Does that help?"

Coworker:  "That's got it, thanks!"

One of the reasons I have stayed at my job so long is that I work with some of the best people I've ever met.

Sounds like a good place to work!

And a better comeback than "Sure, hold on, I'll do a couple practice swings on the clue by four so you get a good solid one."
