Just went to a weekly meeting and a one of the attendees turned up and put a bottle of Fairy Liquid on the tabel in front of him, along with the usual pad, pen etc.

Wierd !

Perhaps he wanted to clean up any misunderstandings ?

In actual fact when questioned he said it was "In case things got dirty"

...dead monkey called Roger dressed as a clown. I suggested he take the minutes before asking everyone to stand for the national anthem.

Slightly off-topic but I was once in a Videoconference call when one of the people at the other site obvously forgot he was in a VC rather than a telephone conference and starting making "******" signs when the house dweeb was droning on and on.

I remember when we first used a videoconference device to talk to the USA - bit of a novelty back in '99. Everything was in mid flow and soon we started to get bored. We had already briefed one guy to walk across the background several times pretending to go down a set of invisible stairs.

Then one of the guys starts moving the remote camera around and zooms straight into one of the pretty staff members heaving chest. All of a sudden there was a silence, a cough and then a southern drawl announces that "...er, we can actually see what you are seeing..."

Red faces all round.

A colleague of mine took an egg timer into a management meeting with a particulary waffling ex-services sort.

He produced the egg timer as the waffler lumbered to his feet for the start of 40 minutes of unproductive buzzword infested waffle and paper shuffling.

Everyone else thought it was funny, except the waffler who promptly told him to "put that bloody thing away"!
