The Slice Try These Moves At Your Office

By The Spokesman-Review
 

If you suddenly started doing the Freddie, how many of your coworkers would recognize the dance?

So that’s what they’re called: When Cheney’s Elizabeth Olson, 3, initially checked out the frontal view of her first Barbie doll, she exclaimed “Wow, she’s got big elbows.”

A new way to say “men”: “It is time for all of us, women and non-women, to sit at the same table…” - from an editorial in Perspectives, an ABA publication for non-men lawyers

Slice answer: “Seven SFCC staff members walking in a wellness class were surprised on the Centennial Trail recently by an overweight flasher near the T.J. Meenach bridge. Not a pretty sight!” - fax from Institute for Extended Learning

Heard in EWU faculty meetings: “The point in case.” “One swell foop.” “The rile and fank.” - submitted by a Slice spy

Celebrity sighting: “Rode with George Montgomery in an elevator in the Montana Club in Helena,” wrote I. LaVon Montelius.

It’s National Library Week: So we want to put a couple of questions to all those stereotype-lovers who describe anyone who appears to be meek and mousy as “looking like a librarian.” What’s so exciting about YOUR occupation? When was the last time anyone said that those who do your thrilling job reminded them of rock stars or fighter pilots? Librarians connect people with information. Top that.

More latte-sippers with gun racks: Spangle’s Angie Smith wrote in about her husband. And another latte drinker said he ought to get extra credit because his pickup has an NRA sticker, too.

Same goes for bullet-proof vests: “If you think you need a weapon at work, QUIT.” from Knight-Ridder news service

Warm-up question from Jeff Knight: How many people have washed their pagers with a load of laundry?

Today’s Slice question: Who around here has the job you want?
