So at work there’s this email listserv that occasionally (ok, frequently) gets a little out of control re: content. As we just acquired 2 new clerks in the last week, they are getting quite the initiation into how our world works via the listserv. Take, for instance, this email sent out randomly around noon today:

Subject: open letter

Dear everyone,

I accidentally pooped my pants this morning. Please steer clear of [our] chambers.

Some Unnamed Clerk

It subsequently came to light that the email was sent as a prank when Some Unnamed Clerk left his PC unattended when he went to lunch. Nonetheless, I think there’s a whole new academic field of poop jokes jurisprudence to be explored.
