Website Of The Day: Overheard In The Office


I've been in a funk lately because NBC has been airing reruns of The Office and I haven't been able to get my geeky, office fix. In the mean time I'm getting my fix from Overheard in the Office: The Voice of the Cubicle, a sister site to ever popular Overhead in New York. Whether you work in a real cubicle, classroom, lab, or even a spacious office with a view co-workers are always blabbing about something off the wall and then trailing off without finishing their stories. Being the sap I am, my favorite moments, like this one always seem to center around something funny a kid said:

Five-year-old boy: I have a tooth that's loose! It's gonna come out, and then I'm gonna put it under a pillow, and then I'm gonna get money and buy a tooth, and then I'm gonna put it under my pillow and get money and buy a toy, and then an adult tooth will grow in.
Librarian: Wow! You learn something new every day!
Five-year-old boy: It's the basic law of science.

He sounds like a regular Napoleon Dynamite, doesn't he? To learn how to post your favorite sites to the Website of the Day group, read more
