We are in a meeting to plan an appreciation day for the front-line staff. Since it is September, the theme is heavily into pumpkins, apples, turning leaves, etc.
Committee Chair: ....and the games will include duck pond bingo and a pumpkin toss.
Me: By "pumpkin toss," do you mean Milt* is going to let us build trebuchets on the roof and fire pumpkins at the courthouse?
Committee Chair: By "pumpkin toss," I mean we will be trying to toss plastic rings over pumpkins.
Me: (wistfully) It might be fun, trying to take out one of the sheriff's deputies while he's outside on a smoke break.
Head of HR: I think we need to send you for evaluation.
