Weirdness



Friends and Kitties!

Sheebie here.

I have some disturbing humorous interesting weird news to report.  
There's a Rhinoceros at work.

No, not a working rhino, rather, an actual physical animal where *I* am employed...and I have photographic evidence:

Hello there!

Here's the story--I'm at work, pumping sludge into the drying beds (because no matter what I do, it's always all about "the poop"--not really actual poop in this situation but that's my brain at it's finest) and I notice an animal-like silhouette out of the corner of my eye.  My first thought was "man, that's a big f---ing lizard" (without the "---") and my second thought was "and it's not moving, either--what the hell is that?"  So I walked over to check it out...and people, it was a plastic rhino, nearly a foot long, and it had been placed on this rock, deliberately--there's no other explanation!

I almost wet my pants laughing.

Consider this:  Where I work is completely fenced and gated, so Sir Rhino was brought to work by Employee X and placed there, deliberately.  Who does this?  What kind of statement does this make?  What purpose does a plastic toy rhinoceros serve at work?  Moreover, who the heck manufactures miniature rhinoceri?  It's not like they're attractive as a centerpiece...

In any case, I've had elebenty kinds of fun this week, telling people that there's a rhinoceros at work, then showing the photo and telling the story.  Everybody seems just as enchanted as I by the whole thing--but nobody's 'fessd up to it--maybe that's even better.

Have I mentioned that I just love where I work?



Happy Sunday, and have a Great Week!

  2. Our (sicko) Mommy sees lots of potential with this. Bwahahaha!

    Maybe he could make a little trip to see the Lounge kittehz????
    (while there, you could do lewd and lascivious things to it)
    Here's just a few off the top of our heads: rhino cleans the litterbox, rhino in tie-dye, The Johnson has his way with the rhino...you get the idea.

    Have a great Sunday!

  7. All Hail, Rhino-Bringer!

    That said, I really love Angel Prancer's idea. . .Just think: The Baby and the Rhino.

  8. You have to wonder if he's already on a trip like Angel Prancer suggested.. perhaps someone who works there placed him where he'd be seen so he can take pictures of people freaking out seeing him? Hmmm the possibilities are endless!

  12. Well, that's waaaay better than a Flat Stanley!! I'd pick him up and start doing photo-ops with him. Or her.

  13. At least one of your co-workers is FAR more interesting and fun than all of mine (me included) put together! :-P

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sheesh! I can't even imagine loving where I work...

    ReplyDelete
  15. We hope this remains a mystery forever!

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is so hysterical. We can't believe that you didn't think of hijacking that Rhino to take home to all the kitties, Can you just see what they would do?? Have a great day.

  17. That Rhino dude looks a bit stoned to me!

  18. That's pawesome! The head peep once went to a job interview where the HR person called down the elevator and it opened to reveal an enormous stuffed (plush, not taxidermy) horse with a real football helmet on its head, inside the elevator car. Workplaces with creative people are the best!

  19. I am glad you got the photographic evidence or I would be wondering how many happy pills you had taken.

    ReplyDelete
  20. MOL! Wonder if any of Mr. Rhino's friends will start popping up to join him.

  25. Awesome. Everybody needs a surprise rhino in their lives now and again!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's very funny. But where is the pink plastic flamingo?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Is it lifesize? It’s hard to tell whether the rock is small or the rhino is big. MOL!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hehe, the rino could be the start of something big!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Perhaps a political statement? :)
    What a fun place you work in...with all that poop and stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  30. MOL!!! Oddly, we just finished writing Tuesday's post. Betcha can't guess what it's about.

  32. I need to work there. See...I would LOVE that rhino and the fact that somebody else thought it would be hilarious to put there. And that it makes everyone else nutty wondering who? why? where'd they get it? etc. That is what makes work fun.

    Me...I've got little "bubble" people made out of the bubble packaging that covered the toner for the copier. Everyone asks about them...I just shrug my shoulders.

    Then there is the label-maker song...

  33. We don't blame you for loving your workplace! It sounds like so much fun. A rhino ... imagine that! MOL!

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's funny. Why do I suspect one of the kitties was involved somehow?

    ReplyDelete
  35. MOL! You sure work in a fun place.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Quik!! Call the CSI people to investigate...why should this Rhino situation be kept to Vegas alone? Go NATIONAL! Get it on the show!

    ReplyDelete
  37. That sounds like my kind of purrson!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You like cats, that person likes rhinos.. nothing wrong with that..
