The I.T. department that I’m seconded to had a dress-down day for Comic Relief – you know, you pay a quid not to wear a coloured rope around your neck. The ladies wore pigtails.
One of the non-English programmers (sorry, but it’s germane to the tale) entered the open plan office wearing a sweatshirt which, it later transpired, had been given to him as a present. The shirt bore a logo with a two-word legend beneath it.
After hours of innuendo and oblique remarks, he was eventually spooked into realising that all was not well (no-one tells you directly that your flies are undone, do they?).
From 3 feet away, he e-mailed me to say he’d run it through all of the Search Engines and only got “toy helicopters” and “warriors’ swords”.
I confess I laughed ‘til I cried.
Oh sorry – the logo? A large axe.
And the legend? BIG CHOPPER.
I believe it was delivered to the charity shop on his way home …
