Two funny things

At work, Bill had a meeting with the HR department to discuss a new "non-compete" type clause that they now had to sign. Anyway, in the middle of it Bill raised his hand and (not skipping a beat, as usual) said, "Where it says 'one human soul' here, does it have to be our own?" :o) Unfortunately, according to the HR manager, it does have to be your own, which totally stinks...

(just kidding, I think!)

I think Dave Barry is taking a year off. Maybe Bill should be his temporary replacement!

The second thing is a list that Bill and I made up of new Harry Potter titles (in case J.K. Rowling runs out or something). I'll share some of the funnier ones (at least the ones I thought were funny)

Harry Potter: The Urban Legend of Poprocsoda
Harry Potter: Escape from a Fundamentalist
Harry Potter: Minors in VCR repair
"Harry Potter realizes that all this witchcraft and wizardry is hardly going to get him much of a job when he graduates from Hogwarts. Enjoy this wild ride as Harry confronts one of the greatest challenges yet: a Muggle VCR instruction manual..."

Harry Potter: Hermione starts losing her powers once a month
Harry Potter: The Tax Form Labyrinth
Harry Potter: Dispute of the cable bill
Harry Potter: Hogwarts moves to L.A.
Harry Potter: Psycotherapy for the Dursleys
Petunia Dursley finally confronts the issues she has with her sister and why she feels the need to reenact the painful scenario onto Harry and Dudley. Dudley realizes that he eats too much to overcome a deep sense on inadequacy. Peace and tranquility finally find a place in the Dursley household.
Harry Potter: Dumbledore gets a hip replacement
Harry Potter: The Rogaine Nightmare
"If you thought Harry Potter's bad hair problems were terrible before, just wait to see what happens when someone accidentally spills a "hair growth formula" on him in Potions class. Snape is NOT happy..."

Harry Potter: The Tree-Huggers
Harry Potter: Hogwarts library defies the Patriot Act
"Federal agents are trying to determine whether the forbidden section of Hogwarts library has any materials that terrorists might peruse. But Madam Pince won't be having any of it, and the agents are having quite a time getting around some of the spells cast on the books! Real trouble comes when Hogwarts is put on a list of organizations harboring terrorists..."

Harry Potter: The Gryffindor keg party
Harry Potter: The horrible, terrible, no good very bad day
Harry Potter: Clash of the Plaids and Stripes
Harry Potter: The Magic Mushroom Addiction

And someone at work came up with "Harry Potter: Loses his Virginity", which I thought was funny, but I think I've heard it before.
