Office Shenanigans, part II

Tuesday, September 18, 2012 by

We begin this episode of our Office Shenanigans series with the unfortunate circumstance of many of the office chairs apparently having grown sentient and deciding to surround one Gator, in particular.  Many of us watched on, in stunned silence as this took place.  You should know that the Gator in question was eventually able to escape (with much hilarity), and that no chairs were harmed… that day:


Much like the chairs, our elevators seems to sometimes have a mind of their own. Our elevators have been well documented on our blog and I’m beginning to think the level of infamy they have achieved is starting to go to their head, so to speak.  When one of them recently decided to remain open on the 4th floor of the building, refusing to budge at all, a giant stuffed Snappy found it’s way into the the elevator to warn all other Gators from attempting to use the elevator in question:


I’m not sure if these next two pictures qualify as “shenanigans,” moreso than just “delicious.” We have many culinary-minded Gators, and both of these delectable treats were produced by the same individual. The first offering is a likeness of our beloved Snappy, created entirely out of various cheeses.  This Snappy tasted fabulous on crackers!:


The final Gator-themed treat is, well, it’s a gator made out of bacon. Honestly, I’m not sure what else can be said about this, other than anything bacon-related is received rather well at the office, this gator was no exception to that:


That is a bacon “H” there in front of the gator. I couldn’t imagine spelling out an entire bacon HostGator, the logistics alone are daunting. Other than that, I really have no idea how to follow a bacon gator… so until next time!

      Although we’ve got through a few different generations of chairs, the chairs we now use are pretty excellent and they tend to not really break.

      The giant Snappys are for office entertainment only, though we are working towards a solution to provide people with the ability to acquire the smaller plush Snappys. Please stay tuned for that!
