Days are getting tough in the office at the moment as we all work towards to culmination of a rather sizeable project. This stress, combined with a carb deplete for me, I felt had made me a little short, though it turned out the team hadn’t noticed.
Anyway, to say sorry and to buoy up the team, I bought them some biscuits and sent out the following email.
We all have so much to do,
But don’t get angry and don’t be blue.
With the new website there is so much to fix,
So cheer yourself up with some merry biscuits.
Can you see why I work in content? I think I should be writing greetings cards.
My carb deplete has left me more than a little frustrated this week. So, I bring gifts of biscuits. Enjoy!
I could never have anticipated the response I would receive; email after email of biscuit puns. So here they all are, for your enjoyment.
*Please note, I have changed the names so we don’t get in to trouble for wasting company time*
1. Roll with it
You’re on a fig roll Jo.
2. We all have our favourites
You are now my favourite member of the team!
Anna, you should have said favourite member of the Club. Opportunity missed
3. Almost makes sense
Treacle chips in
Or you should have said you were going to p-p-p-pick up a biscuit.
4. Sick days suck!
I’m afraid I’ll have to pass after I was off sick Tuesday with some “digestive” problems
5. Thanks for playing
Steve gets involved
Sorry, but I can’t think of any biscuit puns; I’m as thick as custard cream.
Ah Steve… That’s just the way the cookie crumbles
Bob fires back
That’s rich tea coming from you, Nica
8. Right back at ya!
Nica’s not done
Bob you’re such a hobnob!
9. Now the intern’s getting involved
Oreo no! She went there! Are you going to take that Bob?!
10. Back again
Back to Bob
You can always ‘viscount’ on Nica not to be very ‘nice’
11. A pun?
We are all “jammy dodgers” aren’t we!
12. Some confusion
There was then some confusion over what was a waffle and what was a wafer and whether or not a waffle counted.
We should stop ‘’waffle’’ing and actually do some work now!
But these are most definitely pink WAFERS!
I personally thought that was a ‘’cracker’’
14. & 15. Dubious
At this point the less creative members of the team just started Googling any old biscuit.
Come on now; we’ve had our Jolly – we don’t want this to end in a Barny!
16. Which they couldn’t get away with
God, were really picking at the crumbs now!
17. Some felt it was wearing a little thin
We’re getting stuck between a Rocky and a hard place.
18. & 19 Should we keep going?
Are we done yet? Amaretti for more biscuit puns if you guys have um?
Or have you had bourbon you can handle?
20. Should we?
Has the wagon wheels fallen off of this thread now?
21. -24. Multi-packed
This is getting a bit Thins; but if anyone can do any Butter, then Go ahead – but Bisquick! Tru.
Got any more biscuit puns that we may have missed? I’d love to hear them.
