Mim: I really like how ABJ has opened up this space.
T: Ja, me too.
Mim: We’re going to put an occasional table over there.
T:  Is the table going to be there all the time?
Mim: What do you mean?
Pim: Will it be there only on occasion?
Mim: You two have been spending far too much time together!

Pim: You’d better be careful saying you’re happy to travel in Africa. Next thing they’ll send you to Macquarie University in Rwanda.
Mim: I think you mean Makerere University…
T: …in Uganda.

Two bored subs in an email conversation… It’s funnier if you know what copy we were working on at the time. Or, perhaps, not funnier, just (even) sillier.

T: Cool beans… and good karma.
Ralph: Coffee beans… and good java 😉
T: Jumping beans… and a shot of tequila :p
Ralph: Has beens… and a shot to the head 🙂
T: Magic beans… and sacred cows.
Ralph: Fee fi fo fum, I smell… holy bull crap!

T: I don’t understand why the government is getting so excited about Cofit, when it hasn’t sorted out Refit properly yet.
Mim: What’s Cofit?
T: The cogeneration feed-in tariff.
Mim: Oh.
T: Also, why do they have to have all these silly acronyms? Like, why can’t all the tariffs just be called one thing?
Mim: They just want to make people feel excluded.
T: Ja, like the poor solar power people. They need get their own tariff; it could be called Sofit.
Mim: What they really need is a Sowhat tariff!

T: I  got home from work really late last night, because all these bloody interns were also in the queue for transport. They even jumped ahead of me, sies!
LB:  Fucking interns. If they’re not sucking off the president, they’re stealing your transport!
