Office conversations

A colleague stopped at my desk the other day. While waiting for the printer to spew out a stream of exciting positioning statements, he looked at me and asked:

"Do you think squirrels are merely foxes that have gone through a hot wash?"

It was a good question and I couldn't answer it. Well, not straight away. How do you deal with someone who has that worldview? By asking another question back. So I did:

"I'm not sure. But do you ever wonder if magpies are just small badgers with hang-gliders?"

I work with some very odd people.

Are elephants pathological liars?

Do you think he thinks you are odd, too, answering his question with a question like that?
