OK, I’m not a big literature or theater geek (but I make up for it in other geek areas) but when this song came over the feed from The FuMP I just about fell out of my chair laughing!

The song is a simply brilliant spoof on Shakespeare to the tune of Don McLean’s masterwork American Pie by the hilarious Robert Lund.

The lyrics are hilarious and wonderfully crafted. Here’s just a taste:

“So to be, or to choose not to be
That’s the question I’m digentin’ in my soliloquy
And when fortune aims it’s slings and arrows at me
Tell me how I’m going to live through act 3
Answer please iambic-ally”

Listen to the whole song, right here, right now, and check out The FuMP for more along these lines!

I do love office pranks, in fact it’s one of the biggest things I miss about working in an office. Earlier today Carla sent me this video:

Now that’s commitment! I’m not sure it’s the ultimate, but it’s easily one of the best I’ve seen yet!

Holiday Decorations SpecI’ve written about it before, but it’s that time of year and I know some of you are wondering exactly how many bails of hay should be placed out for the reindeer (8) or what type of brace to use to secure the angel to the tree (Simpson H7), so here’s the gratuitously detailed PDF for holiday decoration.

All the info is there: tolerances, clearances, capacities, material specifications and more. There are even helpful notes like “Use of alcoholic beverages may increase overall merriment but should not be consumed until tree is installed and electrical items plugged in.”

It’s the holidays and that means two things at Life After Coffee… 1) I have some fun posting gift ideas, and 2) I get a little lazy about blogging and do a lot of sniping from other people’s blogs. Today it’s yet another great product that Dee pointed out:

Call A Meeting T-Shirt


This image is available on a number of shirts at CafePress and would be perfect for the office Yankee Swap, Secret Santa or maybe just to send a message, comical or not.

Condom DressKirsten forwarded me more great dresses and other wearables from a fashion show at the 4th China Reproductive Health New Technologies & Products Expo in Beijing July this past summer.

Condoms of all shapes and sizes were used to make dresses, hats and even lollipops. Models fought through extravagant soap bubble special effects to show off tight-fitting wedding gowns, scaly-looking evening dresses, outrageous bikinis and other garments made entirely of condoms.

I wrote before about a dress made of condoms this new article shows several great examples of condom wearables. AhBoon.net mentions that the show was organized by China’s largest condom manufacturer to promote the use of condoms in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
