I think that there should be an international ban on the deployment of microwave popcorn in the working environment. It has got to be one of the most distracting things I can think of. Torture, really. Perhaps the UN will get involved, or somebody will come forward and let me know that it is against the Geneva Convention. Microwave popcorn either:
- smells *GREAT* and you MUST have some (although there isn't any for sale in the vending machine)
- smells AWFUL because somebody didn't stand near the machine to see when it stopped popping and it is now a carbonized lump in the cafeteria threatening anyone in the vicinity with carbon monoxide poisoning.
- is endangering the safety of all employees due to the fact that it has burst into flames in the microwave (see above).
Gawd, I want a bowl of popcorn right now.
