Things You Think Are Funny When You're Stressed

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2007 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

and about to take a business management final.

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Value what?
Value proposition.

Also, introducing my colleagues to the client: "John, I'm really glad you brought us on board. You already know my colleagues, Killer, Spike, Tug, S***face, and Bill. You've done a great job on operational efficiency...."

Now one of my three classes for the semester is done, as of about 9pm last night. I'll be done with the semester by the 22nd.

I value-propositioned your mom last night!

"Your mom" jokes work great for legal jargon; they are probably very applicable to business jargon as well, as demonstrated above. I find stupid "your mom" jokes help a lot with finals stress. (I'm in the thick of it too, done on the 19th.)

Good luck, Sumana! Let's talk on the phone when we're done and celebrate another semester... of success!

Good luck with the remainder of your semester.
