Funky Friday Feedback: Explain yourselves!



Dear employees and blog enthusiasts,

As you may well know, today is Funky Friday, a day on which casual attire is permitted in the offices, and casual swearing is also tolerated within reason. I write to you because today's funky friday involves voting on the funeral for one of our dear staff members.

Here is a reminder of the question posed to our readers:

Sadly, a member of the Delavigne staff has been eaten by a bear! Let's look back at their life and give them the funeral of their dreams! Whose funeral will be taking place in next month's Funky Friday?
Edward Moon, Delavigne's intern and fan of classic British rock and adventure movies, for a budget funeral full of spotty teenagers.
Philip Cheeter, Sales Director and fan of power ballads and fast cars, for a funeral full of weeping blondes.
Brian Jones, Personal Assistant extraordinaire and fan of Elkie Johns and musicals, for a funeral full of red ribbons, white doves, and tears.
Hannah Benedict, Head of Retail and fan of fair trade and folk music, for an environmentally-friendly funeral.

Normally this would be a devastating event, but, as it is funky friday, I'm willing to overlook the tragic nature of this development as well as the wrongful death lawsuit which will likely be filed against me. I do however have a 2-part question for you: Who did you vote for and why?

For example: I voted for Edward because sometimes he mumbles, and I'm not sure he washes his hands after using the toilet.

Please let me know by commenting on this post. Thank you.

Delavigne out.

I voted for Brian because he is one of the main characters in Delavigne Corp and I d'like to see some new faces across my lessons. Moreover, I don't like his haircut. I'm sure he hides some stuff, it's maybe a spy selling secret information to a British competitor...

I voted for Moon. I don't like classic British rock neither adventure moovies. I won't be at his funeral. I will be sick, at home. Too much lay offs all over the world these days, this will create a new opportunity for a rookie. Delavigne will hire and thus contribute to getting the country back on track. O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA! said the Bear!

I voted for Philip Cheeter because he prefers seeing women only at one single kind, that is to say as an easy prey. Otherwise I hope to experience a very funny funeral with all the weeping blondes.

Answer to the first question: I voted for the four of them.
Double answer to the second question: Because I didn't want to make any jealous. Moreover, the more, the merrier.

Despair settled on top of despair!
I had always hoped in the bottom of my heart that Philip could once upon a night make love with me. Just for once as a try. I had been dreaming of it for months, in fact since I saw him for the first time in a story. I had fallen in love on the spot. But as he is a well-kown womanizer I wanted to have a try before futher enggement.
I made all I could as to see Hannah swallowed, she was a dangerous rival. I voted for her. But no use! The die is cast!
My despair is a despair settled on top of despair!
The best I still can do is putting an end to my life.

Obituary
I overheard that Sandy put an end to her life, as she had decided to do 2 days ago. It would seem that she jumped out of a sunny window from the sixth storey of a concrete building. She was seen flying down as a blue bird singing Philip's praises.
Her funerals will take place within the next 5 days for she can't enjoy a warm nest Philip has been provided with. If the burying was delayed more than 5 days, her body could make a feast for rats.
I'll keep you posted of details about where and when.

Best AhQ,
Don't fail to specify:
about the where: on which planet.
about the when: on which Local Time the funerals are scheduled.

This blog seems to be computed with an offset of minus 8 hours from UTC. That's LT of SF.

I was standing on the sill. There was like a huge black crag below. I thought: DO IT. On the count of 3, I jumped. Witnesses will tell you that AhQ gave me a prod. His testimony here above on this thread is likely to work against him before the courts. Poor AhQ! That's unfair. He did it for nothing but my good.
I fell arms and legs outspread as I was used to do in sky-diving. But this time it wasn't the air but Philip who was stroking my body all over. That was exhilarating! More and more exciting up to the striking orgasmic crash peak. Yes, my Philip. Eventually you had me!

It wasn't a script for a movie, Hortence. It was so much awful that nobody would like to live it, be it on a screen, be it with a grin friendly worn under an umbrella. (I love your cheerful picture. You look like being so understanding!)

Any reader more or less demanding for a rigourous language will have noticed that, halfway through my fall, at the moment I remembered my past sky-dives, I dropped 3 letters making up a gerund. I was indeed remembering that I was used to doING sport. That drop of 3 letters must have been the side-effect of the upcoming climax.

What I am the most concerned with at the moment, it's that the figures Icarus drew up in percentages and percentiles could be never getting an interpretation. That interpretation should have been based on statistics showing why my co-learners who took part in the choice, pointed out Philip as the victim to make the meal of bear. Unless a lot of co-learners of good will post posthaste the reason that backed their choice, I'll be doomed to never get to know why I left my beloved.

Why grumbling tl;dr , Hannah? The fact that every female GG-user voted for you to turn into bear's food, that's a feat you should proud of. There are so many jealous girls around here.

Apart from me who voted for the four, not a single man voted for your ingestion.

Before getting started I insist that Gee correct his wrong statement about every woman supposed to have voted for our dear Hannah. Hortence told us from the day after the tragedy yet, that she had voted for Moon.

I want to show my good will and help Sandy Ayeomen to rest in peace forever.
Now given that it was urgent for Sandy to come to some explanation of the tasting of Philip's flesh by a grizzly bear, I took it upon myself to make a so-called small survey of our GGmates motives in voting.
Here are the results of my inquiry.

Abdul Baba - voted for Philip - Cheeter has an immoral behavior
Balaen (couldn't be reached)
Clarissa75 (couldn't be reached, probably stuck in a Parisian traffic jam)
Cordelia (couldn't be reached, should though have voted as being concerned for the staffs)
Dicky - swore he voted for Philip - Philip is driving all girls up the wall.
Elizabeth - voted for Hannah - Hannah's strand of hair in her right eye makes her too seductive.
Gwendo (couldn't be reached, as likely as she was busy with an idiom.)
Ignatius - voted for Philip - Philip was a cheater.
Joe Six-Pack - voted for Philip - He couldn't put up Philip's easy flirts.
Joe the farmer - voted for Philip - Who would go harvesting if anyone wasted their time wooing girls?
Joe the plumber - voted for Philip - Philip's peter-tap could never be fixed.
Judaeus - voted for Philip - By making any kiss coarse Cheeter made Judaeus' famous kiss to lose credibility.
Karla - voted for Hannah - Hannah's blond hair is a dread thread for Karla's husband.
Lucky bastard - voted for Brian - Brian uses a too refined British English.
Mamadou - voted for Philip - Cheeter's way of handling women does not fit my religion.
Nast - voted for Philip - as a cartoonist Nast considered Cheeter challenged his cartoons.
Oscar - voted for Philip - Oscar's wife was doting Philip.
Philip the Great - voted for Philip - Philip the great couldn't stand sharing his first name with a perverted person.
Salvatore - voted for Philip - insisting that Cheeter be forgiven for his sins.
Stephan G (couldn't be reached)
Woo-Woo - voted for the four but Cheeter - Philip was the only one worth loving.

It's up to you to judge whether it is a representative sample of the GG-community.
See you at Philip's funerals.
