Skellies working hard discussing what to eat for lunch !

Setting: (On the cup/poster/mousepad)

Head skeleton: Douglas, where are we with that report?

Douglas [flustered]: We're just compiling the survey responses now, Sir. Data acquisition is complete on my end. Bradley is processing the data and sending it on to Debra who will complete the analysis and present best practices.

Debra [mockingly]: Meh, meh. "Durtah Arquirdition...I'm Dougie. Besth Pwacticies.

Douglas: Excuse me, Debra? Did you have something to add?

[Debra shuffles papers on the desk and flicks off Douglas secretively.]

Douglas: Very mature. You know, I'm tired of the irresponsibility of some people here.

Bradley [mockingly]: I'm Dougie,I'm tired of blah blah, waah, wah! All I do is collect surveys but then I act like I actually do something. [Straightening up and raising an eyebrow] If you're tired of us, just imagine how tired we are of you, Mr. Best Practices. What does that even mean? We sell cupcakes. CUPCAKES. I mean, why are we having board meetings? We have one store, and it's run by Uncle Phil here. [Gestures to the head of the table.]

Uncle Phil: You do kind of have your drawers in a bunch, Doug. How much data do we need on icing preference?

Doug [obviously flustered]: This is a business, we need to run it like a business.

Debra: Shove a cupcake in your hole, Dougie. You don't do anything but write up reports. I mean what the eff is Data Acquisition. You asked 20 people about German Chocolate cupcakes and they all said the same thing: German Chocolate cupcakes have coconut icing on them. I mean give it a rest. Bake a cupcake once in a while, you weirdo.

Doug [to Uncle Phil]: Sir, are you going to let her talk to me like that? That should be grounds for dismissal. I demand that you ask for her resignation.

Phil [shaking his head]: Doug, I'm not firing your sister.

Doug [standing up quickly]: I'm reporting this to HR.

Brad: Aunt Mary is at yoga, you'll have to wait until she gets back. [under his breath] Weirdo.

(And scene!)

This is a meeting of upper management types - notice the one skelly at the end of the table. The head skelly has gathered his group to inform them of the spectacular salary increase they will give themselves this year. Notice the gestures from head skelly (why it's a great idea) and the other skellys clapping their hands (we agree)

They're trying to figure out why their insurance company is losing money.

Maybe it's the skull and crossbones logo. Maybe it's the company name, "Best Death Insurance".

They're discussing ways to boost staff morale, including upping calcium intake, installing skeleton-friendly gravestones in all the restrooms, and whether 13 or 666 ravns would be a better number for the office Halloween party.
