criticle


This was at Shelly's office in Oregon. She writes, "We’re not quite sure what a Criticle is, but it may be the name of whatever is eating one of my coworker’s plants at night." I actually don't understand anything about this sign. Why shouldn't people fix it?

Why shouldn't people fix it? Job security for Bret, of course. Perhaps "Criticle" is his last name?

Neil said...

it's kind of like a "Cartride"

Morgan said...

Haha, nice one Neil. Didn't see that the first time.

Why shouldn't anyone fix it? Simple: it is Someone Else's Problem.

Clearly, the quotation marks should be around "fix" -- I can comprehend how that could be problematic.

And what's up with the random Capitalization? I hope it's not an editing company!

"Criticle" is what happens when things go dramatically wrong in your cubicle.

What I'd like to know is why do they say not to fix it and then go on to tell you what the problem is, it all seems a bit tempting to me!! I for one would be looking under that cartride...whatever that is.

Criticle clearly means that some kind of nuclear chain reaction is about to occur...

Or criticle could be a horrible mispelling of critical...

it's my experience that when people try to fix things that are criticle, it often ends up making them worse than it was in the first place - catastrofick.
