One of our staffers asked an ambitious intern for help setting up a lunch briefing. Setting up the briefing consisted of a buffet table with the works: trays of food, plates, utensils, etc.
Minutes after announcing to the office that he “won’t burn down the building,” and that he “works with buffet spreads the way Picasso worked with oils,” the ever-graceful intern elbowed a buffet tray, knocking the hastily-lit fuel canister across the table, and ignited the very flammable tablecloth. After gasping out: “Ruh-Roh!” the intern doused the flames with bottled water and … paper napkins.
We hope his next internship isn't at a paper mill.
