For a fun team building project during lunch today, I’d like each person to contribute some part of their meal to a big slag heap in the center of the table. I’d like the pile to be at least 7 or 8 inches high, so don’t be stingy. Those lunching exclusively on the denser plants, like broccoli or turnip mash, are invited to lay their food down first to form a solid base.

We’ll then take turns pressing our faces into the pile and competing to see who can last the longest before coming up for a breath. I’ll hold the stopwatch and would appreciate it if you didn’t look at me while I’m holding it.

Whoever wins will be in charge of our department for the next 6 years, ruling unopposed and unquestioned absolutely, so really put some effort into it.
