    Agreed It would probably make this a lot easier to understand and possibly funnier.

    Number 16 is just odd, even by skippy standards. I can’t think of ANYTHING quinoa does that would piss anyone off…

    I have no good idea what a purchasing department really is, and some of these need a creativity boost, especially 6, 11, 12, 21, 49 and 50.
