Anything Goes

Our creepy manager dragged us all into the conference room. The walls were lined with sheets of butcher paper and the table littered with markers. He announced with his usual smarmy arrogance that we were there to brainstorm ways to improve morale. He gestured to the wall, said, “Anything goes,” and stared at us. We stared back, dead silent.

  1. Troy produced a camcorder from his pocket. “Anything goes, uh? I propose a snuff movie with our department leader in the starring role. Wouldn’t THAT improve morale?”
    Some colleagues laughed nervously. Clearing his throat, our manager stood his ground: “Management would never pay for production and distribution costs, you know.”

  2. I saw the topic for today and I started singing. Good thing no one else was here because I can’t carry a tune in a bucket!!! Why was I singing? Because today’s phrase is the title dong of one of Cole Porter’ greatest Broadway musicals and it’s one of my favorites.

  3. One just has to pick up the newspaper these days to be able to exclaim to oneself “anything goes”.All those reports of corruption scandals, wanton crime, mindless chaos, yes, indeed! Anything goes.In traditional Indian philosophy, this state of affairs is attributed to’ Kaliyuga’ ,where invariably ‘the adharma” or the unethical.immoral” events happen”,or deeds are done……

  4. “Let’s go to the Chinese buffet for lunch, Cal!”
    “Rick, that’s a great idea!”
    “Yeah, it’s anything goes, buddy!”
    “Anything goes?”
    “Yeah, there’s an eclectic choice of foods, from pizza and macaroni and cheese to sushi.”
    Sushi! Now we’re talking,” Rick said as he opened the car door and sat on the passenger side. “There’s definitely going to be a pile of that on my plate, Cal”
