Default Let's trade some lunches.

Reading this little article, where a man decides he doesn't want his pudding cup and so attempts to trade it, grade school style, to other patrons at a cafe, gave me an idea.

I'm sitting here staring at these two "fun size" packets of peanut M&M's that I could be persuaded to part ways with. What'll you give me for them?

First person who give me an acceptable trade gets to broker the next one, and so on. Could be amusing...

Diet products taste nasty. No sale.

I've got an open pack of gum I've been carryin' in my back pocket for a week or so. While the 5 pieces have fused into one, I'm sure your lunch hour would be long enough to get them apart...

It would sort of depend on the flavor, Tarkus. The fact that they are all fused together doesn't faze me. The fact that they have been in your back pocket for a week does faze me.

(stands on cafeteria chair): C'mon people! Peanut M&M's! Whaddya got! Somebody will give me something good....

Hmmm...a SMALL watermelon. I'm not much for watermelon, but I'm intrigued by the idea of a small one. Shawndo, you have a trade! Enjoy these M&M's with my compliments and proffer what it is you would like to deal out of your lunch.

Hmmm, Shawn. I'll give you one of those little boxes of Sun Maid raisins for it.

Too late, Gconn, I already accepted Shawn's offer.

You may be stuck with that for lunch, Shawn...

Parents teach their kids when they're young "Don't talk to strangers" with "Don't accept bananas from strange men" a close second.
