Business Meeting Beverages…and Eucalyptus?

I don’t know why, but for a good 3 weeks I was on a koala kick. It seemed like every time I sat down to write, I’d come up with koala jokes.

There was one where the koala was eating a ukelele instead of eucalyptus. One where a giant monster koala was threatening a city and someone was yelling, “Get some eucalyptus!” And another where the superhero, Koala-Man, just sat quietly munching some leaves as his teammates fight evil and one of them comments, “How is it he always manages to find a eucalyptus tree nearby?”

You can’t do them all. And this one, although quieter, seemed funniest and the likeliest to sell. So the others found their way into the recycling bin.

I wonder what’s next. . .pandas?

  1. Hehe! I like the one you have up there, but I also like the other ones you mentioned, especially the giant koala bear! I wish you hadn’t dumped them, but hey, your creative decision.

    Yeah, do pandas next (maybe a panda dancing to Micheal Jackson’s ‘It Don’t Matter If You’re Black or White’! Or giraffes! Or tortoises! Yeah, tortoises! Thor the Tortoise. 🙂

  2. This is cute. It would make a great beginning for the right PowerPoint presentation. 🙂
