The Sheer Brilliance of Our Summer Interns

Intern 1: I don’t know what I’m doing for lunch. Do you think, like, Japanese food is cheaper than sushi?
Intern 2: Aren’t they the same?
Intern 1: I don’t know. I figured they cost about the same, but I’m not sure.
Intern 2: No, I mean, sushi is Japanese.
Intern 1: Huh? It is? What do you mean?

The rest of the conversation was drowned out by the sound of me banging my head against my desk.

  1. My guess is that Intern 1 probably meant non-sushi Japanese food, e.g., chicken katsu or something like that. You can get that stuff as a lunch special for, like, $6 or $7.

  2. Ha Ha Sound: I see your point, but judged on her tone, I’m willing to bet she doesn’t even know Ramen noodles come from Japan, let alone sushi.

  3. So…Did they get the Japanese or the Sushi?

  4. I was debating between pizza and Italian for lunch today.

    So you think she was serious?
    I was going to go for tacos today, but then decided I’d rather have Mexican food.

    When did you change your picture?

  6. Oh come on now, don’t hate the interns. They may be dumb, but they’re always good when used as scapegoats and/or drunken hook-ups.

  7. sorry, i’m still laughing.

  8. you’re lying right?
    just say you’re lying and that burning in my brain will stop.
    because no one is that dumb.
    um… i hope.
