GOOD NEWS: PRINCIPAL PRANKED WITH PRAISE
(From ABC News)
When a senior at North High School in Wichita, Kansas, handed the school's principal an empty bucket last Wednesday and told him to hold it, the principal brushed her off, thinking it was a joke.
When the principal, Sherman Padgett, returned to his desk later in the day and saw the same bucket atop his desk, he asked his secretary, Valerie Johnson, what was going on.
“Valerie just kind of gave me that look and said, ‘Go out and hold the bucket. It’s a senior prank and it’s going to be good,’” Padgett recalled.

WORST FOODS TO EAT AT WORK
(From Huffington Post)
Some unwritten rules: Always allow people to first exit the elevator before you get on it. When the host starts cleaning, it's time to leave the party. Never eat a tuna fish sandwich while sitting next to a colleague. Ever.
Certain foods must be eaten in the confines of a HazMat suit. No matter how delicious tasting your lunch may be, its powerful stink is not something your fellow officemates should endure. Of course, there are circumstances that cannot be avoided: Your sandwich came with onions, you just paid rent and eggs are all you can afford or the whole team decided to order Korean. All unfortunate, but permissible.
It'd be wise to study the chart below, which scales the biggest office food offenders from annoying-but-tolerable to entirely ruthless. Don't run the risk of being pegged as the smelly coworker who reeks of fish. It's not worth it.
Popcorn (Not bad as long as you don't burn it)
Hard Boiled Eggs
Fish of Any Kind
Fish Reheated in the Shared Microwave (The Worst!!!)
