The Boss : "What's a starfish?"

Here's me : "Uh..."

I mean, wha?

The Boss : "Starflush."

Here's me : "Wha?"

The Boss : "Starfresh."

Here's me : "Context. Please. Context."

The Boss : "It's some sort of container."

I hit up the google. Everyone should know how to do so, at this point in human history, surely?

Here's me : "It's some kind of fridge container, used for fresh fruit or something, 'starfresh' is what Maersk are calling their new frozen fruit or veg containers. Why?"

The Boss : "Yeah... that's where I read about it. Why can't you ever give me a straight answer?"


  1. Mate... "It's an echinoderm of the class asteroidea. There's one in Spongebob Squarepants. He's call Patrick, but he's not indicative of the general starfish population."

  2. Not only your boss who can't manage an internet search .
    One of my colleagues informed me that they " don't really understand how to use that google thing" the other day.

    I despair and feel your pain


  3. I believe they are also known as freckles, ringpieces, rusty sheriff's badges....

  4. someone should wash your mouth out with soap.
