Have you ever watched a show like Candid Camera or Punk’d?
Well this year, we decided to have a little pranking fun of our own by asking people around the office how to cook a 25 lb turkey…in the microwave.
(Are you a novice to cooking? Please don’t EVER cook a 25 lb turkey in the microwave!!)
“Hey, quick question – do you know how long to microwave a 25 lb turkey?”
Conversation #1 with Gayle, our COO & CMO
“No – try YouTube”
(Gayle knows there’s a how-to for everything on YouTube!)
Conversation #2 with RAD, our President & CEO
“Yikes! Sounds like it’s time for a fryer”
(Leave it to the engineer to have a practical answer)
Conversation #3 with Jason from Sales
“Microwave a turkey?! Are you serious?!”
(I could just picture him shaking his head incredulously)
Conversation #4 with Alex from Solutions
“I have never done that before. I googled it and it said…So like 3 – 3.75 hours maybe?”
(The perfect Millennial response)
Conversation #5 with Julianne from Marketing
“HA no idea, but I would guess for a very long time. I’ve never microwaved a turkey either.”
(Politically correct, as always)
Since Julianne’s answer wasn’t quite enough to satisfy me, I took it a step further…
“Hmm, ok – maybe I’ll just wrap it in Saran wrap or foil and hope for the best”
“Hahaha don’t burn your house down!
…And with that, I knew she was on to me. 🙂
If you’re looking for something fun to do in the office (think IM) or with friends and family via text, I would highly recommend this joke. You’ll be laughing out loud for sure!
