So Many Wa­ter­shed Mo­ments Hap­pen at Ba­nana Re­pub­lic

(in the George­town Ba­nana Re­pub­lic)
Girl #1: I re­al­ly love this dress, but I think it’s a tad too short for work. I’m on­ly sup­posed to be buy­ing dress­es for work right now.
Girl #2: Re­al­ly? It’s not too short for my of­fice. But my boss on­ly hires pret­ty peo­ple, so he likes it when we wear short dress­es.
Girl #1: Did you think I’m ug­ly?
Girl #2: No! Buy the dress and send me your re­sume.

Is That a Ba­by Bird in Your Bangs?

30-some­thing #1: Last night I was brush­ing my hair, cause you know I haven’t owned a hair brush in a year… And all these sticks and grass and dirt kept falling out.
30-some­thing #2: You are a dirty hip­pie, you need to use some soap!
30-some­thing #1: I don’t like la­bels, man. I don’t have soap.
30-some­thing #2: True, man, la­bels are whack. But dude, you smell.

Teacher: Okay, so the on­line quiz is up. You have a week to com­plete it, in your own time. I sug­gest, even en­cour­age, you to bring your lap­tops and get to­geth­er with your friends and have an “on­line quiz par­ty”. Last year we had stu­dents throw­ing “on­line quiz or­gies” but that’s an­oth­er sto­ry.

Good at What, Ex­act­ly?

Sta­tis­tics pro­fes­sor: If you’re not good-look­ing, you’d bet­ter be good; and if you’re not good, you’d bet­ter be rich… Oh, I’m sor­ry. It’s true, but I’m still sor­ry.
