I work for a language company that usually does translations but right now we have a profanity project going.

That means there are a lot of very serious conversations taking place that feature spectacularly dirty language. Every once in a while somebody just can’t take it anymore and breaks down laughing. I believe the phrase “fuck a duck” was one co-workers last straw. Another lost it on “assclown”. This ranks right up there with the time we were translating a hardcore porn site for hilarity. Anybody else ever have to deal with silly things in a serious manner?

I should add that we have an open floor plan office so everybody gets to hear these conversations.
