Office Bumper Cars

Add a little excitement to your work breaks
  [vote for,

Take the regular old office chair and add a little bumper skirt to it. Now get all your coworkers out into the hall, or remove all the cubes, and go at it. Movement can go in any direction, limited to only how fast your little legs can move you. No winners or losers, just good exercise. Work would probably have to offer some sort of whiplash clause to health contract, but think of the fun. True, no blue sparks come out at the top, but thats only half the fun, right?

       will your boss ride along behind you and change chairs as they are going?

       I would prefer a winners/losers version, more like a demolition derby. More destruction, crumpled chair parts, and body parts I suppose too...

       fairground bumper rides featured large in my teenage years and the lads who worked the rides would stand on the bumpers and ride along with you taking your money and flirt. how we admired their jumping from car to car mid-ride. <sigh>

       bumper cars are practically the only reasion I go to fairs anymore, and boy are they fun. Try spending the entire time driving in reverse next time.

       With all the liability considerations, they've taken all the fun out of all the bumper cars around here.
You have to do laps. Its not bumper cars, its driving in a circle.
A sign proclaims: NO BUMPING.
And the wait? 45 minutes. No thank you.
