Justin decided that it would benefit the lab (Justin is a network engineer) if they had a pair of these on hand:
Nerf swords are obviously ALWAYS a good idea.
One day at work we got to talking and thought it would be hilarious if we had a sword fight in the middle of the lab... without forewarning for his coworkers or his boss.
I'm guessing the room looked something like this before I entered:
Then I SLAMMED the door open and stood there staring right at Justin, holding the sword.
There was about a 5 second pause before the song Ironsides started blasting (you really should hear the song to appreciate what this would have looked like when it took place), and Justin whipped his head around with the craziest look on his face. He then very slowly stood up out of his chair, bringing the sword out from under the desk. I wish I could say I kept a straight face but his crazy face was so good I burst out laughing and kind of spoiled the seriousness of the moment... just for a second though.
Right at the peak of the song we dove at each other and faced off in the center of the room. We had a good sword fight for approximately two or three minutes.
It was awesome.
Justin tripped and fell behind his bosses chair. I took the opportunity to brutally stab him to death, then walked out of the room and closed the door like nothing had even happened. As the door shut behind me I heard victim number 2 say, "She's just leaving now???"
I obviously wasn't there, but Justin told me that he continued to lie behind his boss and "puke blood" for a good five minutes or so until he finally 'died'. Then he got up and went back to his chair.
I wish like hell we had gotten someone to film that.... it's just not as good when you've got to retell it with MS Paint.
