Journalists say the darndest things

A former Flint Journal editor used to keep a file of the stupid, sexually suggestive and outright funny sayings that occur on a daily basis in the newsroom.

Aside: Someday, I'll write a column about "Bounce the Chicken" Day celebrations each September. Actually, I need a former copy editor who organized the annual event to write it for me. (Please, please, please). End aside.

At one point this editor's quote file was extensive and covered years of overheard conversations in the newsroom. Today I stumbled across a blog that has made a daily habit of collecting these conversations.

So, dear BR, if you still have that list here is a place to put all those gems, or better yet, start your own.

Overheard in the Newsroom
