Next, check out Overheard in the Newsroom, available in Facebook and Twitter (@ohnewsroom) flavors, too.

• Columnist filling out journalism contest entry form: “Shit. I almost put ‘alcohol’ where it asks you your hobbies.”

• Reporter: “So wait… you essentially want me to add 100 words worth of nothing. OK.”

“Oh, another furlough day. That’s like having sex and then finding out you have to pay for it.”

Reporter: “Isn’t that strange?” Other Reporter: “If everybody did things that were perfectly normal, we would be out of a job.”

Producer on how cold the newsroom is: “My urine is freezing inside of me.”
