me: working from home gives me the opportunity to focus on tasks free from the the distractions of a noisy office!

brain:

TROUT

TROUT

LET IT ALL OUT

THESE ARE THE FISH I CAN DO WITHOUT

SALMON

I’M TALKING TO YOU

SALMON

me: cool never mind

@pisscotheque yeah one's own brain isn't always the best coworker 😂

@pisscotheque
Like the immortal lyrics "dirty deeds and they're done with sheep", and "pretty fly for a rabbi", I shall never hear that the same again

@pisscotheque i literally laid back on my training table and laughed so hard I cried at this. This is now my favorite post of all tine.

@ItsJenNotGabby ahaha i'm glad i'm not the only one with this damn nonsense stuck in my head now!!

@pisscotheque
I just sang this out loud. Now me and a friend of mine can't get rid of the tune.

@pisscotheque Posts online rarely actually make me laugh out loud

But this one sure did

@pisscotheque I listen to YouTube videos while I work so my annoying coworkers who live in my house and sit in my chair and are me don't start talking.

@pisscotheque lol so true.
I like to play some background noise, my favorites are coffee shop, rain storm, and airplane sounds. At the same time, some cool jazz or calm music.
I also like to work for x minutes straight with absolutely no distractions. All notifications off, and 20-40 minutes of uninterrupted deep work, rewarded by a few (2-5) minutes of distractions, getting a coffee, or finding what’s the farthest object I can see from the window (really good for the eyes!)

@awitch oh god rainstorm noises have saved my LIFE when i've been working on difficult projects

@pisscotheque Popping back in again to reinforce that this is still a big mood

@Shrigglepuss to be honest with you? this problem has only got worse for me ever since i made this post

@pisscotheque Tooting absolute bullshit is basically my second job now x

@pisscotheque this and "I'm sorry Miss Jackson, I am four eels" makes me wish there was a whole series of popular songs about fish

@interneteh the only limit is our imaginations, and also the number of songs/fish that exist!!!

@interneteh fr tho i still think about the four eels thing at least once a day

@pisscotheque i love this more than i can explain. i have reboosted it three times so far and i can confidently say that i will do so again next time i see it

@pisscotheque My wife and I argued over if salmon is pronounced as usual or like sah mohn. Please help!

@pisscotheque super important update, she didn’t realize it was a song until I recited it just now to demonstrate I had been correct and I don’t even

@pisscotheque

my brain, immediately:

THEY NEST ON ROCKS

YOU BREAK EM AND DISCARD THEIR SHELLS

AS COLD AS ICE

DEAD MOLLUSKS CANNOT TELL THE TALE

I HOPE THEY'RE TASTY DOWN IN HELL (TROUT)

TROUT

@page its the closest translation of the source material that 21st century english can offer

@pisscotheque the sequel he wrote was literally just called Ubu Cucked

@pisscotheque I'm pretty sure you stole this from a hypothetical future me before I could write it myself. Or I'm just disappointed my brain never saw this, but who knows?

@pisscotheque That song will never be the same for me. So... er.... thanks. :)
