It's that time of year again -- the time when everybody's bringing in boxloads of vegetables to give away at work.

It seems like a harmless gesture. Considerate, even.

But why does everybody always have so *(&%$#* many zucchinis?

I've always wondered how it happens. Does everyone just misjudge how many zukes they're planting? Do they intentionally plant a bunch so they'll be sure to have plenty to share?

Or does everyone just pass them along from somebody else who planted too many to begin with?

Either way, yeah. We've got 'em stacked up on desks all over the place around here.

Next time: Does anybody really even LIKE zucchini squash?
