6/31 for 21 Insurance Geek

This has absolutely nothing to do with Down syndrome, or my charming family, but when I'm not with them I'm usually at work, so it is slightly related, in the negative.

I stayed late at work tonight because I had to finish a mind-numbingly dull & remedial continuing ed course on-line.  The fact that I found the quiz questions below hysterically funny is a sign that I -
  A/ Worked too late
  B/ Drank too much coffee
  C/ Found my niche in life with other geeky insurance people who are weirdly amused by inane turns of phrase (turn of phrases?) and homophones.  

For example: 
"...ABC Company hosted a champagne New Year's Eve party for their employees and guests.  One underage guest partook of too many tiny bubbles...."

...John got in a argument with another customer over the last doughnut at a bakery and accidentally knocked over a tray of expensive hazelnut pastries.  John's actions are
  A/ An intentional tort
  B/ An unintentional tort
  C/ A hazelnut torte

A tort is a civil wrong; a torte should involve vanilla ice cream, Breyers, preferably
but if you don't have it then just whipped cream but only if it's real; if it's out of the can then nothing.  (that's for Cate & her superior pop culture skills)

Also, since we're on the subject, I'm going to put this out there into the universe:
  ~ Cars have brakes; hourly employees take breaks.
  ~ Plaintiff counsel went to law school (hopefully, apparently not always);
   the town council vetoed the new park.

  3. True. But none of my co-workers are Canadian so they don't get to use that!
