HILARIOUS MAN ASKS ‘WHAT CAN I DO YOU FOR?’
AN hilarious office worker had his colleagues in stitches yesterday after greeting one of them with the phrase ‘ what can I do you for?’ Simon Onions, a process processor from Hadley and Kemp Processing Ltd, made the comment early on Tuesday morning after his colleague Jeremy Sextoy needed the use of a stapler.
“There wasn’t one in the stationery cupboard,” said Sextoy, who then decided to ask Onions if he could borrow his. And it was on approaching his desk that the self-styled office comic uttered his hilarious phrase.
“He didn’t say ‘What can I do for you’, as you would expect, but ‘What can I do you for,’” said Sextoy, still doubled up with laughter. “He’d transposed the final two words of the sentence for comedic effect. It was comedy gold.” Other colleagues joined in hailing Mr Onions’ comical phrase. “‘What can I do you for.’ Yes, that was definitely brilliant,” said sales analyst Bernadette Whelks. “The funniest thing that’s happened here since Mr Rumsfeld used to say ‘How you diddling?’ to people when he met them.”
“Of course, HR suggested that he stop saying that, and I suppose they were right in the current climate. It was funny, but not in the same league as Simon’s ‘What can I do you for?’”
Mr Onions himself has remained silent on the incident, but is thought to be considering an offer from ITV to host an early evening quiz show.
