I totally swear I am not making this up even a little bit

We recently received the following email from our administrators:

Dear all,

For security reasons we are cataloging all weapons. Please advise if you keep knives, guns, blowtorches, explosives or similar in your offices.

Regards,
Admin.

I have colleagues who keep arsenals in their basements. Literally, arsenals.

And lots of camo in bright orange in their closets. Weird world!

LOL!!!!!

If that were my school, I guess I would have to log in my red pen of death!

Guns and explosives I get, but surely they don't mean you have to come clean about the emergency shiv taped underneath your desk.

Hmmm. Should I report the butterknife?

What about the deadly stack of student papers?

I never kept anything of that sort in my various offices, due to not needing to, as in any given geology dept or mining company we aways had a plentiful supply of A)rocks B)Rockhammers and C)Laboratories full of interesting and disturbing stuff to make improvised explosives and weapons out of. (Only in the event of Zombie Apocalypse, of course. mind you, one has to test things occasionally)

All the good stuff, I keep at home.

I especially like the thought of profs hoarding blowtorches in their offices. You never know when you're going to need that can of aerosol hairspray and a blowtorch to improvise a flamethrower.

What!?? That just seems insane. Why do they even allow weapons? lol
