A master class in office trolling

Left: Pat's mug. Right: Pat's ... mug.

Left: Pat’s mug. Right: Pat’s mug.

Name.com software engineer Pat Ramsey has a coffee mug featuring a clever joke about CSS. He uses it every day. It’s as synonymous with Pat as his ‘fro.

Well, Pat must have made some sort of grievous error Friday. He let his precious mug out of his sight. Someone washed it, and placed it on the shelf with the other coffee mugs in the kitchen. It must have sat there over Labor Day weekend. And come Tuesday morning, someone else got his hands on that mug.

The culprit was Alex Kehr, our social media intern. He showed no remorse in taking Pat’s mug, and then he posted the mug in the “free stuff” section on Craigslist (regretfully, I did not get a screenshot before he took it down). But Alex wasn’t content to brazenly borrow another man’s coffee mug, drink coffee from it, and gloat about it with a Craiglist post. Oh no. He went further.

He had breakfast.


He had a beer.


He hung out with Henrik.


He used the restroom (gross).


And then he destroyed the mug.*


Not cool, Alex. Not cool.
