Wonton-gate '08!

Yo this Cat is not happy. I brought into work a whole lot of left over Chinese food from the weekend and someone in my office either ate or threw out my wonton soup! I had big Tupperware filed with wontons. Plus someone took my last fried wonton. Oh but they didn't touch the rest of my Happy Family with mixed Chinese vegetables or Barbecued Beef with rice dishes!! Not that this food was expensive but it is the doggone principle of it! I confronted a few likely culprits but no admissions. Mark my words I will get to the bottom of this.
Hell hath no fury than a Cat who has his food stolen!

I guess you would call them a wanton thief.

Doc said...

I bet it was one of those evil Oil and Vinegar people who took it...

LeapOFaith said...

I hear ya...but I resent being considered a "likely culprit"!! There's been something that smells like it died twice in that fridge for days and I still won't throw anything out that's not mine! ; )

Doc said...

Good gosh - Happy Family, BBQ beef and rice, and a big tupperware full of wontons?? GOOD LORD !! They were probably trying to do you a favor and save you from a MSG overdose!

The Mountain Cat said...

Now if it had been an egg roll, there would be blood.

Doc said...

Maybe you should sent an e-mail to "Ask Doc and the Mountain Cat"

Penelope Anne said...

You know you will probably never find the culprit....so I suggest you find the most ridiculous looking lunch container that no one would dare touch to carry your yummy foods in....I used old gift bags when was working.

I am a sweet and sour pork gal, or fried dumplings.

I swear I didn't steal the food though.

The Mountain Cat said...

Hey Leap of Faith,
Yes we do have some rude co-workers who stink up that 'fridge.
A block of cheese did attack me last year when I opened the door. I still have flashbacks.

Doc said...

I am sorry but I am laughing so hard at my desk I am crying... I think I just snorted !!

This is the funniest thing EVER !! The great missing wonton Conspiracy !!!!


BWWWAAAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAAA !!!

The Mountain Cat said...

Penelope Anne, Thanks for the advice. Lets see who eats my Liver and Onions tomorrow afternoon!

Doc said...

Vince - You need to leave a bottle of Maalox in there or some TUMS for the thief to steal!

(btw- Penelope - Thank you for stopping by. I can't view your blog from work but I want to check it out at home)

Jahooni said...

Hey-wait just a minute, I read that little shrewd remark about the Oil & Vinegar people!

I think it was the sissy Cowboy fans that are just jealous of you and your Giants! Maybe the smirk that you have had on your face since the weekend made them want to steal it!

Doc said...

If Vince's wanton shows up in Indo-China... I want someone there in a bowl of rice.

Doc said...

Hey Vin - Who are you going to get to solve this caper Hong Kong Phooey ?

The Mountain Cat said...

And I will strike down upon thee with GREAT vengence and FURIOUS anger, those who attemp to steal my wontons.....

Leighann said...

Good luck on your prowl for justice!!

Dear Doc and The Mountain Cat,

Who stole my wontons?????!!!!

Regards,

Wantonless on Wall Street

Christine (vinces's sister) said...

You might need to call... "General Tso!"

The Mountain Cat said...

OH MY GOD CHRISTINE THAT MAY BE THE FUNNIEST THING YOU EVER SAID!!! ROTFLMAO!!!!!!

Doc said...

You should have given this food the ole "Orange Soda" treatment before you put it into the fridge... If you know what I mean...

The Mountain Cat said...

*HAWUCK! THUU!*

Doc said...

What are you going to do with your suspects to get them to confess, Wanton-board them ??

Christine (vince's sister) said...

Ha, ha...this is all just what I needed today. I've been feeling a little "Mushu."

Doc said...

Christine - I think there is a Pu-Pu platter joke in there somewhere too.

The Mountain Cat said...

And I wanted to dip those wontons in Arby's Horsey Sauce too! Frigin' tragedy.

Karen said...

Classic office situation. I cannot tell you how many times my yogart has gone missing. I have never sought justice, but I certainly support your quest.

Doc said...

Anyone else find the dichotomy of the "Cat" and the missing Chinese food ironic here....

Jahooni said...

TMC-
Funny Funny Funny. Aren't you just a comedian. Just for that comment, I am glad they stole them! ha!

The Mountain Cat said...

Hey Doc, 'Leapoffaith' is afraid that she can't compete with us. Lets give her some encouragement so she comments more often.

Doc said...

Well maybe she should take a "leap of faith" and comment more often... We like commenters more than we like lurkers.

(Check under her nails her for Duck sauce though.. Maybe she is scamming you and she is actually the wonton smuggler)

Jay said...

Office lunch thieves are despicable human beings.

Maybe you could make them all submit stool samples to determine who stole the food?

Actually, since it was Chinese food just keep an eye on them and see who is hungry again in 2 hours.

Doc said...

Does anyone else picture ole Mt. Cat in the copier room running off "Missing Wanton" posters and putting them up all over his office?

"Reward: 4 Packets Duck Sauce and 1 Packet of Soy"

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc, Did you notice that one of our Google ads for this Wonton blog says 'How Cute Is Your Dog?' Does Google automatically link dogs with Chinese food? Yikes!!

Doc said...

Ooooh Ooooh This just in... We just got this e-mail:

Subject: Pay Up or the wontons get it.

If you want to see your wontons again then pay us a ransom of three orange whips. If you notify the authorities then the wontons are toast.

Whoops I already ate the toast.

The Leftover Bandit

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc, you and I need some serious professional help.

leapofaith said...

LMAO!!!! This is too funny...and definitely just what we needed today!

...and Doc, even if I was the culprit, I certainly wouldn't admit to it now!!

Sadly, I ate Chef Boyardee today...as embarrassed as I am to admit that. I probably would've stolen the food if somebody hadn't beaten me to it!

...and as for the cat remark, simply not necessary. :-p

Christine (vince's sister) said...

I remember when I worked in NYC I used a coffee mug from the kitchen cabinet and "Gitti" yelled at me becasue it was her mug. I asked her, how was I supposed to know it was hers? And she answered smugly (and perfectly,) because it was not mine! I started using those cardboard cups from then on.

The Mountain Cat said...

Actually I just remember I have some else's cinnamon at my desk. I better put it back.

leapofaith said...

Mmm hmm, Vince...karma's a B%@#H! LOL! ; )

The Mountain Cat said...

It's Cathy's cimmamon and she knows I have it. :-)

Doc said...

Vince: Is she the one who doesn't like you walking past her desk?

leapofaith said...

Yeah...NOW she knows - since your conscience got to you and you came and 'fessed up! ; )

Don't think your wontons will reappear just cuz you made good on your end...not gonna happen!

Doc said...

Leap o faith - You guys at the office could start calling Vin "Spice Boy", "The Cinnamon Paizan" or "Sgt. Spice Stealer"

leapofaith said...

Spice Boy...now that's a winner! I like it...don't know that Vince will! LOL!!!

The Mountain Cat said...

No Doc that's Liz. We kissed and made up. I used to sit next to Cathy but she threaten to 'wash my mouth out with soap' so I moved desks.

leapofaith said...

...and now I have the pleasure of sitting in that seat!
