Friday Funny: Jingle Bells, Jingle Smells

Facility manager Charles Carpenter flexes his poetic muscle yet again with a fishy, fragrant take on the classic Winter holiday song, Jingle Bells. 

Friday Funny: Jingle Bells, Jingle Smells

Jingle Bells, Jingle Smells

A Facility Management-Inspired Adaptation
By Charles C. Carpenter, CFM
(To be sung to the tune of the classic “Jingle Bells.”)

Dashing through the hall,
To find the latest chill.
O’er the cords I fall,
Taking quite a spill.
Smoke detectors ring,
Strobes, they are so bright.
No fun it is to see them bring,
More crockpots that ignite.

Oh, jingle bells, What’s that smell?
It’s the microwave.
It’s no fun to have to work,
When fish is nuked by Dave!

Jingle bells, What’s that smell?
It’s the microwave.
It’s no fun to have to work,
When fish is nuked by Dave.

A day or two ago,
I thought I’d take vacay.
But soon my cell phone rang
‘Twas greeted by Jose.
Alarms were loud and long,
Misfortune seemed my lot.
Sprinkler flows were really strong,
And managers were hot.

Oh, jingle bells, What’s that smell?
It’s the microwave!
It’s no fun to have to work,
When fish is nuked by Dave.

Oh, jingle bells, What’s that smell?
It’s the microwave!
It’s no fun to have to work,
When fish is nuked by Dave.

Now the floor is white,
Ceiling tiles abound.
It’ll be a night,
To clean up all around.
Please give me one short day,
Two-forty on the clock.
When I just could, might or may,
Go flip the front door lock.

Jingle bells, What’s that smell?
It’s the microwave!
Oh, it’s no fun to have to work,
When a fish is nuked by Dave.

Jingle bells, What’s that smell?
It’s the microwave!
It’s no fun to have to work,
When a fish is nuked by Dave!
