Found gloves

disposable gloves on a dirty keyboard
At work this weekend I was doing some maintenance that required me to visit a large number of my coworkers' computers. I started laughing when I got to this one and saw the pair of disposable gloves draped across the keyboard. There's some ambiguity about whether the gloves were intended as a comment on my glove habit or as a prophylacitc measure against the grungy keyboard. I suspect it was a little of each.

This is a grungy keyboard. Upon reflection, I see that it has taken 20 years to get this way.

I concede that your example is, indeed, a grungy keyboard. (Is that for the outdoor computing project?)

However, in defense of my assertion that my friend's keyboard is also grungy, I offer the following evidence that while on the surface it may appear relatively sanitary, lurking in its depths are the crumbs of a thousand breakfasts slowly decomposing into a potentially sentient and malevolent mass.

OK--Eww, to both yours and Dan's comments!! (Well, for Dan, mostly the picture...)
