Eating at Your Desk Creates a Vicious Cycle of Vermin, Disease, and Death

A new study says the crumbs from the sandwich you eat at work fall into your keyboard, and that attracts mice when you go home. As they eat, they poop on your keyboard. And it gets even worse from there.

Because then there's mouse turd on your keyboard, it gets on your fingers when you type, and then those same fingers are used to eat another sandwich at which point you have poop in your mouth. The researchers at London's Royal Society of Chemists tested keyboards and found food poisoning agents like e. coli, coliforms, and enterobacteria present. And it's all because you can't tear yourself away from your computer for 10 minutes to go to the break room and inhale some chips. Now excuse yourself, or you'll die!
