The Petition Game

The senate interns have come up with two new games to make the office a little bit more fun. The first involves counting petitions. We get literally thousands of petitions about hundreds of subjects every day. We throw them in a big box until the end of the week. On Fridays we get all the interns together, and make piles of all the like petitions (e.g. all the anti-abortion petitions in one pile, all the pro-physical therapy funding petitions in another). The goal is to make piles of 50 like petitions as fast as you can. The person with the most piles at the end of petition-sorting wins. Yea, studpid game, right? You try sorting and counting all those tiny pieces of paper.
